There have been many studies over the years (primarily authored by one C.
Oppenheim, but also by others) demonstrating a statistically significant
correlation between citation counts by academics returned for the RAE and
their department's eventual RAE scores. These studies cover hard science,
soft science and humanities; not sure if any studies have been done in
engineering subjects though.
