if eligible, yes

You are eligible if: 
  • you have a contract with the University on 31 July 2020 (REF census date), AND
  • you have a 0.2 FTE or greater contract with Oxford; AND
  • you have a significant responsibility for research AND you are an independent researcher, i.e. not research assistants. 
The University is in the process of establish the potential pool of eligible staff, and drafting the Code of Practice for determining eligibility based on the Government's REF21 rules. 
If you meet the eligibility requirements you will be submitted. Unlike REF14 when the University was selective, 100% of eligible staff will be submitted in REF21, i.e. there is no staff selectivity.
