HEFCE commissioned the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and the Higher Education Academy to explore issues relating to academic teaching qualifications in the HESA staff record, and to recommend improvements to data quality and coverage in future collections.
Early Career Researchers, researchers under 35 operating without tenure, are the future of research, and their attitudes and behaviour matter. They are by far the largest group of researchers and they represent the future of research, yet there have been no recent investigations into their attidues towards scholarly communication and the extent to which their behaviours may prove transformational.

Methods – An online survey was distributed to all academic librarians in Oklahoma during Summer 2015.

Librarians who had been in the profession for over five years knew more about both bibliometrics and altmetrics than newer librarians.
Rankings of universities have become increasingly influential in recent years. This report demonstrates the dangers that this represents. It shows that international rankings are almost entirely based on research-related criteria, and if universities are to move up the rankings the only way of doing so is to focus on their research performance – at the expense of teaching, widening participation and other activities. The report analyses the data on which the rankings are based and demonstrates that these are of doubtful quality. It concludes by urging governments, university management and governing bodies to ignore rankings when making decisions and to do what they do because it is right, not because it will impact performance in rankings.
OFFA has tpublished a report and a set of tools to help universities better evaluate the financial support they provide.
