Decree (2): Private practice arrangements for clinical
academic staff

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Medical Sciences Board, brings
the arrangements for the undertaking of private practice by clinical academic staff into line
with those for consultancies and other outside activities undertaken by university staff (see
Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 5. A, cll. 10--11, Statutes, 2000, p. 370), namely that
these be
done on a personal basis up to an annual limit of thirty days of such activity and subject to
approval by the appropriate academic body.

Text of Decree (2)

1 In Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 5. B, concerning Schedule C professors
(Statutes,
2000, p.
376), delete cl. 3 (e) and substitute:

`(e) He or she shall be permitted to engage in private practice in the
hospitals
in Oxford on such terms as the Medical Sciences Board may from time to time determine,
provided that such private practice

(i) shall be undertaken only in the name of the individual clinician concerned;

Decree (3): Procedures for the administration of the
University's Intellectual Property Policy

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Intellectual Property Advisory
Group, enables the University to comply with a condition of the scheme under which the
University's Challenge Seed Fund was established. At the same time opportunity is taken to
remove an illustrative phrase which might have been taken to imply that assignments of
intellectual property could not be taken directly in favour of the University; and to improve
the definition of `net revenue' as it applies to income generated from the exploitation of
intellectual property.

Text of Decree (3)

1 In Ch. VIII, Sect. XI, cl. 5 (Statutes, 2000, p. 551), delete
`promptly
assigning his or her
rights to Isis and/or to a third party specified by the University,'.

2 Ibid., cl. 7, delete `other costs incurred in protecting the
intellectual property and negotiating the arrangements for exploitation' and substitute `other
outgoings in protecting the intellectual property, obtaining approvals, and making
arrangements for exploitation'.

3 Ibid. (p. 552), insert para. (f):

`(f) Where intellectual property benefits from a grant by the University
of
Oxford University Challenge Seed Fund (`the Challenge Fund') the distribution of net
revenue shall follow the table in paragraph (c) of this clause, save that the
shares payable to the General Revenue Account (or an appropriate proportion of those shares,
where the grant by the Challenge Fund represents only a part of the funding for the
development of the intellectual property) shall be passed instead to the Challenge Fund once
the University has discharged its obligation to pay the employer's National Insurance
Contribution(s).'

Decree (4): Electoral Board for the Professorship of
Indian History and Culture

Explanatory note

The following decree enlarges the membership of the Electoral Board for the Professorship
of Indian History and Culture in order to ensure that all interests are adequately represented.

Text of Decree (4)

Notwithstanding the provisions of Decree (1) of 15 February 2001 (Gazette,
p. 644), Council may appoint a third member of the Electoral Board for the Professorship
of Indian History and Culture, so increasing the board to ten members in all.

Decree (5): Supplication for MA by graduates
admitted to an Honour School after receiving a Foundation Certificate

Explanatory note

Under the arrangements for the award by the Continuing Education Board (and formerly the
Committee on Continuing Education) of Foundation Certificates in English Language and
Literature and in Modern History (and formerly in Social and Political Science), which are
open to non-members of the University, holders of these certificates who are subsequently
admitted to membership of the University as undergraduates may read immediately for the
relevant Honour School without having previously passed a First Public Examination. Under
the current legislation governing the degree of MA, this has the unintended effect of
preventing them from supplicating for that degree as soon as their contemporaries, who have
normally been matriculated three terms earlier.

The following decree, made by Council on the recommendation of its Educational Policy
and Standards Committee, removes this anomaly for those who have already graduated in the
relevant Honour Schools. It is intended, for the future, to grant the status of Senior Student
to undergraduates holding a Foundation Certificate in the relevant subject. This will permit
their matriculation to be backdated by three terms.

Text of Decree (5)

Notwithstanding the provisions of Ch. VI, Sect. III, cl. 1 (Examination Decrees, 2000, p.
563, ll. 6--8), a Bachelor of Arts whose qualification for admission to a Final Honour School
was the successful completion of a Foundation Course at the Department for Continuing
Education may, with the approval of his or her society, supplicate for the Degree of Master
of Arts in or after the eighteenth term from his or her matriculation.

PLANNING AND RESOURCE ALLOCATION
COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decrees

The General Purposes Committee of Council has made the following decrees, to come into
effect on 8 June.


Decree (6): Establishment of Professorship of Internet
Studies

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council
on the recommendation of the Social Sciences Board, accepts a munificent benefaction from
The Shirley Foundation for the establishment of the Oxford Internet Institute, including the
funding of a Professorship of Internet Studies. The institute will consider the societal and
public policy implications of the impact of technology on the spread of information as
exemplified by the development of the Internet. The professor will teach and undertake
advanced study or research in the broad area of Internet Studies and will act as the first
Director of the new Oxford Internet Institute for an initial period of five years.

Text of Decree (6)

1 In Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 5. B, SCHEDULE A, concerning professorships
(Statutes,
2000, p. 380), after `Lester B. Pearson Professor of International Relations' insert:

`Professor of Internet Studies'.

2 Ibid., Sect. III, concerning particular professorships (p. 443),
insert new § 144 as follows and renumber existing §§ 144--6 (pp. 443--4)
as §§ 145--7:

`§ 144. Professor of Internet Studies

1. The University accepts with gratitude the benefaction offered by The Shirley
Foundation, and any further sums which may be contributed for the same purpose, for the
establishment of an Oxford Internet Institute, including the establishment of a Professorship
of Internet Studies.

2. The professor shall lecture and give instruction in the societal and public policy
aspects of the Internet.

3. The professor shall be elected by an electoral board consisting of:

(1) the Vice-Chancellor, or, if the head of the college specified in (2) of this clause is
Vice-Chancellor, a person appointed by Council;

(2) the head of the college to which the professorship shall be for the time being
allocated by Council under any decree in that behalf, or, if the head is unable or unwilling
to act, a person appointed by the governing body of the college;

(3) a person appointed by the governing body of the college specified in (2) of this
clause;

(4), (5) two persons appointed by Council;

(6)--(9) four persons appointed by the Social Sciences Board.

4. The professor shall be subject to the General Provisions of the decree concerning
the duties of professors and to those Particular Provisions of the same decree which are
applicable to this chair.'

Decree (7): University composition fees for Home/EU
students and certain others for 2001--2, and for overseas students for 2002--3

Explanatory note

The Department for Education and Employment has announced that the tuition fee introduced
for award-holding Home/EU undergraduates should be increased from £1,050 to
£1,075 for the year 2001--2, and that the maximum tuition fee to be paid through
postgraduate awards will be increased from £2,740 to £2,805. The following
decree, made by the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council, effects these
changes and related changes for the coming year. The University awaits an announcement
on the review of the arrangements which will apply in 2001--2 in respect of students from
the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Colleges will be informed of the position separately
once an announcement has been received.

On fees for overseas students, Council has already made a decree setting the levels of fees
for overseas students in 2001--2 (Decree (5) of 15 June 2000, Gazette, Vol.

130, p. 1331). For a number of years the levels of fees to be charged to
overseas students
have been set well in advance. Council has agreed that the level of fees for overseas students
should be increased by 4.5 per cent in 2002--3, the same rate used to set overseas fees for
2001--2. Clauses 12--14 of the following decree therefore set out the level of overseas fees
for 2002--3.

Opportunity is taken in clause 4 of this decree to set the fee for Recognised and Visiting
Students, which is half the Category A rate (i.e. £3,582 in 2001--2). Clause 5 sets the
fee for members of the University working on the Foreign Service Course at the Category
B rate (i.e. £9,546 for 2001--2). Clause 6 makes provision for the level of the
university fee to be charged in 2001--2 for the Diploma Course in European Studies (intended
primarily for Japanese managers) at the Category C rate (i.e. £17,499 in 2001--2).
Clauses 10 and 11 set the fee for the M.Sc. in Management Research Methodology, which
is being reintroduced in 2001--2.

`2001--2'.

    SPEECH BY THE PUBLIC ORATOR

    The following speech was delivered by the PUBLIC ORATOR in a Congregation held on
    Saturday, 19 May, in presenting for the Honorary Degree of Master of
    Arts

    Mr PHILIP MOSS

    Virum produco qui huius modi caerimonias tamquam digitos suos novit. hic est
    qui nos omnes, Oratorem, Procuratores, ipsum Vice-Cancellarium, tamquam
    veteranus tirones admonet dirigit tuetur; cum enim quadriginta fere annos
    Academiae servierit, tum plus quam triginta sunt ex quo Clericorum est
    Princeps, summi momenti munus, quod hic ita interpretatur ut sibi labores
    adsiduos vindicet, ceteris tale otium relinquat quali fruuntur ei quibus contigit
    ut conlegae summam fidem habere possint. permulta sunt huius officia quae
    plerique nostrum ignoramus, alia quia latere, qua est modestia, quam iactare se
    mavult, alia quia in Academiae negotiis cotidie magis intricatis, cotidie minus
    cuiquam intellectis, nemo est qui non aliquando huius auxilium imploret, alius
    alia in re, nam difficultatibus quisque suis inretimur. haud raro fit ut de intricata
    quadam quaestione quae ad totius Universitatis salutem pertinet haereant
    homines amplissimi, mussent ipsi egregii Procuratores: ad hunc itur, qui
    formularum ambages et sesquipedalia verba ut nemo alius explicet. nos
    humiliores tunc plerumque huius opem invocamus, cum de examinationibus
    deque discipulo aliquo ambigitur; nam in hoc saltem haec Academia Socrati illi
    adsentitur, vitam sine examinationibus esse homine indignam. hic est qui libri
    ingentis arcana evolvit, tenebras inluminat, terrores dissipat; qua in re ipse
    animum gratissimum velim significare cum totiens ab hoc sim adiutus ac
    gubernatus. videbar mihi semel hunc in re minima correxisse; sed adeo veri
    simile non est ut ultro me somniavisse concedam. sed quod vel maximum est:
    ita diligentiam summam, ita responsa accuratissima praestat vir comitate insignis
    ut nihil morositatis, nihil adrogantiae praebeat.

    Praesento virum qui praesentatione minime indiget, Academiae ministrum
    fidelissimum, academicorum amicum dilectissimum, Philippum Moss, ut
    admittatur honoris causa ad gradum Magistri in Artibus.

    Paraphrase

    The man whom I now present knows these ceremonies like the back of his
    hand. All of us—the Orator, the Proctors, even the Vice-Chancellor
    himself—are guided and directed by Mr Philip Moss, the veteran soldier
    to whom we are all raw recruits. He has served the University for some forty
    years, and for thirty-two he has been Head Clerk. His conception of that vital
    office has been to work with devotion, so that the rest of us can enjoy the ease
    of mind that comes to those who can rely on a colleague implicitly. A great part
    of his activities remains out of sight to most of us, both because of the modesty
    with which he prefers to avoid the limelight, and also because, as the workings
    of the University become ever more complicated and ever harder to understand,
    almost all of us, sooner or later, become entangled in some particular problem
    and have to call on him for help. It may be that some general point, involving
    the general health of the whole institution, is perplexing the high functionaries;
    the Proctors themselves are scratching their heads: then it has been to Mr Moss
    that they have had recourse, with his unequalled expertise in the complexities
    and the jargon of the regulations and the decrees. Less grand members of the
    University have invoked his aid, usually, in connection with some problem
    about examinations and a particular pupil—the University agrees with
    Socrates on this point at least, that an unexamined life is not worth living. He
    it has been who expounds the mysteries of that bulky volume, the Examination
    Decrees, who brings light into its opacity, and who chases away its terrors. I
    take the opportunity to express my own thanks for all the times he has given me
    wise and salutary counsel. I did once fancy that I had corrected him on a small
    point of detail; but it is so hard to believe that I am convinced that it must have
    been a dream. Above all, he combines great accuracy and great readiness of
    response with a complete absence of bureaucratic stuffiness, and he is as
    agreeable to deal with as he is precise.

    I present a man who needs no introduction, a devoted servant of the
    University, a friend for whom its academic members feel great affection, Philip
    Moss, for admission to the honorary degree of Master of Arts.

    CAREERS SERVICE


    Careers Advice Service for Contract
    Research Staff

    This initiative, provided by the University Careers Service at 56 Banbury Road
    (in addition to services provided to students), aims to encourage and enable
    academic-related research staff, who are employed directly by the University
    on fixed term contracts (contract research staff), to make and implement well
    informed decisions about their careers by:

    —providing impartial, professional, careers advice;

    —supporting them in recognising and developing the attributes necessary
    for successful career development;

    —enabling them to appreciate and explore the range of opportunities
    available;

    —assisting them to clarify their values, interests, abilities and skills and
    to relate these to possible career options;

    —providing access to a wide variety of careers information and resources
    to facilitate the formulation and implementation of career plans.

    The service operates flexibly in an attempt to cater for personal needs,
    whether individuals are generally uncertain about the career options open to
    them, considering reviewing or changing their career direction, or thinking
    about finding a new job in academia, commerce, industry, the public sector, or
    setting up their own business, etc.

    Following registration, members of contract research staff will have access
    to up to four, confidential, one-to-one meetings with a careers adviser to help
    clarify personal and career objectives and to identify the main career options
    open to them. They may also drop-in to see the Duty Adviser at the Careers
    Service to help resolve brief queries and make use of the wide range of careers
    information resources held at the Careers Service, including a computerised
    careers guidance system. Psychometric ability testing and personality profiling
    for career development purposes (with feedback) can also be arranged, on an
    ad hoc basis, where sufficient demand exists. In addition,
    three career development workshops (Career Review and Planning, Job Search
    Skills, and Effective Interview Preparation), all designed specifically for
    contract research staff who are looking to review their career options, or to find
    alternative work, are run at various times throughout the year. To book a place
    on any of these workshops contact the Institute for the Advancement of
    University Learning (telephone: (2)86808, e-mail:
    services@learning.ox.ac.uk).

    Further details of the service are available from John Kirwan, the careers
    adviser for contract research staff (telephone: (2)74736, e-mail:
    crs@cas.ox.ac.uk., Web site: www.careers.ox.ac.uk).

    RESEARCH SERVICES OFFICE

    The Oxford University Research Services Office (RSO) is based in
    the University Offices, Wellington Square (with satellite offices
    in the Medical School Offices of the John Radcliffe Hospital and
    at 9 Parks Road). The RSO is part of the Finance Division of the
    University's central administration.

    The RSO is authorised to process all applications to outside
    bodies for research grants and to sign research-related
    agreements on behalf of the University. It can also provide
    advice for those seeking external research funding or requiring
    information about specific initiatives (e.g. LINK, EU research
    programmes, etc.).

    Research-related contracts with industry and other external
    sponsors are negotiated through the RSO. Such contracts include
    agreements covering the sponsorship of research, collaborative
    research, clinical trials, services to industry, intellectual
    property issues, confidentiality issues, material transfer, and
    consultancy.

    The RSO produces a weekly electronic bulletin of funding
    opportunities with forthcoming deadlines for applications,
    electronic Research Funding News (eRFN), which is available to
    members of the University via the Internet at:
    http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/erin/. To receive a weekly e-mail
    summarising the contents of the bulletin, please contact Ellen
    McAteer, Information Assistant in the RSO (e-mail:
    ellen.mcateer@admin.ox.ac.uk, telephone: (2)70082). Non-funding
    research-related information is publicised via the RSO's
    Web-based Bulletin Board, which is also available to members of
    the University at:
    http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/bboard.htm.

    Contact details for certain members of the RSO are as
    follows:

    Ms Catherine Quinn, Director (telephone: (2)70158, e-mail:
    catherine.quinn@admin.ox.ac.uk)

    Dr Richard Liwicki, Head of Research Contracts Administration
    (telephone: (2)70011, e-mail: richard.liwicki@admin.ox.ac.uk)

    Mr Pierre-Manuel Espinasse, Head of Research Grants
    Administration (telephone (2)70043, e-mail:
    pierre.espinasse@admin.ox.ac.uk)

    Dr Michael Halsey, Assistant Registrar (Clinical Research Grants
    and Contracts), John Radcliffe Hospital satellite office
    (telephone: (2)22604, e-mail: michael.halsey@admin.ox.ac.uk)

    General enquiries may be addressed, in the first instance, to Mrs
    Jane Taylor (telephone: (2)70143), who will be pleased to direct
    calls to the appropriate member of staff. Further information
    about the Research Services Office is available from the Web
    site: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/.

    Submitting research grant applications to external sponsors

    All applications for external research funding must be endorsed
    by the University before they are despatched to the sponsor,
    whether or not this is required by the funding body. In order to
    do this, the University requires all applications made to funding
    bodies (such as the research councils, government departments,
    UK and overseas charities and foundations, and industry) to be
    checked and endorsed by the Research Services Office (RSO) on
    behalf of the University. The reasons for this are to ensure
    that:

    —the funds requested are sufficient to cover the research
    being undertaken (e.g. that correct and up-to-date salary scales
    have been used);

    —the costing rules of the University have been applied
    correctly (e.g. that the appropriate level of indirect costs have
    been applied);

    —the guidelines of the funding body have been followed
    correctly (e.g. that the funds requested may be used for the
    purpose proposed); and

    —the University would be in a position to accept the grant
    should the application be successful (e.g. that appropriate
    facilities are available to house the project, or that the
    proposed research does not contravene University policy).

    In addition, the RSO can:

    —advise on the factors which should be taken into
    consideration when costing research projects,

    —provide information on funding body guidelines, and

    —advise on the completion of the necessary application and
    internal forms prior to submission to the RGO.

    The administrative arrangements for submitting research funding
    applications are available from the RSO's Web site at
    http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/rgo/office.htm. In summary,
    these are as follows: applicants should submit the original plus
    one copy of their application, together with a completed copy of
    the University's Outside Grants (OG) form, to the Research
    Services Office, Wellington Square (telephone: (2)70146), or, in
    the case of certain clinical departments, to the RSO satellite
    office at the Medical School Offices of the John Radcliffe
    Hospital (telephone: (2)20311), leaving three clear working days
    for it to be processed.

    In connection with the acceptance of research awards and
    signature of research-related contracts it should be noted that
    Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 3, provides that `no official of the
    University or any other person employed by the University or
    working in or in connection with any department of or under the
    control of the University shall in connection with any invention,
    discovery, or patent, or ... process, or manufacture have
    authority to make any representations on behalf of the University
    or to enter into any contract on behalf of the University or to
    be concerned in any transaction whatsoever in connection
    therewith on behalf of the University except with the express
    consent of Council'.

    Enquiries relating to the day-to-day processing of research
    grant applications should be addressed to the RSO's Research
    Grants Office (telephone: (2)70146, e-mail:
    research.services@admin.ox.ac.uk), or, in the case of certain
    clinical departments, to the RSO satellite office, the Medical
    School Offices, Level 3, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington
    (telephone: (2)22544).

    PRENDERGAST BEQUEST

    Applications for grants from this fund are invited from men and
    women born in the Republic of Ireland whose parents are citizens
    of the Republic of Ireland, and who are in need of financial
    assistance. Funds may be awarded to both graduate and
    undergraduate students reading for a degree, or, in some
    circumstances, for a diploma, at the University of Oxford.

    Financial assistance is only available to students who are
    already at the University or students who have received a firm
    offer of both a faculty and a college place for a one-year taught
    Master's course. With exception for such courses, awards are not
    normally made to students in their first year of study. The
    Bequest does not provide full scholarships for study at the
    University, but, in general, is used to support students in need
    of smaller sums for maintenance and for specific projects.
    Amounts do not usually exceed £2000 per annum.

    Further particulars and an application form may be obtained
    from the Secretary, Prendergast Bequest, International Office,
    University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (e-mail:

    applications is 31 August. It is anticipated that applicants will
    be notified of the outcome in mid- to late September.

    sub-faculty, or department (indicative of the relevant electorate) in block capitals. Any names
    which are not so shown may not be published. At least one nomination in respect
    of each candidate must be made on an official nomination form
    . Copies of the
    form are obtainable from the Head Clerk (telephone (2)70190; e-mail:
    richard.brooke@admin.ox.ac.uk).

    In the event of a contested election, a brief biographical notice of each candidate will be
    published in the Gazette dated 14 June, and voters may wish to wait until
    they have read these notes before returning their ballot papers (which will be sent out to
    members of the electorate as soon as possible after the closing date for nominations, and
    which, after completion, must be received by the Head Clerk not later than 4 p.m. on 21
    June).
