Abstract/Summary There have been a large number of studies carried out in which scores in the United Kingdom's Research Assessment Exercise have been correlated against citation counts. Subjects that have received scrutiny include Civil Engineering, Psychology, Business and Management Studies, Library and Information Management, Genetics, Archaeology and Music. Somewhat surprisingly, the strongest correlations have been found in music. The paper will review these results and provide some explanations for the correlations. The paper will then go on to report on-going research which examines the use of h index and g index measures in the fields of Pharmacy, Library and Information Management and in Anthropology to see if they are correlated with RAE scores. This is believed to be the first time research has been carried out where the h index and its derivatives have been correlated against RAE scores.
