Two star Quality that is recognised internationally in terms of originality, significance and   rigour.
One star Quality that is recognised nationally in terms of originality, significance and   rigour.
Unclassified Quality that falls below the standard of nationally recognised work. Or work which   does not meet the published definition of research for the purposes of this   assessment.

REF 2014 Code of Practice

QMU was committed to encouraging the submission of all of its excellent researchers to REF, including those whose volume of research output may have been limited for reasons covered by the Equality Act 2010.

QMU’s submission to REF was informed by an overarching consistent policy of equality and inclusion and a detailed  Equality Code of Practice has been developed and approved by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) to underpin this.

The development and implementation of this Code of Practice is a requirement of the funding bodies
