Research Evaluation Framework 2014

The results of the UK Research Evaluation Framework 2014 were released publicly today. The School of Computer Science was rated 14th in the UK (and a close 2nd in Scotland) in terms of research outputs, which is a measure of how our research compares to the best in the world. Over 30% of our submitted papers received the highest 4* ranking, with a further 55% receiving the 3* ranking.

“We’re delighted with this result,” said Prof Steve Linton, the Head of School. “Coming alongside our top placement in the UK for teaching Computer Science, it shows that that we’ve managed to achieve a balance between our two core activities while maintaining the quality of each.  It’s a confirmation of our high standing in the subject and leaves us excited for future developments.”

On the broader evaluation metrics that include research environment and non-academic impact, as well as research quality, the School was ranked 27th in the UK (4th in Scotland). “We submitted three impact case studies ranging from cloud computing to improving cultural engagement through virtual reality,” said Prof Simon Dobson, the School’s Director of Research. “These are all strategic areas that we’ll be keen to build on.”

Institutionally, the University of St Andrews was ranked 19th overall in the UK, and 2nd in Scotland.
