Summary

1. This circular updates the list of members of subject assessment panels for the 1996 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), originally published in July 1995 as circular RAE96 1/95. It incorporates all changes in membership that have taken place since July 1995.

Background

2. Following consultation with the sector in November 1994 some 1,000 bodies (subject associations, learned societies, professional bodies and organisations representing users of research) were invited to nominate members of assessment panels for the 1996 RAE and to comment upon the structure and subject coverage of the panels.

3. The panel chairmen, who had been appointed by the four funding bodies in late 1994, were then invited to use these nominations to recommend panel members. In doing so, they were asked to take the following into account:

4. On average, one third of panel members and about half of panel chairmen from 1992 served again in 1996. This circular contains the final panel membership list.

Role and Operation of Panels

5. The chairmen and members of each panel were invited to participate as individuals, not as representatives of a particular group or interest. They accepted responsibility for providing two formal outcomes: statements of criteria for assessment and working methods, which were published in November 1995 as Circular RAE96 3/95; and the assessment ratings, published in Circular RAE96 1/96.

6. During the assessment process, some panels established sub-panels, which included people who were not members of the main panel, to advise on the assessment of work in sub-areas within their subject. This decision, and the selection of additional sub-panel members, was made by the panel and its Chairman. Annex A lists the sub-panels.

7. In all cases the sub-panels worked within the criteria for assessment determined by their parent panel.

8. Some panels referred parts of submissions that fell outside their areas of collective expertise to other panels or external specialists for advice. This included cases where submissions contained work of a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary nature.

9. Final responsibility for recommending ratings to the funding bodies rested with the main panel members alone.

10. Many of the panels had 'assessors' appointed by bodies with a major interest in the research funding in their subject area - including the research councils, government departments, the medical research charities and certain professional bodies. The assessors did not share in the direct responsibilities of the panel described in the previous paragraphs. Their role was to assist the panel by bringing a wider perspective to the discussions, and by advising on the research grants awarded by their bodies.

11. Each panel was assisted by a secretary who was a member of staff of one of the four higher education funding bodies.
