We investigate the selection for Lecturers into the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) assessment exercise amongst the departments submitting to the Economics and Econometrics Unit of Assessment. Less than half of these Lecturers were submitted: 40% of the women and 53% of the men. After controlling for early career status, research output quantity and quality, co-authorship, department research ranking and location; we find more than half of the variance in selection probability is left unexplained. We also find a conditional (unexplained) gender gap in selection of 9.7%.
