Sample text

Each subject panel was required to spell out how it would interpret these criteria in their own areas. The Education panel in 2007 did this at some length. Originality was defined as a characteristic of research which is not merely a replication of other work or simply applies well-used methods to straightforward problems, but which engages with new or complex problems or debates and/or tackles existing problems in new ways. So, for example, a review of existing research can demonstrate originality if it analyses and/or synthesises the field in new ways, providing new and salient conceptualisations.

And this in turn means that domain-specific judgements are illegitimate if and when they are applied in other domains and in particular in domain-specific sets of evidence and inference, and this refers above all else to any claims that are intended to be generic or universal, such as those used in the Research Excellence Framework (REF). There are a number of ways by which such judgements can be made. The first is deontological, where the judgement is made in terms of a set of absolutely right actions or a set of universal precepts.

Though the purpose of these approaches is to support and strengthen a particular ideological view of human behaviour, for example, that members of the educational research community working together can make reliable and valid judgements about its activities, in reality these approaches favour those forms of research and judgement that can be described as empiricist and technicist. Ontological and epistemological beliefs underpin the development and use of strategies and methods by empirical researchers.
