Dear Members,
MeCCSA has responded to the consultation on proposals for the Research 
Excellence Framework (REF), promoted by the Higher Education Funding 
Council for England (HEFCE).

The consultation had set out proposals for all key aspects of the 
framework and invited responses from across the UK and invited responses 
from the higher education sector as well as organisations with an 
interest in the use and impact of research  from the private, public 
and third sectors, to be submitted by 16 December 2009.

You can download MeCCSA's response to the consultation from

On the same page you will find also other relevant organizations 
responses to the Consultation, including
- SCUDD (The Standing Conference of University Drama Departments)
- SOCHODS (Council of UK Heads and Professors of Sociology)
and shortly a link to the response of the Library and Information 
Science Research Coalition (LISRC).

May I take this occasion to wish you all the best for the forthcoming 
festivities and a Happy New Year 2010.

Hope to see you at the MeCCSA's annual conference, this year at the LSE, 
on 6-8 January 2010
