Abstract

In the Research Assessment Exercise, carried out roughly every four years, each university department in the UK is given a “mark” according to research performance. In the recently announced 1996 results, the materials science and metallurgy departments did extraordinarily well, five scoring the top mark (5). A compilation of the results is presented.
