EDUCATIONAL RECORDING AGENCY


Survey of off-air recording

This notice is to inform members of the University about a survey
of educational recordings in which the University is obliged to
participate this year, and to request co-operation in collecting the
necessary information.

The University (including its constituent colleges) is covered by
an Educational Recording Agency (ERA) Licence to record radio and
television broadcasts and cable programmes for educational use,
without infringing copyright. The University pays about £24,000
per annum for this licence.

It is a condition of the licence that institutions may be
required to maintain for a specified period of time details of radio
and television recordings made under the licence and to return this
information to the ERA. Oxford University has been selected to take
part in ERA's survey during the period 1 September 1998 to 31
August 1999
and the University is therefore asking all staff
for assistance in collating the information required.

In each department and college, and some faculty offices, an
individual has been nominated as the local co-ordinator for the
survey. All staff are asked to give details to the most appropriate
co-ordinator of all recordings of radio and television programmes
which they make for educational purposes whether at home, in the
University, or elsewhere. The information required is the title,
date, and channel of the programme, and the location where the
recording was made. As statistics have to be returned by the
University at the end of every month, it is important that a co-
ordinator is informed as soon as possible after a recording is made.

The identity of the local co-ordinator should be publicised in
each department, college, and (where appropriate) faculty office. If
it is not clear, the departmental administrator, senior tutor, or
faculty office administrator should be able to identify the co-
ordinator. In cases of difficulty, details of recordings can be
passed instead to the University's central co-ordinator, Miss
Catherine Long, at the ETRC (telephone: (2)70529, e-mail:
catherine.long@etrc.ox.ac.uk). It is, of course, necessary to pass
information about recordings only to one co-ordinator; there is no
need, for example, to inform both a college co-ordinator and a
faculty co-ordinator but simply the one which is most convenient.

Please note that ERA are likely to visit the University at some
stage during the survey period and to monitor the information
returned against recordings held by the University. It is therefore
important that the required information is collected carefully and
that recordings are available for inspection if necessary. It is also
important to note the requirement (which is general and not just for
the period of the survey) that each recording should be labelled with
the date and time, and with the statement that `This recording is to
be used only for educational purposes'.

It is hoped that the survey will not cause too much
inconvenience, and the full co-operation of members of the University
would be appreciated.

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB

Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the University, was
established in 1988. The company has been formed to exploit know-how
arising out of research funded by the UK Government through the
Research Councils and funded by other bodies where the rights are not
tied. The function of the company is to ensure that the results of
research bring rewards to Oxford, and to the inventors, who are given
a financial incentive for exploitation.

Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums and/or royalties for
the use of know-how arising out of research. Isis also exploits the
intellectual property of the University by setting up individual
companies using venture capital or development capital funds.

Isis' services are also available to individuals who wish to
exploit the results of research supported by non-Research Council
sources, when there are no prior conditions on the handling of the
intellectual property rights. Isis Innovation has at its disposal a
small pre-seedcorn fund for paying the costs of protecting
intellectual property rights and for taking work to a stage where its
potential can be assessed.

Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new ideas can be
developed for market requirements. The company has established the
Oxford Innovation Society for major industrial companies, so that
they can have a window on Oxford technology and an opportunity to
license and invest where appropriate.

A brochure explaining Isis' activities is available. Please
contact the above address, or the telephone and fax numbers given
below.

Members of the University should contact the Managing Director if
they wish to take advantage of the services that Isis provides.

OXFORD UNIVERITY TELECOMMUNICATIONS
NEWSLETTER

Newsletter no. 43


1. Invoices for January–April 1999

We apologise for the delays in preparing these invoices. This has
been due to technical difficulties with the call logger.


2. Big Number—how the telephone
number changes will affect you

The conversion of all national area codes to 01xxx and international
numbers to 00xxx on Phone Day, a couple of years ago, has enabled
Oftel to use the other ranges of codes, 02xxx, 03xxx etc., to
rationalise and simplify the structure and tariffs of non-geographic
number ranges and allow more telephone numbers to be introduced to
satisfy the enormous demand for new numbers.

This is being publicised as `Big Number', and will unfold over the
next year or two. Full details will be found at
http://www.numberchange.org/, but the essence of this programme is to
reorganise telephone numbers into the following ranges:

01 Area codes

02 New area codes (see below)

03 Reserved for area codes

04 Reserved for future use


05 Reserved for future use

06 Reserved for future use

07 Mobiles, pagers, and personal numbers

08 Freephone and special services

09 Premium rate services

00 International

Area codes

It should be emphasised that most area code numbers, including Oxford
01865, will be unaffected as they already fall within the 01 range.
However, new codes are being introduced for a few areas where there
is particular pressure on numbers, as follows:

London: 0207 instead of 0171; 0208 instead of
0181

Southampton: 023 80 instead of 01703

Portsmouth: 023 92 instead of 01705

Cardiff: 029 20 instead of 01222

Coventry: 024 76 instead of 01203

Belfast: 028 90 instead of 01232

These new Area Codes become available from 1 June 1999 but will work
in parallel with the old codes until 14 October 2000, when the old
codes will be discontinued.

Non-geographic codes

The new ranges for mobiles, pagers and personal numbering, freephone,
special rate and premium rate services are being introduced
progressively, with some already in use. This restructuring will, for
instance, eventually remove the nonsense of two almost identical
codes, 0990 and 0991, one of which has a tariff which is nearly 20
times as expensive as the other. Would you know which is
which? (Answer below.)

How it will affect users

Most of the implications of these changes will be dealt with by the
Telecomms Section but there are three actions which must be done by
individual telephone users:

1 Arrange for private payphones to be reprogrammed with
correct
tariffs for the new codes. Otherwise revenue may be lost or calls
may not be connected.

(If you wish to avoid the need to manage payphones and collect
money from them, now may be the time to consider approaching BT or
other suppliers to replace privately run payphones with a managed
payphone service?)

2 Reprogram faxes, telephones, etc. which are preprogrammed to
dial the old codes.

3 Check that autodials for alarms etc which
report to commercial security companies are properly programmed.
(But not alarms monitored by OU Security, which will not
be affected.)


3. Monthly billing

Following our announcement of the proposal to send bills monthly we
have had equal numbers of positive and negative responses—just
one of each. We therefore will be initiating monthly billing as from
August 1999.


4. ACC Student Telephone Service

We will shortly need to place orders for any equipment needed to
provide additional lines for Michaelmas term, so, if you are planning
to instal student phones for the new academic year, please let us
know immediately.

Some students, especially foreign students, have expressed concern
that the cost of international calls from ACC-provided phones is
significantly higher than calls made via low cost carriers such as
First telecom, Swiftcall, etc.

When the Telecommunications Committee arranged the ACC contract it
was aware of this potential problem and recommended the retention of
some non-ACC phones (e.g. payphones or OUTN extensions) in corridors
etc., from which students for whom the cost of international calls is
a serious issue may make calls via the other discounted carriers.

However, in comparing costs, it must be remembered that ACC are
paying not only for call charges but also for the infrastructure
which connects colleges' cabling via the University network to their
network in London. Students pay no installation or running costs,
just call charges. ACC have to make a sufficient margin on their call
charges to pay for their generous capital investment in Oxford
colleges and their running expenses.

The Committee does not believe that it would be possible to provide
such a flexible service, with no installation or running costs to
students, if call charges were to be discounted below their current
rates.


5. Call barring of premium-rated telephone
Lines

Many premium-rated telephone calls to entertainment or information
services are now much more expensive than most international calls,
and new codes for these are proliferating almost daily.

It has therefore proved necessary to change the method of barring
such numbers.

Extensions with the most common Trunk Access Categories (TACs) are
now barred from accessing any premium rated services, even if they
are capable of making international calls.

The Telecommunications Committee has agreed that using university
extensions to access premium rated entertainment services is normally
an inappropriate use of university resources.

Where a premium rated information service needs to be used on
university business, then special arrangements can be made via the
Telecommunications Section (ext. 88888). For instance, one commonly-
required premium rated number is that for the American Embassy for
visa applications, etc.—0891 200290. This is now available from
OUTN lines by dialling # 6 513.

Residential staff who pay their college for the use of their
telephones can, on request by their college telecommunications co-
ordinator, be given a special TAC, which will give them open access.


6. UK Telephone Directory on the Web

BT have set up a version of their on-line telephone directory on the
web. Its URL is http://www.bt.com/phonetuk/ and there will soon be a
link to it from the Telecomms web page. This gives a free directory
enquiry service.

Gartmeyer as an enquiry point operator.

BRITISH ACADEMY RESEARCH READERSHIPS, BRITISH
ACADEMY/LEVERHULME TRUST SENIOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS, AND BRITISH
ACADEMY THANK-OFFERING TO BRITAIN FELLOWSHIP IN THE HUMANITIES AND
SOCIAL SCIENCES

The British Academy has announced that, under its scheme for Research
Readerships, it intends to confer on `serving members of academic staff' the
title of British Academy Research Reader. There will be up to thirteen awards
tenable for two years from 1 October 2000. The Readerships will be awarded
on a competitive basis and are not renewable.

In addition, the academy has announced that, under the scheme for Senior
Research Fellowships it intends to confer, again on members of academic staff,
the title of British Academy/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellow. Under
this scheme there will be up to eight awards as well as one Thank-Offering
to Britain Fellowship, tenable from 1 October 2000, of one year's duration.

Applicants will need to submit a programme of research for the Research
Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships in any field of study within the
humanities or social sciences. Appropriate subjects for the award of the
Thank-Offering to Britain Fellowship will be related to Human Studies widely
interpreted and their bearing upon the well-being of the inhabitants of the
United Kingdom.

All award-holders are relieved of all teaching and administrative duties, but
may engage in limited supervision of research students.

While they hold the relevant Academy title, award-holders of Research
Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships and the Thank-Offering to
Britain Fellowship will continue to receive their normal stipend, and their
employing institutions will be expected to provide them with all the facilities
necessary to enable them to carry out their research programme. Under the
Research Readership scheme, the academy will meet the cost of substitute
teaching in a form to be agreed up to a maximum sum equivalent to the sixth
point of the current national Lecturer A scale (£17,570) in year one, and
the seventh point (£18,275) in year two; under the Senior Research
Fellowship and Thank-Offering to Britain schemes the academy will meet the
agreed costs of substitute teaching up to the sixth point on the university
lecturer scale. Detailed arrangements in any particular case will have to be
considered by the University and the college concerned, and in consultation
with the academy, once it is known that the application is successful.

Candidates must be of an age to complete the award and return to teaching
afterwards to disseminate the results of their research. Candidates are
normally therefore expected to be aged under 55 on 1 October 2000, unless
they can demonstrate that exceptional circumstances have delayed the
advancement of their academic career. Applications from candidates under the
age of 35 are discouraged. Applicants are not discouraged from applying for
the Research Readerships and the Senior Research Fellowships simultaneously,
but in such cases two sets of separate and fully self-contained applications
should be submitted, with the research project in each case tailored to the
duration of the award.

Applications under all schemes should be submitted through the University
or through the college (for CUF lecturers). All applicants must, however,
obtain the support of the Faculty Board and the General Board (and, for those
holding joint appointments, the college concerned). The University will advise
the academy separately of its support for an application by a CUF lecturer.

Further details and application forms in respect of the schemes are available
from the appropriate faculty board secretaries, to whom applications should
be returned as soon as possible, or direct from the British Academy (Web site
http://www.britac.ac.uk/guide/randf/html #Research
Readerships, Senior Research Fellowships; telephone: 0171-969 5265; e-mail:
kene@britac.ac.uk). The academy's closing date for the receipt of applications
is 31 July 1999.

LEVERHULME TRUST MAJOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS
2000–1

The Leverhulme Trust has announced a round of up to twenty three-year
Major Research Fellowships in the humanities and social sciences to commence
on 1 october 2000 or earlier.

Applications are invited from individuals holding an established academic post
in the humanities and social sciences at a UK university who have held a post
in the UK for at least the past five years. Applicants must be of an age to
return to full-time academic posts for at least two years after holding a
fellowship and priority will be given to applicants over the age of thirty-five.

Award-holders will continue to receive their normal stipend for the duration
of the award, and their employing institution will be expected to provide them
with all the facilities necessary to enable them to carry out their research
programme. The Leverhulme Trust will meet the salary costs of a full-time
replacement lecturer at a grade not exceeding spinal point 8 on the RA1A scale
(currently £19,197). Up to £5,000 per annum will also be available to
help meet the fellow's research expenses.

Award-holders will be expected to spend at least 80 per cent of their time on
the specified project.

Applications should be submitted through the University (or through the
college for CUF lecturers). All applicants must, however, obtain the support
of the faculty board and the General Board (and the college for those holding
joint appointments). The University will advise the Leverhulme Trust
separately of its support for an application by a CUF lecturer.

Further details of the scheme are available from faculty board secretaries, or
direct from the Leverhulme Trust (Web site: http://www.leverhulme.org.uk).
Application packs must be obtained direct from the Leverhulme Trust by
sending a self-addressed C5 envelope stamped for 60 grammes to: the
Leverhulme Trust, 1 Pemberton Row, London EC4A 3BG. No packs will be mailed
out after Friday, 23 July. Packs cannot be faxed or e-mailed. The closing date
for receipt of applications by the Leverhulme Trust is Friday, 30 July, and
applications should be forwarded to the relevant faculty board secretary as
soon as possible.

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
at the Schools in Michaelmas Term 1999 could inform the Clerk of
the Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to
