The History Department takes great pride in the work we do to ensure that our research has a real relevance and impact outside of academia. 100% of our research was classified as 4* and 3* for impact in REF2021 and this impact score is testament to our commitment to publicly-engaged research.


REF 2021: History Publications

Posted on: 23 June 2022 | Category: 2022 posts

It’s been a busy few years for publications for Liverpool Historians. We submitted 81 outputs to the REF, ranging from single authored monographs and articles to co-edited collections and scholarly editions of translated works. Our REF outputs represent only a fraction of the diverse work that we publish for a wide range of audiences.


REF 2021: History’s Research Environment

Posted on: 19 May 2022 | Category: 2022 posts

We had a 24% increase in 4* research across our outputs, impact, and environment since the last REF. Over the coming month we’ll be celebrating our achievements during the 2013-2020 REF Cycle and talking about what’s next for History at Liverpool in a series of blog posts. This post talks about our research environment and funding successes.
