Could you give some information on how to respond to RFE on "documentary evidence for 3 year research experience"? Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

It's not particularly complicated: just produce letters from your previous employers / school (if you graduated less than 3 years ago and if your research during school was considered outstanding) showing that your duties and responsibilities were comprised of research, essentially. Letters have to be on letterhead from the place you worked/studied at, signed by a person who can make such claims (manager/etc).

hope that helps.

Thank you.. So you meant PhD advisor's letter is good enough?.. My original submission had my advisor's letter though.

Yes, I had another letter from my advisor saying that my duties were to publish in top-notch venues, mentor junior members of the lab etc. Good luck.
