REF 2021 results

12th May 2022

BASES would like to thank all those who took part in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), the results of which were published today. The Association recognises the enormous contribution made by all the Panel Members of Unit of Assessment 24 i.e., Sport and Exercise Sciences, Leisure and Tourism. BASES also wishes to acknowledge the huge effort made by researchers across our community whose work was submitted to the REF during a Pandemic. Without your research, we would know less, we would be unable to conduct evidence-based practice and we would have less to teach our students.


BASES stands for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences. BASES is the professional body for sport and exercise sciences in the UK.
