Pardon my ignorance, but what is RAE?

Research Assessment Exercise - otherwise known as life or death in UK academia. You can now be sacked if you're not included in a university's return to the state funding agency. It determines how much cash they get, and perhaps whether departments close down.

These people list where you can and can't publish; and have it recognized, that is.

Governments like counting things, especially before they dole out cash.
