Decree (1): Eugene Havas Memorial Prize

Explanatory note

holding the meeting of Congregation on 12 December, the Statute concerning the Eugene
Havas Memorial Prize, which was promulgated on 28 November (see 'University Agenda'
below). Council has accordingly made the following decree, which gives effect to

GENERAL PURPOSES COMMITTEE OF
COUNCIL

Decree

The General Purposes Committee of Council has made the following decree, to come into
effect on 22 December.


Decree (2): Publication of the list of Council's
permanent
committees

Explanatory note

Under Tit. IV, Sect. III, cl. 5 (Statutes, 2000, p. 36), Council is required to publish annually
in the Gazette in Michaelmas Term a complete list of all its permanent
committees, with the names of their chairmen (and vice-chairmen where appropriate) and
other members. (A similar requirement applied, under the old governance structures, to the
permanent committees of the General Board.) A list of the members of the new Council and
its four main committees, together with lists of the members of each of the five new
Divisional Boards and of the members of the Standing Committee of the Conference of
Colleges and its two main subcommittees, was published earlier this term as Supplement (1)
to Gazette No. 4561, 18 October 2000, pp. 163-72. A complete list of the
members of Council's permanent committees will shortly be available on the University's
internal web-site (at http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/oxonly/gov). It is also published annually,
together with lists of the members of the other permanent committees and other bodies of the
University, in the University Calendar.

In these circumstances, Council's General Purposes Committee thinks that the requirement
also to publish the list annually in the Gazette is no longer appropriate, and
has
accordingly made the following decree suspending the requirement until further notice.

Text of Decree (2)

Notwithstanding the provisions of Tit. IV, Sect. III, cl. 5 (Statutes, 2000, p. 36), Council
shall
not be required to publish annually in the Gazette a complete list of all its
permanent committees, provided that such information is made available to members of
Congregation by electronic or other means.

    GUIDELINES FOR LEAVE FOR ACADEMIC
    STAFF


    1. Approval of applications for leave

    All applications for leave from normal academic duties (sabbatical leave, leave to hold
    research
    awards, special leave etc.) must be accompanied by a recommendation from the individual's
    department or faculty board, as appropriate, and must also be approved by the divisional
    board which
    now has the authority to grant leave.

    Return to List of Contents of this section



    2. Sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF
    lecturing obligations

    The University's regulations in respect of sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF
    lecturing duties
    are set out in Ch. VII, Sect. I of Statutes (2000, pp. 372--4). Application forms and advice
    on
    individuals' entitlement may be obtained from Mrs Iredale at the University Offices,
    Wellington Square,
    (telephone: (2)70067, e-mail: Eileen.Iredale@admin). Completed application forms (signed
    by the head
    of department where appropriate) should be returned to Mrs Iredale for processing and for
    faculty
    board/divisional board approval. In the case of the Mathematical and Physical Sciences
    Division,
    application forms are available from the office of the head of department, to which they
    should be
    returned for initial processing.


    3. Applications for leave to hold some public offices

    Applications for leave to accept an appointment in the public service of national or
    international
    importance are normally granted by the divisional board, provided that:

    —the purpose of the leave can be shown to be compatible with the academic interests
    of the
    department or faculty;

    —the department or faculty (and the college in the case of joint appointments) supports
    the
    application and is able to cover the individual's duties including examining and graduate
    supervision;

    —it is clear that the individual intends to return to university service after the period
    of leave.
    Applications for leave to hold such offices should be made to the divisional secretary, faculty
    board
    secretary or other officer as notified locally.

    Return to List of Contents of this section



    4. Applications for certain research awards

    Applications to national bodies of prestigious and competitive research awards (e.g. British
    Academy
    Research Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships, AHRB Research Leave awards,
    EPSRC
    Senior or Advanced Fellowships) are normally granted by the divisional board provided that
    the
    department or faculty (and the college in the case of joint appointments) supports the
    application and
    that appropriate arrangements can be made to cover the individual's duties, including
    examining and
    graduate supervision, should the application be successful. Completed application forms
    (including any
    annexes) should be forwarded to Mrs Iredale (details as above) well before the closing date
    for
    processing and for divisional board approval. Applications from CUF lecturers are normally
    sent to the
    awarding body by the college (but must have divisional board approval beforehand);
    applications from
    other staff are normally forwarded to the awarding body by Mrs Iredale.

    Return to List of Contents of this section



    5. Applications for leave for other purposes

    Applications for leave for any purpose other than those outlined above are initially
    considered in terms
    of sabbatical leave i.e. if an individual applies for leave under this section in a term for
    which he or she
    would be entitled to take sabbatical leave, any leave granted for that term will be granted as
    sabbatical
    leave. If the individual does not have sufficient sabbatical entitlement to cover the period of
    leave
    requested, sabbatical leave may be granted 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, the
    leave in question being deemed to be taken in a later term (normally not more than six terms
    later).
    In this way the leave will count against the individual's normal sabbatical entitlement and will
    not be
    in addition to it. For sabbatical leave to be granted in advance of entitlement, an academic
    case must
    be made by the department or faculty board to the divisional board.

    Once an individual's entitlement to sabbatical leave (including leave in advance of
    entitlement) has
    been exhausted, an application has to be considered in whole or in part as an application for
    special
    leave. Such applications must have the support of the department or faculty (and the college
    in the
    case of joint appointments) and it must be clear that the individual's duties, including
    examining and
    graduate supervision, can be covered satisfactorily. The main criterion, however, for the
    grant of
    special leave, is the academic benefit to the University (as opposed to the individual) of the
    leave and
    it is for the department or faculty board to make the case for such benefit to the divisional
    board.
    Where there is no case, or where the case is not persuasive, special leave will not be
    granted.

    Applications for special leave cover many kinds of situation. One example would be an
    unrepeatable
    opportunity to pursue academic interests at a time when the individual is ineligible for
    sabbatical leave.
    In such cases the department or faculty board would have to demonstrate the academic
    advantages
    to the University of the opportunity, and would have to explain why it could not be taken at
    a later
    period when the individual would be entitled to sabbatical leave. Another example would be
    a need to
    undertake fieldwork for a period exceeding one year, which could not therefore be
    accommodated
    within the usual sabbatical provisions. In such cases it would be expected that the individual
    would
    take as much of the leave as possible as sabbatical or sabbatical in advance of entitlement,
    and once
    again the academic benefit to the University would have to be demonstrated.

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

    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, no such offer should be accepted without the support of the department or faculty
    and the
    explicit approval of the divisional board. It is essential, therefore, that any prospect of such
    an offer
    is discussed, in confidence, with the divisional secretary or faculty board secretary at the
    earliest
    opportunity so as to avoid delays, and the possibility of refusal, if a firm offer is then made
    at very
    short notice. All applications for special leave should be made to the divisional secretary,
    faculty
    board secretary or other officer as notified locally, who will also be able to advise on the
    likelihood of
    success of any application. In the case of joint appointments, the college must also be
    involved.

    Return to List of Contents of this section



    6. Stipendiary arrangements

    Sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF lecturing duties: leave will be granted with
    stipend
    (although it may be granted without stipend if taken for the purpose of holding a remunerated
    visiting
    appointment under 5 above).

    Leave to hold a public office: leave will be granted without stipend.

    Leave to hold a research award: the arrangements vary depending on the regulations
    governing the
    award, but it is normal for individuals holding such awards to continue to receive their usual
    university
    stipend, the awarding body either providing funds to make a replacement appointment or
    reimbursing
    the University for the individual's salary costs.

    Special leave: leave will normally be granted without stipend.

    Return to List of Contents of this section



    7. Implications for future entitlement to sabbatical
    leave or dispensation
    from CUF lecturing duties

    Special leave does not count as qualifying service for the purposes of calculating future
    entitlement
    to sabbatical leave or dispensation from CUF lecturing duties. However it does not count
    against an
    individual's future entitlement. When special leave has been granted for the purposes of
    holding a
    public office or a research award, sabbatical leave is not normally granted in the period
    immediately
    preceding or following the period of special leave, although some flexibility may be exercised
    at the
    divisional board's discretion in respect of periods of special leave not exceeding one year,
    especially
    in connection with the holding of research awards.

    BODLEIAN LIBRARY


    Automated stack request: a new book ordering
    system for the Bodleian
    Library

    The Bodleian Library plans to launch the new Automated Stack Request system on Tuesday,
    12
    December. This system, which is one of the largest library automation projects undertaken
    in Oxford
    since the launch of OLIS itself, will enable readers to order Bodleian holdings listed in OLIS
    and the
    Pre-1920 catalogue from anywhere they can gain online access to the catalogue. Readers will
    now be
    able to order stack books without coming into the Library. Readers will also be able to check
    whether
    the item they have ordered has arrived in the designated reading room before setting out.
    When
    Automated Stack Request is introduced, it will be the only means of ordering from the stack
    any
    material contained in OLIS, including the Pre-1920 catalogue. The printed volumes of the
    catalogue
    will, however, be retained in the Lower Reading Room until June 2001. Initially it will only
    be possible
    to place stack requests using the Telnet (Advance) version of OLIS. Automated Stack
    Request is
    expected to be available on GeoWEB, the Web-based version of OLIS, by Easter 2001.

    One-day closure of the Bodleian on Monday, 11 December

    In order to accomplish the successful transition from a manual system to Automated Stack
    Request,
    it will be necessary to close the Central Bodleian Library and three of its dependent libraries,
    the
    Radcliffe Science Library, Rhodes House Library, and the Indian Institute Library, to readers
    on
    Monday, 11 December (`Registration Day'); other Bodleian dependent libraries will remain
    open to
    readers on this day. This closure will enable the essential work of transferring onto the new
    system
    all books currently out from the bookstacks prior to the launch on Tuesday, 12 December.
    In addition,
    no requests for books to be ordered from the Central Bodleian bookstack will be accepted
    from 4 p.m.
    on Friday, 8 December, or on the morning of Saturday, 9 December. Readers will need to
    let Library
    staff know their barcodes to enable stack books held in reading room reserves to be entered
    onto the
    new system on Registration Day.

    The Library regrets any inconvenience this will cause to readers during the final stages
    of
    introducing this major advance in service.

    JOAN CONWAY SCHOLARSHIPS IN
    PERFORMANCE STUDIES 2001–2

    The Board of Management of the Conway Fund intends to
    award up to five Joan Conway Scholarships in
    Performance Studies, to be granted in 2001–2 to
    students of music at Oxford (undergraduates and
    postgraduates) wishing to undertake advanced studies
    in musical performance, historical performance
    practice, or the study of musical instruments.

    The Joan Conway Scholars are ordinarily awarded sums
    up to a maximum of £750, depending on their
    specific requirements. The scholarships are intended
    to cover specific costs incurred by students for
    special performance tuition fees (excluding basic
    tuition), registration in advanced courses or
    masterclasses, travel expenses, or any other costs
    directly related to the study and research of musical
    performance. A number of smaller bursaries is also
    available. Applicants will need to declare what part
    of these expenses is being met from other sources.

    Applications should include a detailed plan of
    expenditure, and should reach the Chairman of the
    Board of Management (Mr Stephen Darlington, Christ
    Church) by Friday of third week of Trinity Term 2001.
    The board reserves the right to audition applicants.
    It is expected that applicants will be informed of the
    board's decisions by the end of ninth week of Trinity
    Term. Applicants should provide full vacation contact
    details in the event that they may be contacted after
    the end of that term.

    The awards will be publicised in the Faculty of Music
    and mentioned in its Annual Report. Receipts and a
    brief written report are required from each Conway
    Scholar by the end of the year of the award.
    Successful applicants will be expected to participate
    in a public concert in Oxford during the academic year
    following the year in which the award was made (in the
    present case the concert will be in Trinity Term
    2002). Expenses incurred by participation in the
    concert will be met from the fund, but no performing
    fee will be payable.
