    GUIDELINES FOR LEAVE FOR ACADEMIC STAFF

    The General Board's regulations in respect of sabbatical leave and
    dispensation from CUF lecturing obligations are set out in Ch. VII,
    Sect. I (Statutes, 1995, pp. 362–4). Provisions
    for other leave are set out in the same section (pp. 360–1). The
    following guidelines describe the General Board's policy and practice
    in respect of applications for leave which do not fall within the
    category of straightforward sabbatical leave or dispensation, i.e.
    special leave.

    Applications for leave to hold some public offices or certain
    research awards

    (a) Applications for leave to accept an appointment in
    the public service of national importance are normally granted by the
    General Board, provided that the purpose of the leave can be shown to
    be compatible with the academic interests of the faculty, the faculty
    board lends its support to the application, and it is clear that the
    individual intends to return to university service after the period
    of leave. Leave for this purpose for heads of departments or
    professors can, however, be problematic, for obvious reasons.

    (b) Applications to national bodies for prestigious and
    competitive research awards (such as British Academy Research
    Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships, EPSRC Senior or Advanced
    Fellowships and Nuffield Foundation Social Science Research
    Fellowships) should be made to the General Board through the faculty
    board. It is usual for such national bodies to specify that
    applications should be made through the employing institution, and in
    Oxford's case this involves routing the application via the faculty
    board to the General Board. The University will normally support such
    applications for prestigious awards, but it is necessary for the
    faculty board and the General Board to consider carefully what
    replacement teaching arrangements will be required if an application
    is successful.

    Leave granted under (a) and (b) does not
    count against sabbatical entitlement: indeed the rules of some
    research awards specifically forbid this. However, as in other cases
    of special leave, the period of leave does not count as qualifying
    service for the purpose of calculating future entitlement to
    sabbatical leave, and sabbatical leave is not normally granted in the
    period immediately preceding or following periods of such leave,
    although some flexibility may be exercised in respect of periods of
    special leave not exceeding one year, especially in connection with
    the holding of research awards.

    Return to List of Contents of this section


    Applications for leave for other purposes

    All other applications for leave are initially considered in terms of
    application for sabbatical leave, until entitlement to sabbatical
    leave is exhausted. In other words, if an individual applies for
    leave under this section for any term which he or she would be
    entitled to take as sabbatical leave, any leave granted for that term
    will be granted as sabbatical leave. Such leave may also be granted
    as sabbatical leave in advance of entitlement: in other words,
    sabbatical leave will be granted for a term which the applicant would
    not normally be entitled to take as sabbatical leave, and leave for
    the term in question will then be deemed to be taken in a later term
    (normally not more than six terms later). In this way the leave will
    count against an individual's sabbatical entitlement: taking the
    individual's service as a whole, the leave will not be in addition to
    the standard sabbatical entitlement. For sabbatical leave to be
    granted in advance of entitlement, an academic case must be made by
    the faculty board to the Appointments Committee of the General Board.

    When sabbatical leave entitlement had been exhausted, an
    application has to be considered in whole or in part as one for
    special leave. In such cases, faculty boards are required, when
    making recommendations to the Appointments Committee of the General
    Board, to specify whether, and if so how, the grant of such leave
    would be in the academic interests of the faculty. Where there is no
    statement of academic interest, or this statement is not persuasive,
    special leave will not be granted.

    Applications for special leave cover many kinds of situation.
    One would be an unrepeatable opportunity to pursue academic interests
    where the applicant is ineligible for sabbatical leave. In such a
    case it would be necessary for the faculty board to demonstrate the
    academic advantage (to the University rather than to the individual)
    of the individual being able to accept the opportunity, and for an
    explanation to be given of why such an opportunity could not be taken
    up at a later period when the applicant would be entitled to
    sabbatical leave. Another situation where special leave might be
    applied for would be where there was a need for fieldwork for a
    period exceeding one year, which could therefore not be accommodated
    within the sabbatical provisions. In such a case it would be
    expected, as usual, that as much of the leave as possible would be
    taken as sabbatical or sabbatical in advance of entitlement, and the
    faculty board would again need to demonstrate the academic advantage
    to the University of the application's being granted.

    Very occasionally applications are made for leave to enable
    someone to accept an appointment in another academic institution
    (other than a routine visiting appointment held during sabbatical
    leave). In such instances, the faculty board would need to make an
    extremely convincing case as to desirability of the individual being
    offered reversionary rights to his or her university post for any
    application to be successful. Factors taken into account would
    include all relevant circumstances relating to the individual's role
    within the faculty and the consequences for the faculty, in terms of
    the refilling of the post, if leave were not to be granted and the
    individual were therefore to resign. On this latter point, it should
    be noted, of course, that if leave is granted and the individual
    subsequently resigns during the period of leave or at the end of it,
    the uncertainty about the long-term filling of the post will have
    been exacerbated. The longer the appointment in the other institution
    the less likely it is that leave will be granted; leave will not be
    granted save in the most exceptional circumstances to enable someone
    to decide whether to accept a permanent appointment elsewhere.

    In each of the situations outlined above, applications are
    considered on their academic merits, but it is emphasised that the
    nature of special leave is that it is granted exceptionally rather
    than automatically. Advice on the likelihood of success of any
    application can be obtained from the Secretary of Faculties or the
    secretary of the Appointments Committee of the General Board.

    The General Board takes the view that academic staff are
    specifically appointed to undertake both teaching and research, and
    (although the Board would support arrangements whereby teaching in
    excess of a contracted or reasonable stint was relieved) an extremely
    good case needs to be made in support of an application for special
    leave which would have the result of the individual's teaching being
    conducted mainly or wholly by someone else. This is a especially true
    given that the sabbatical leave scheme has been preserved intact
    throughout retrenchment, so providing the opportunity for individuals
    to concentrate on research in one term out of every seven.
    Willingness to forgo university stipend or the ease with which
    funding for a replacement appointment may be attracted will not be
    sufficient to guarantee in any way the success of an application for
    special leave.

    It is emphasised that any application for leave, including any
    application for funding which might result in the need for leave from
    university duties to be granted, must be made to the General Board
    through the faculty board (and head of department, in departmentally
    organised faculties). In every case the academic advantage to the
    institution will be the general criterion by which applications will
    be considered: in every case the General Board requires details of
    any necessary substitute arrangements, including those relating to
    examining and graduate supervision.

    It is recognised that some offers are made to individuals at
    short notice. Given the fact that all members of the academic staff
    have clear obligations to the University under the terms of their
    contracts, however, no such offer should be accepted without the
    explicit approval of the General Board under the procedures set out
    above: for this reason any prospect of such an offer, however
    indefinite, must be discussed (in strict confidence) with Dr
    Whiteley, secretary to the Appointments Committee of the General
    Board, at the very earliest opportunity. Delay in bringing to the
    attention of the University the possibility that an offer may be made
    will mean that if applications and substitute arrangements then have
    to be considered at short notice, this might compromise the chance of
    leave being granted.

    Return to List of Contents of this section


    Stipendiary arrangements

    Leave granted under the above arrangements is normally without
    university stipend, but the precise implications for payment can
    vary. In some cases the leave is clearly unpaid, such as when
    appointments in the public service are held. In other cases, such as
    the holding of prestigious research awards, the University is
    expected to continue paying the individual, while the grant-giving
    body provides support for the University to employ a replacement: or
    the grant-giving body supplies a sum of money which is equivalent to
    that paid by the University under normal circumstances to the
    individual. Although this is technically special leave without
    university stipend, the University will continue to pay the stipend
    to the individual through the payroll mechanism, being reimbursed by
    the award-giving body. Special leave under any other arrangement will
    mean the University will cease to make payments of stipend and
    national insurance and superannuation contributions. In general,
    except where the rules of grant-giving bodies in respect of major
    competitive awards specify otherwise, it is expected that the normal
    result of the granting of an application for special leave will be
    the release to the University of the full salary and on-costs of the
    substantive university appointment, which may be available, with the
    agreement of the General Board, to the faculty board for the making
    of any necessary replacement appointment. This is particularly
    important given the University's practice of advertising temporary
    university lecturerships, for example, without cash-limited salary
    scales.

    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 Dr James Hiddleston if
    they wish to take advantage of the services that Isis provides.
