The universities' research assessment exercise 1992: a second opinion

Lancet. 1993 Sep 11;342(8872):665-6. doi: 10.1016/0140-6736(93)91765-e.


We compared assessments of university departments of general practice by the heads of department with those of The UK University Funding Council. There was little difference between them. The departmental heads' assessment was quicker and cheaper. Current means of assessing academic departments may need to be reconsidered.
