Read our newest preprint on how COVID-19 influence peer review evaluation processes using REF2021 as an example. Gemma Derrick and Julie Bayley have written the following paper found here on the Open Science Framework about how peer review processes will change because of COVID-19.

This project explores how peer review committees might sensitively account for the disruption to ‘normal’ research trajectory due to COVID-19. It uses the REF2021assessment of impact as an example, but it applicable for all peer review sites of assessment that will need to mediate the effects of, and navigate new working arrangements as a consequence of the COVID-19 crisis. Full overview details of the paper can be found here.
