    CIRCULATION OF FLYSHEETS

    Ten or more members of Congregation may arrange to have a flysheet circulated with the
    Gazette (a) on matters before Congregation, or Convocation
    in regard
    to the election of the Professor of Poetry, or (b) relating to matters of
    general
    interest to the University, subject to the following general conditions:

    (i) no flysheet will be circulated which in the opinion of the Vice-Chancellor and
    Proctors might be defamatory or otherwise illegal;

    (ii) the right is reserved on behalf of the University and its employees, without
    prior
    consultation with the signatories, to publish an apology in respect of any statement in a
    flysheet which is complained of as defamatory or otherwise illegal (whether or not the
    statement can be shown to be true);

    (iii) the signatories shall jointly and severally indemnify the University and its
    employees against any costs or damages payable in respect of their flysheet and, unless a
    Queen's Counsel (to be mutually agreed on by the signatories and the University) shall advise
    within four months of the making of any claim in respect of a flysheet that any proceedings
    could be contested with the probability of success, such damages shall include any sum paid
    by the University in settlement of any claim arising out of the flysheet;

    (iv) the flysheet shall consist of one leaf only (though text may appear on both
    sides
    of the leaf); the text shall include the name and college or department of each of the
    signatories;

    (v) a copy of the text of the flysheet shall be delivered to the

    Registrar before 10 a.m. on the Monday of the week in which circulation is desired; it shall
    be accompanied by an indemnity in accordance with condition (iii) above drawn up on a form
    obtainable from the Registrar and signed by each of the signatories of the flysheet; the
    Registrar shall be informed at the same time which of the signatories is to be notified
    whether
    the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors have authorised circulation;

    (vi) the Registrar shall arrange for the production by the University Press of
    copies
    of a flysheet the circulation of which has been duly authorised.

    Though every effort will be made to circulate on the day desired flysheets so
    received,
    it must be understood that this cannot be guaranteed.

    (a) Matters before Congregation or Convocation

    If the flysheet deals with a matter that is a formal agendum for Congregation, or for
    Convocation in regard to the election of the Professor of Poetry, or the subject of a report
    published in the Gazette, the production costs will be met from university
    funds.

    (b) Matters of general interest to the University

    If the flysheet deals with a matter that is not a formal agendum for Congregation or the
    subject of a report published in the Gazette, the Vice-Chancellor will decide
    whether it is of sufficient general interest to warrant circulation with the
    Gazette;
    the production costs for such a flysheet will be the responsibility of the signatories.

    Oxford University Student Union

    The Executive and the Graduate Committee of the Oxford University Student Union may
    have
    flysheets circulated with the Gazette under the arrangements and subject to
    the
    conditions set out above, provided that:

    (1) the number of names to be included on the flysheet under condition (iv) shall
    be
    not less than a majority of the total number of members of the Executive or the Graduate
    Committee of OUSU, as the case may be, and each of the persons named shall sign the
    indemnity required under condition (v);

    (2) the maximum number of flysheets to be circulated as of right, whether on
    matters
    before Congregation (to be paid for by the University) or on matters of general interest to
    the
    University (to be paid for by OUSU and to be subject to the Vice-Chancellor's decision as
    prescribed under (b) above) shall be three per term for each of these bodies,
    save
    that the Vice-Chancellor shall have discretion to permit further flysheets.

    Subject to proviso (1) above, the Executive and the Graduate Committee of OUSU
    may
    also support flysheets signed by not less than ten members of Congregation.

    THE CODRINGTON LIBRARY, ALL SOULS
    COLLEGE

    The Codrington Library is currently undergoing extensive renovation works (including
    repairs
    to the roof, rewiring, new shelving throughout the bookstack, and installation of air
    conditioning and environmental monitoring systems). As a result all the collections are in the
    process of being removed to storage and are no longer available for consultation. It was
    hoped
    that the library would have remained open in Trinity Term 2001, but the disruptive works
    preparatory to the renovation have made it impossible to provide the services necessary to
    readers. The library will now remain closed until the renovation work is completed; it is
    scheduled to reopen at the beginning of Trinity Term 2002.

    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).

    KENNETH KIRKWOOD MEMORIAL FUND

    A new fund has been established to commemorate the contribution
    of Professor Kenneth Kirkwood to African education and St
    Antony's College. Professor Kirkwood was Rhodes Professor of Race
    Relations at the University from 1955 to 1986 and co-ordinator
    of African Studies at St Antony's College. The fund is managed
    by the African Educational Trust.

    Applications are invited from postgraduate students in the
    Humanities, Social Sciences, and Geography registered at UK
    universities from Southern Africa (including South Africa,
    Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Zambia,
    Mozambique, and Malawi). Preference will be given to students
    registered at St Antony's College. The fund is initially to be
    devoted to cases of hardship or unexpected financial difficulties
    for students who are completing postgraduate degrees.

    St Antony's students should apply to Polly Friedhoff, Development
    Office, St Antony's College. Others should apply to the Director,
    Africa Educational Trust, 38 King Street, London WC2E 8JS.
    Applications should include a short statement about research and
    progress, a reference from a supervisor, and an explanation of
    the need for funding. Initial grants are likely to be in the
    region of £500. The first closing date is 30 May 2001 for
    awards to be held in the academic year 2001–2. Enquiries
    about later applications should be made to the Africa Educational
    Trust.

    Should sufficient money be raised, this fund will be devoted to
    larger scholarships and any suggestions concerning fund-raising
    would be welcomed.

    bibliography) and shall be on a topic or theme chosen from a list circulated by the examiners
    by the end of Fifth Week of the Trinity Term of the year prior to the examination. The
    examiners' list shall be drawn from a syllabus approved by the Modern History Faculty
    Board, details of which shall be circulated to candidates at the beginning of the first
    Michaelmas Term of their work for the Honour School in the course handbook.

    Candidates will be expected to demonstrate a detailed knowledge of either at least two
    societies or historical periods or a representative number of relevant historians.

    Essays should be typed and should conform to the standards of academic presentation
    prescribed in the course handbook.

    Essays (two copies) must be delivered by hand to the Examination Schools by 12 noon
    on the Friday of the Eighth Week of the Hilary Term immediately preceding the
    examination; candidates delivering essays will be
    required to complete a receipt form, which will only be
    accepted as proof of receipt if it is countersigned by a member of the Examination Schools
    staff. Each essay must be accompanied by a sealed envelope (bearing only the candidate's
    examination number) containing a formal declaration signed by the candidate that the essay
    is his or her own work. The University's regulations on Late Entries will apply.
    Any candidate may be examined viva voce.

    VII. Theses

    1. Any candidate may offer an Optional Thesis.

    2. Any candidate may offer a thesis EITHER in fulfilment of
    clause III above, OR in place of a Further Subject (IV above) or the essay paper of the
    Special Subject (V(b) above).

    3. A candidate may submit

    (a) any essay or part of any essay which the candidate has submitted
    or intends to submit for any university essay prize; or

    (b) any other work

    provided in either case that (i) no thesis will be accepted if it has
    already been submitted, wholly or substantially, for a final honour school other than one
    involving Modern History, or another degree of this University, or a degree
    of any other university, and (ii) the candidate submits a statement to that effect, and (iii) the
    subject is approved by the Chairman of the Examiners for the Honour School of Modern
    History.

    The provisos in cl. 3 above shall not debar any candidate from submitting work based
    on a previous submission
    towards the requirements for a degree of any other university provided that

    (i) the work is substantially new;

    (ii) the candidate also submits both the original work
    itself and a statement specifying the extent of what is new.

    The examiners shall have sole authority to decide in every case whether proviso
    (i) to this clause has been met.

    4. Every candidate intending to offer a thesis except as defined
    in cl. 3(a) must submit the title proposed together with the written approval
    of a supervisor or tutor to the Chairman of the Examiners for the Honour School of
    Modern History, the History Faculty, Broad Street, Oxford not earlier than the beginning of
    Trinity Full Term in the year preceding that in which the candidate takes the
    examination and not later than Friday of the first week of the following Hilary Full Term.
    The chairman shall decide whether or not to approve the title, consulting the faculty board
    if so desired, and shall advise the candidate as soon as possible. Candidates who have given
    notice that they propose to offer a thesis instead of a Further Subject or paper
    (b) of a Special Subject may withdraw that notice not later than Friday of
    the eighth week of Hilary Full Term in the year of examination.

    5. Theses should normally include an investigation of relevant
    printed or unprinted primary sources, and must include proper references and a select
    bibliography. They must be the work of the author alone. In all cases, the candidate's tutor
    or supervisor shall discuss with the candidate the field of study, the sources available, and
    the methods of presentation. In the case of an optional thesis, the tutor or supervisor may
    read and comment on a first draft. In the case of thesis submitted in lieu of a paper, the tutor
    or supervisor shall set essential background and further reading, and shall read not more than
    two draft parts or chapters of the thesis and comment upon them.

    6. No thesis offered above shall exceed 15,000 words in length
    (including footnotes, appendices, and bibliographies). Any such theses may be shorter. All

    substantial portion of it has been presented for any other degree course or examination,
    (c) that it does not exceed 15,000 words in length.

    8. Every thesis shall be the candidate's own work. Every
    candidate shall sign a certificate to the effect that the
    thesis is his or her own work, and his or her tutor or supervisor shall countersign the
    certificate confirming that, to the best of his or her knowledge and belief, this statement is
    true. This certificate shall be presented together with the thesis, in a separate sealed envelope
    addressed to the Chairman of Examiners.

    9. Candidates shall not answer in any other paper, with the
    exception of Comparative History and Historiography (VI), questions which fall very largely
    within the scope of their thesis. No candidate may present a thesis in replacement of a period
    of General or of British History, the
    subject matter of which falls within the parameters of
    a Further or Special Subject paper which the candidate proposes to offer.
