HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL


1 Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 7 July.

Decree (1): Honour Schools of Experimental Psychology and of Psychology,
Philosophy, and Physiology

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Psychological
Studies, Physiological Sciences, and Literae Humaniores Boards and
with the
concurrence of the General Board, amends the existing decrees
governing the
Honour Schools of Experimental Psychology and of Psychology,
Philosophy, and
Physiology (PPP) to provide for Part I and Part II examinations for
those
taking papers in Psychology in those two Honour Schools.

This is necessary to comply with the British Psychological
Society's
requirements for continued graduate recognition of the PPP course.
The
General Board has agreed to the change without prejudice to the
general
question of the introduction of second-year examinations, and without
precedent for other subjects.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations
and
Boards' below.


Text of Decree (1)

1 In Examination Decrees, 1999, p.
221, delete ll. 5--24, and substitute:

`1. The subject of the Honour School of Experimental Psychology
shall be the
study of psychology as an experimental science.

2. The examination in Experimental Psychology shall consist of
two parts. In
Part I candidates shall be examined in the subjects prescribed by the
Medical
Sciences Board. In Part II candidates shall be examined in the
subjects
prescribed by the Medical Sciences Board and shall also present, as
part of
the examination, a project report based on work carried out under
supervision
prescribed by the Board.

3. No candidate shall be admitted for the Part I examination in
this school
unless he or she has either passed or been exempted from the First
Public
Examination.

4. No candidate shall be admitted for the Part II examination in
this school
unless

(a) he or she has passed the Part I examination for
Experimental
Psychology; and

(b) he or she has satisfied the Moderators for the
Preliminary
Examination for Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology in the subject
Introduction to Probability Theory and Statistics or has passed the
Qualifying
Examination in Statistics as prescribed for candidates offering
Psychology in
the Honour School of Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology.

The Head of the Department of Experimental Psychology may
dispense a
candidate from the Qualifying Examination in Statistics in cases
where it is
clear that the candidate has reached an adequate standard in
Statistics by
virtue of previous study and qualification.

5. The examinations in this school shall be under the
supervision of the
Medical Sciences Board, which shall make regulations concerning them,
subject
always to the preceding clauses of this sub-section.'

2 Ibid., p. 511, delete ll. 5--36, and
substitute:

`1. The branches of the Honour School of Psychology, Philosophy, and
Physiology shall be Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology.
Candidates must
offer two or three branches.

2. The examiners shall indicate in the class list issued by them
the name(s)
of the branch(es) in which each candidate has taken papers.

3. No candidate shall be admitted to the examination in this
school unless
he or she has either passed or been exempted from the First Public
Examination.

4. For candidates offering Psychology, the examination shall
consist of two
parts. Part I shall consist of the one subject area, Psychology. Part
II shall
consist of two or three subject areas: Psychology, and one or both of
Philosophy and Physiology. For candidates not taking Psychology Parts
I
and II, the examination shall consist only of papers in Physiology
and
Philosophy.

5. No candidate who offers Psychology shall be admitted for the
Part II
examination in this school unless

(a) he or she has passed the Part I examination specified
for this
school; and

(b) he or she has satisfied the Moderators for the
Preliminary
Examination for Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology in the subject
Introduction to Probability Theory and Statistics or has passed the
Qualifying
Examination in Statistics for this school.

The Head of the Department of Experimental Psychology may
dispense a
candidate from the Qualifying Examination in Statistics in cases
where it is
clear that the candidate has reached an adequate standard in
Statistics by
virtue of previous study and qualification.

6. Candidates offering Psychology shall be examined by such of
the Public
Examiners in the Honour School of Experimental Psychology as may be
required; candidates offering Physiology shall be examined by such of
the
Public Examiners in Physiological Sciences in the Honour School of
Natural
Science as may be required; and candidates offering Philosophy shall
be
examined by such examiners as are nominated by a committee of which
the
three elected members shall be appointed by the Board of the Faculty
of
Literae Humaniores.

7. The examinations in this school shall be under the
supervision of the
Medical Sciences Board which shall make regulations concerning them
subject
always to the preceding clauses of this sub-section.'

3 This decree shall be effective from 1
October 2001, provided that
candidates who have embarked on either of the Honour Schools in or
before
Michaelmas Term 2000 shall be examined under the provisions of the
decrees
and regulations as they stood at the date on which the candidates
commenced
their course.

SPEECH BY THE PUBLIC ORATOR

The following speech was delivered by THE PUBLIC ORATOR in a Congregation
held on Saturday, 17 June, in presenting for the honorary degree of Doctor
of Letters

Mr EDWARD WILLIAM BARRY

Lately President of Oxford University Press, New York

Plurimi pertransibunt et multiplex erit scientia: haec Danielis Prophetae verba
in bibliothecae nostrae muro inscripta toties legimus quoties arduam illam
scalam ascendimus qua ad beatorum sedes doctorumque otia inceditur. quid
autem? nonne etiam extra Bodleianae pomoerium libros, lectores, scientiae
denique incrementum invenire possimus? sed cum abundent hodie librorum
auctores, tum in tanta scriptorum copia haud ita multi sunt qui apud lectorem
auctoritatem certam obtinent; quorum opera quisquis vult coemere ad Prelum
scilicet Academicum Oxoniense iter facit, libros libro inter tres coronas posito
insignitos exquirit, optima optimorum scriptorum scripta laetus devorat. ea
quae dico nemo nostrum ignorat; sed haud ita pridem apud Americanos tam
salubris doctrina iam paene obsoleverat, libri Oxonienses non nisi pauci
venibant, lucri denique exiguum quoddam in loculos redibat. in tali discrimine
hic quem produco ad Preli Novoeboracensis gubernaculum accessit, quo
moderante his viginti paene annis librorum copiam profudit, novas provincias
imperio nostro addidit, plurima optimae notae praemia consecutum est; quin
etiam cum de annalibus Americanis tum de hominibus tam praeclare meritum iam
est Prelum nostrum ut in illo genere praemia honorificentissima unicum ad
modum coacervarit, hominum vero excellentium vitas viginti tomis conscriptas,
doctis, Iuppiter! et laboriosis, maximo omnium plausu iuris publici fecerit. sunt
autem alii libri adeo omni doctrinae genere referti ut quisquis ad
investigandum est curiosior satiatus saginatusque discedat. hic est qui arcem
ipsam in aedificia multo commodiora amovendam curavit; hic iuniores educat
fovet provehit. de lucro autem si verba faciam, vereor ne homini modesto
occasionem offeram erubescendi; hoc tantum dico, amplissime est amplificatum.
quid uberius, quid fusius disputem? Prelum nostrum hoc gubernante locum
primarium obtinet, in aliis quoque transmarinis partibus rem gerere successu
maximo coepit.

Praesento virum de Prelo nostro optime meritum, doctrinae fautorem, auctorum
adiutorium, Academiae columen, Eduardum Barry, ut admittatur honoris causa
ad gradum Doctoris in Litteris.

Admission by the Chancellor

Academiae amice benevolentissime, Preli minister praeclarissime, Musarum
antistes humanissime, ego auctoritate mea et totius Universitatis admitto te ad
gradum Doctoris in Litteris honoris causa.

Paraphrase

`Very many shall pass through, and knowledge shall be multiplied'. We read
those words of the Prophet Daniel, written up on the wall of the Bodleian
Library, every time we climb that staircase to the seats of the blessed and
the quiet of research. But, after all, surely even outside the sacred boundary
of the Bodleian there are books, readers, and the increase of learning? Indeed
there are; but while the number of authors and of books is nowadays
enormous, it remains true that comparatively few of them have an
unquestioned authority with the reader. If they are what one seeks, it is to
the Oxford University Press that one must go, in quest of those publications
that are distinguished by the book between three crowns. We, of course, all
take that for granted; but not so very long ago its salutary truth was largely
lost on the Americans. Oxford books were being bought there in small numbers
only, and the profit coming in was unimpressive. This was the state of affairs
when Mr Edward Barry became Head of the Oxford University Press in New
York. In his period of almost twenty years at the helm the output of books
has become a flood, new areas of interest have been added to the traditional
domains of the Press, and it has won many important literary prizes. In
American history and biography, in particular, it has established a unique
record in this regard, and The American National Biography, an
impressively learned work in twenty-four volumes, has been welcomed with
universal applause. There is also an imposing array of reference books, which
will satisfy, or over-satisfy, the appetite of the most zealous seeker after
knowledge. Mr Barry presided over the move made by the Press into greatly
improved quarters. He is also famous for encouraging and training junior
members of the staff. As for financial matters, his modesty might be
embarrassed if I were to say much; I say only that profit has increased
enormously. Under his direction the Press has won a leading place in North
America, and it is expanding with success into Central and South America.

I present Edward W.Barry, who has served the Press so well, and who has
shown himself a patron of scholarship, a support for authors, and a pillar of
the University, for admission to the honorary degree of Doctor of Letters.

Admission by the Chancellor

You are a true friend of Oxford, an outstanding servant of the University
Press, and a most civilised supporter of literature. Acting on my own
authority and on that of the whole University, I admit you to the degree of
Doctor of Letters honoris causa.

UNIVERSITY OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE


Travel service

Many university staff need to travel as part of their work, for example to
satellite units, on field-work, or to conferences abroad. In some areas of the
world, there is considerable risk of infectious disease, which can be prevented
by travel advice and appropriate immunisations. The University Occupational
Health Service offers a travel service to staff who are travelling on university
business, with A consultant-led travel clinic on Monday afternoons. Bookings
are made by telephoning Oxford (2)82676. Those interested in using the
service are asked to telephone at least two months before their intended date
of travel, and preferably longer, because some courses of immunisation take
several weeks and the clinic is often very busy, with a waiting list.

The university clinic is not able to offer immunisations to travel companions
who are not themselves on university business, but will be happy to share the
advice provided with the relevant general practitioner.

For undergraduate students, in most circumstances the college doctor provides
travel advice and immunisations. However, medical students doing electives
abroad should contact the Occupational Health Service because of the special
risks they face of infection from blood-borne viruses. The University also
provides advice to leaders of expeditions officially approved by the university
Expedition Society.

work, as specified by the Head of Department of Experimental Psychology, and
this will constitute a part of the examination. In exceptional circumstances, the
Proctors
may dispense a candidate from the specified requirements on the
recommendation of the head of department, or deputy.

3. Candidates shall submit to the Head of Department of
Experimental Psychology or deputy, not later than tenth week in Hilary Term
preceding the term in which the Part I examination is to be held, portfolios
containing reports of practical work completed during their course of study
for Part I. These portfolios shall be available to the examiners as a part of
the examination. Each portfolio shall be accompanied by a certificate signed by
the candidate indicating that the portfolio submitted is the candidate's own
work.

This certificate must be submitted separately in a sealed envelope addressed
to the chairman of examiners. Where the work submitted has been produced
in collaboration the candidates shall indicate the extent of their own
contributions. Reports of practical work previously submitted for the Honour
School of Experimental Psychology may be resubmitted, but reports will not
be accepted
if they have already been submitted, wholly or substantially, for another
Honour School or degree of this University, or for a degree of any other
institution. The head of department, or deputy, shall inform the examiners by
the end of noughth week of the Trinity Term in which the Part I examination
is to be held (a) as to which candidates have failed to satisfy the
requirement to undertake practical work, and (b) as to which
candidates have failed to satisfy the requirement to submit portfolios. Failure
to satisfy
either requirement will result in a candidate's being deemed to have
withdrawn from the examination under the Regulations of the Proctors
concerning Conduct at

Examinations

(See Special Regulations concerning Examinations). The head of department
or deputy shall also make available to the examiners records showing the
extent to which each candidate has adequately pursued a course of practical
work. The examiners shall take this evidence into consideration along with
evidence of unsatisfactory or distinguished performance in each portfolio of

PART II

Part II will consist of a research project and either three written papers each
of three hours duration, or two written papers, each of three hours duration,
and a Library Dissertation.

1. Research Project

The research project will normally be carried out in the Trinity Term and the
following Michaelmas Term in the year preceding the Part II examinations.
Candidates will be required to do project work under the supervision of one
of the following:

(i) any member of the Sub-faculty of Psychological Studies

(ii) any other person approved by the Divisional Board provided that such
approval shall be applied for not later than Friday of fourth week of
Michaelmas Full Term in the year preceding the Part II examinations.

The research project shall be typed, and held firmly in
a stiff cover. It shall consist of not more than 5,000 words of double-spaced
text, of A4 size, excluding references, figures, and tables, but including a
summary typed on a separate page. No person or body shall have authority
to permit any excess in the number of words over the limit of 5,000. If the
research project exceeds the word limit the examiners shall take this into
consideration and this may affect the class of degree awarded. (See also (3)
below.)

2. Written papers and Library Dissertation

Each candidate will be examined in three areas of Psychology by means of
either three written papers each of three hours, or two written papers and
a Library Dissertation. The written papers will be selected from a list of at
least twelve options approved by the Medical Sciences Board and published at
the Department of Experimental Psychology. A list of options will be posted in
the Department of Experimental Psychology and sent to Senior Tutors of all
colleges not later than noon on Monday of the first week
of Hilary Term in the year preceding that in which the
examination is taken.

The library dissertation shall be typed, and held firmly in a stiff cover. It
shall consist of not more than 10,000 words excluding references, tables, and
figures, but including any appendices, and a summary typed on a separate
page. No person or body shall have authority to permit any excess in the
number of words over the limit of 10,000. If the library dissertation exceeds
the word limit, the
examiners shall take this into consideration and this may affect the class of
degree awarded. (See also (3) below.)

3. Further requirements for the Research Project and Library
Dissertation

The model for an acceptable research project or library dissertation shall be
a paper prepared for and suitable for publication in a psychological journal.
The subject of a
research project shall be an experimental or observational study performed by
the candidate, where experiment may include investigation of the behaviour of
a computational, mathematical, or other formal model of a psychological process
or a process having psychological application.

The subject of the research project must not overlap with the subject of the
library dissertation, if chosen, but either may (but need not) overlap any
subject in which
the candidate offers Part II examination papers. Candidates are warned that
they should avoid repetition in examination papers of material used in the
research project or library dissertation and that substantial repetition may be
penalised.

All proposed research projects or library dissertations must be approved in
advance by the Head of the Department of Experimental Psychology. The
procedures for
obtaining this approval will be notified to students by the Head of Department
of Experimental Psychology.

Two copies of completed projects and library dissertations must be submitted
to the Chairman of Examiners, Honour School of Experimental Psychology,
Examination Schools, Oxford, not later than noon on Friday of the eighth week
of Hilary Term, in the year of the examination. A certificate signed by the
candidate indicating that the work submitted is the candidate's own work, and
a statement of the number of words in the project or dissertation, must be
submitted separately in respect of each
research project and library dissertation in a sealed envelope addressed to
the chairman of examiners. Research projects and library dissertations
previously submitted for the Honour School of Experimental Psychology may
be resubmitted. No project or dissertation will be accepted if it has already
been submitted, wholly or substantially, for another Honour School or degree
of this University, or for a degree of any other institution.'

`(ii) Regulations

1. General

Decree (7) of 3 June 1947 permits the number of candidates offering
Psychology to be limited, if necessary.

For candidates offering Psychology, the examination shall consist of two parts.
Part I will consist of one subject area, Psychology. Part II will consist of two
or three subject areas: Psychology, and one or both of Philosophy and
Physiology. For other candidates, the examination shall consist only of papers
in Philosophy and Physiology.

Candidates taking papers in Psychology must take four papers for Part I and
six papers for Part II. The four papers for Psychology Part I shall count as
two papers for the Final Honour School. Other candidates must take eight
subjects in all, except that where three or more subjects are taken in
Physiological Sciences the total number of subjects required is seven.
Candidates taking only seven subjects will be required to attend at least one
practical class in Physiology. Not more than four subjects in Physiology may
be taken.

No candidate who offers Psychology shall be admitted for the Part II
examination in this school unless

(a) he or she has passed the Part I examination specified for this
school, and

(b) he or she has satisfied the Moderators for the Preliminary
Examination for Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology in the subject
Introduction to Probability Theory and Statistics or passed the Qualifying
Examination in Statistics for this school. The Head of the Department of
Experimental Psychology may dispense a candidate from the Qualifying
Examination in Statistics in cases where it is clear that the candidate has
reached an adequate standard in Statistics by virtue of previous study and
qualification.
The examination for Psychology Part I shall be taken during weeks nought
and one of Trinity Term of the
candidate's second year. The examination for Psychology Part II and for
Philosophy and Physiology shall be held during Trinity Term of the
candidate's third year. The dates of submission for assessed work are those
prescribed in sections 2–4 below.

The subjects in Psychology shall be those specified in 2. Psychology below;
in Philosophy those listed in the Regulations for Philosophy in all Honour
Schools including Philosophy, and in Physiology the papers and the
Dissertation listed under Physiological Sciences in the Honour School of
Natural Science.

Candidates may offer either a research project or a library dissertation in
Psychology, or a thesis in Philosophy, or a dissertation in Physiology.
There are further restrictions on the choice of subjects and requirements to
be satisfied within each branch, which are set out below.
The highest honours can be obtained by excellence in any of the branches
offered, provided that the candidate has taken sufficient subjects in the
branch and that adequate knowledge is shown in the other branch(es) of
examination.

Any candidate may be examined viva voce, except for Psychology Part I.
Every candidate shall give notice to the Registrar of all papers being offered
not later than Friday in the eighth week of Michaelmas Full Term preceding
the examination.

2. Psychology

PART I

1. The four written papers as specified for Part I of the
Honour School of Experimental Psychology will be set:

Paper I Biological Bases of Behaviour

Component parts: (i) Brain and Behaviour, (ii) Biology of Learning
and Memory, (iii) Psychological Disorders.

Paper II Human Experimental Psychology

Component parts: (i) Perception, (ii) Memory, Attention, and
Information Processing, (iii) Language and Cognition

Paper III Social and Developmental Psychology, and Individual
Differences

Component parts: (i) Social Psychology, (ii) Developmental
Psychology, (iii) Individual Differences

Paper IV Experimental Design and Statistics

Candidates will be required to show knowledge of five of the nine components
of Papers I–III.

They may do so by offering either two papers of two hours and one paper of
one hour or one paper of three hours and two papers of one hour. All
candidates are required to offer Paper IV (one and a half hours).

In order to be deemed eligible for Graduate Membership of the British
Psychological Society (BPS), candidates should ensure that the papers they
take provide coverage of at least five of the six areas defined in the BPS
Qualifying Examination syllabus. To do this, for paper I they must
select at least one of components (i) and (ii); for paper II they must
select at least one component, but not both components (ii) and (iii); and for
paper III they must select at least two components. The other requirements
for BPS Graduate Membership are set out in Part II below.

Candidates will be required to undertake practical work, as specified by the
Head of the Department of
Experimental Psychology, and this will constitute a part of the examination. In
exceptional circumstances the Proctors may dispense a candidate from the
specified
requirements on the recommendation of the head of
department, or deputy.
Candidates shall submit to the Head of the Department of Experimental
Psychology or deputy, not later than tenth week of Hilary Term preceding the
term in which the Part I examination is to be held, portfolios containing
reports of their practical work. The provisions of this clause, which follow,
apply to the Experimental Project and to the other practical work. These
portfolios shall be available to the examiners as a part of the examination.
Each portfolio shall be accompanied by a certificate signed by the candidate
indicating that the portfolio submitted is the candidate's own work. This
certificate must be submitted separately in a sealed envelope addressed to the
chairman of examiners. Where the work submitted has been produced in
collaboration the candidates shall indicate the extent of their own
contributions. Reports of practical work previously submitted for the Honour
School of Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology may be resubmitted, but
reports will not be accepted if they have already been submitted, wholly or
substantially, for another Honour School or degree of this University, or for
a degree of any other institution. The head of department, or deputy, shall
inform the examiners by the end of noughth week of the Trinity Term in
which the Part I examination is to be held (a) as to which
candidates have failed to satisfy the requirement to undertake practical work,
and (b) as to which candidates have failed to satisfy the
requirement to submit portfolios.

Failure to satisfy
either requirement will result in a candidate's being deemed to have
withdrawn from the examination under the Regulations of the Proctors
concerning Conduct at
Examinations (see Special Regulations concerning Examinations). The head of
department or deputy shall also make available to the examiners records
showing the extent to which each candidate has adequately pursued a course
of practical work. The examiners shall take this evidence into consideration
along with evidence of unsatisfactory or distinguished performance in each
portfolio of practical work.
A candidate who fails the Part I examination may retake the examination once
only, in Michaelmas Term of the following academic year.

Qualifying Examination in Statistics

Any candidate offering Psychology who has not satisfied the Moderators for
the Preliminary Examination for Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology in the
subject Introduction to Probability Theory and Statistics must pass a
Qualifying Examination in Statistics before being admitted for examination in
the Honour School. The Head of
the Department of Experimental Psychology shall have the capacity to dispense
a candidate from the examination in cases where it is clear that an individual
has reached an adequate standard by virtue of previous study and
qualification.

The syllabus and paper set for the examination shall be that for the subject
Introduction to Probability Theory and Statistics in the Preliminary
Examination for Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology.
For all papers in Psychology and for the Qualifying Examination in Statistics,
the examiners will permit the use of any hand-held pocket calculator subject
to the
conditions set out on p. 1074.

4. Physiology

Candidates may take any of the subjects (1) to (12) and the dissertation
specified under Physiological Sciences in the Honour School of Natural Science.
A dissertation may only be offered if at least three other papers in Physiology
are taken and should be on a topic related to the physio-
logical sciences as approved by or on behalf of the Medical Sciences Board.
The subject of a dissertation may be experimental work performed by the
candidates themselves, or a report based on a temporary association with an
established worker or research group (as when the necessary practical skills
cannot be mastered in the time available), or a critical review based on
individual reading. The dissertation shall be typed but need not be bound
provided it is held firmly in a stiff cover. The dissertation shall not exceed
10,000 words

(excluding figures, diagrams, and references), but a dissertation of
4,000–5,000 words will be considered ample when the candidate has
performed an appreciable quantity of personal experimental work. Topics for
dissertations shall be included on the list circulated by the Medical Sciences
Board for candidates in the Honour School of Physiological Sciences and
candidates may also propose topics not on that list in accordance with the
same regulations.

The timetable for giving notice of an
intention to offer a dissertation or for seeking approval for a dissertation not
on the approved list shall be the same as those set out in the same
regulations for candidates not on the Register of Medical Students.
Dissertations (two copies) must be sent to the Chairman of the Examiners of
the Honour School of Psychology, Philosophy, and Physiology, Examination
Schools, Oxford, not later than noon on Friday of the second week of
Trinity Term in which the examination is to be held. A certificate signed by
the candidate indicating that the dissertation is the candidate's own work
must be submitted separately in respect of each dissertation in a sealed
envelope addressed to the chairman of examiners. Where the work submitted
has been produced in collaboration
the candidates shall indicate the extent of their own
contributions.

Dissertations previously submitted for the Honour School of Psychology,
Philosophy, and Physiology may be resubmitted. No dissertation will be
accepted if it has
already been submitted, wholly or substantially, for
another Honour School or degree of this University, or
for a degree of any other institution.

Candidates offering three or more papers in Physiology shall submit signed
notebooks providing evidence of attendance at one practical class during their
course of study provided that candidates offering a dissertation involving
substantial laboratory work and also offering at least three papers in
Psychology may apply to the Medical Sciences Board for exemption from one
such practical class. Each notebook shall be accompanied by a certificate
signed by the candidate indicating that the notebook submitted is the
candidate's own work. This certificate must be submitted separately in a
sealed envelope addressed to the chairman of examiners. Where the work
submitted has been produced in collaboration the candidates shall indicate the
extent of their own contributions. Any practical class which does not
constitute a regular departmental practical shall be subject to approval by or
on behalf of the Medical Sciences Board.

The signed notebooks shall be available to the examiners at any time
prescribed by them before the written examination and shall be taken into
consideration by them. The examiners may also require further examination of
the candidate on practical work.

Candidates who are examined viva voce may be asked about the practical work
done during their course of study.'
