RESEARCH DASHBOARD > NRF EVALUATION AND RATING

The NRF rating remains one of the primary South African measures of research quality at tertiary level and the rating carries with it prestige and valuable leverage for international collaborations and funding. The NRF bases its evaluation and rating of individuals primarily on the quality and impact of recent research outputs, as judged by national and international peers. Ratings are awarded in five categories (described below), each targeting researchers with an established track record (categories A, B and C) or those who show promise of becoming established within a few years (categories P, Y and L).

In 2010, UCT submitted 27 new rating applications, compared with 47 in 2009. Forty one applications were submitted for re-evaluation, up from 34 in 2009. All applications were successfully rated. Figure 7 reflects a breakdown of the total number of NRF-rated researchers across the various categories at UCT.

Description of NRF Rating Categories
 
 

A - World leaders renowned for the high quality and impact of their research.

B - Researchers with considerable international stature.

C - Established researchers who produce research of an international standard.

P - Young researchers (normally younger than 35 years of age) who obtained their doctoral degrees not more than 5 years ago and who, on the basis on exceptional performance, are recognised internationally as having the potential to become future leaders in their field.

Y - Younger researchers (normally younger than 35 years of age) who obtained their doctoral degrees not more than 5 years ago and who, on the basis of their performance, are recognised as showing promise of establishing themselves as researchers within a five-year period after evaluation.

L -   Academics (normally younger than 55 years) who have demonstrated potential or ability as researchers in the past, and who now can show promise of being able to establish or re-establish themselves as researchers within a five-year period after submission of evaluation documents.
