Although peer review has the possibility of abuse, it remains the most favoured and most widely used form of scrutiny. Many other options have been explored but peer review continues to command respect as the fairest approach. As a human process, peer review may, at times, be flawed but it is still the preferred method throughout the research world. 8 Research assessment In the 1980s and 1990s, national governments have become interested in national public scrutiny of research performance in universities, recognizing that public funding of university-based research is a major component of the national budget while, at the same time, recognizing that it is difficult to measure the public benefit arising from such expenditure.

The exercise is an assessment process based on peer review and is not mechanistic. Assessment panels use professional judgement and evidence submitted. General principles guiding RAE are: clarity, consistency, credibility, efficiency, neutrality, parity and transparency. RAE defines research as original investigation undertaken in order to gain knowledge and understanding. It includes work of direct relevance to the needs of commerce and industry, as well as to the public and voluntary sectors; scholarship; the invention and generation of ideas, images, performances and artefacts including design, where these lead to new or substantially improved insights; and the use of existing knowledge in experimental development to produce new or substantially improved materials, devices, products and processes, including design and construction.

More generally, research in universities might also be deemed to include the following: • Scholarship – a term introduced by Sir Ron Dearing in his report on higher education (Dearing 1997) and coupled with research. • Applied knowledge – the use of existing knowledge in experimental development to produce new or substantially improved materials, devices, products and processes, including design and construction. The research context 19 • Work of direct relevance to the needs of commerce and industry, the public sector and others, where the principles of enquiry and investigation leading to original findings occur sometimes in the form of contract research or knowledge-based consultancy.
