Quantitative Research: An Introduction

Computational and Mathematical Modeling in the Social Sciences

British experience under the RAE suggests that social scientists (and other PBRF-eligible staff) are likely to take the PBRF into account in determining how they allocate their time between their many and varied responsibilities.
