POST: 3 Reasons Why REF2014 was Good for Digital Humanities Scholars

Simon Tanner (King’s College, London) authored a post¬†proposing three reasons¬†why the much-debated¬†Research Excellence Framework (REF2014)¬†benefited Digital Humanities scholars:
  1. The framework recognizes digital humanities research resources
  2. The framework demonstrates that digital humanities “enhances the research environment”
  3. The framework shows that digital humanities “has impact”

Tanner ponders whether research excellence can truly be measured, but reiterates that this report acknowledges the rising disciplinary tide of digital humanities.
