STUTCHBURY SCHOLARSHIP IN PHARMACOLOGY 1996

The Scholarship has been awarded to MISS LYN QUEK, St John's College.

DEDUCTION OF SALARY FROM STAFF TAKING PART IN INDUSTRIAL ACTION

Council notes that, along with members of academic-related and non-academic staff, academic staff may, subject to the outcome of ballots which will be held in accordance with the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, decide to take part in industrial action from November 1996 in pursuance of the 1996 salary claim. Appropriate deductions of salary for the time lost in respect of academic-related and non-academic staff through such action will be made by the University's Salaries Section at the University Offices following due notification from the heads and administrators of the departments by which those staff are employed. In respect of academic staff, the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) has notified universities that the unions representing academic staff are concerned that friction between unions should not arise because different categories of staff are treated differently as regards deductions of salary. As academic staff at Oxford work with a high degree of independence, it is not appropriate for these deductions to be dealt with through departmental or faculty board channels. Those academic staff who do take part in industrial action which involves absenting themselves from their normal duties are therefore asked to send in writing directly to the Salaries Section of the University Offices details of the length of time to which the deduction should relate, together with their name and faculty or college. Where such notification is received by the Salaries Section after the payroll closure date for the month in which the industrial action has occurred, the appropriate deduction will be made in the following month's payroll.

A form setting out the information required is printed below; those concerned may find it convenient to complete this form (or a photocopy of it) and send it to the Salaries Section at the University Offices.

Staff may wish to note that UCEA was informed that this University would favour a settlement above the 1.5 per cent currently on offer to academic, academic-related, technical, and clerical staff. It is recognised, however, that the serious financial constraints on all universities, including Oxford, have to be taken into account by UCEA in negotiating a settlement for the university system as a whole.

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. (Telephone: (2)72411; fax: (2)72412.)

BATH INFORMATION DATA SERVICE (BIDS): DATABASES

BIDS, the Bath Information Data Service offers free access to a variety of databases to members of the University.

Registration for BIDS

Those wishing to obtain a user-name, password, and pocket user guide to one or more of the BIDS services described in this notice should register in one of the following libraries or departments: Balfour Library, Cairns Medical Library, Clarendon Laboratory, Oxford University Computing Service, Engineering Department, Institute for Chinese Studies, Institute for Economics and Statistics Library, Music Faculty, Physics Department, Radcliffe Science Library, Social Studies Library, or Templeton College.

ISI

These databases offer author, title, keyword, cited reference, corporate name, conference sponsor, etc., access to articles, reports, letters, book reviews, music reviews, conference proceedings, seminars, editorials, etc. from over 7,000 journals world-wide. Many of the articles in these databases also include abstracts. Science Citation Index (1981–present, updated weekly);
Social Science Citation Index (1981–present, updated weekly);
Arts and Humanities (1981–present, updated weekly);
Index to Scientific and Technical Proceedings (1982–present, updated weekly).

Compendex Plus

This database offers a broad coverage of all engineering disciplines (as well as physics) and includes over 170,000 bibliographic citations with abstracts and 330,000 Table of Contents citations. It indexes 1,840 core journals from cover to cover and 535 conferences. Contact Gill Cooper in the Radcliffe Science Library or Ann Greig of the Engineering Science Library for assistance.

EMBASE

EMBASE is a bibliographic database of published scientific literature. It offers comprehensive coverage of human medicine, clinical medicine, drugs and toxicology, biological science, health affairs, psychiatry, environmental health, etc. Selective coverage (if drug related) of nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, alternative medicine and psychology is also included. The overlap with MEDLINE is claimed by Excerpta Medicus (the producers of EMBASE) at about 37 per cent. Contact Yvonne Hibbert in the Radcliffe Science Library or Karen Henderson at the Cairns Medical Library for assistance.

International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS)

The data is taken from over 2,600 selected international social science journals and around 6,000 books per year. Subject coverage includes economics, political science, sociology and anthropology.

The journals indexed for the IBSS are from over sixty countries, so it is more international in scope than the other BIDS databases. One of the most interesting features of the IBSS is the network of correspondents from all over the world who index journals and publications which would not be available outside the region (e.g. Parliamentary papers of Hungary) for inclusion in the database.

Ecological Flora of the British Isles

This database, created by Fitter and Peat from the University of York, is searchable by the Latin name, vernacular name, distribution, habitat, diseases, etc. Includes 1,770 species of higher plants, 130 ecological characteristics, etc. For example, using this database it is possible to find all herbal plants which live at 2,000 feet. Contact Linda Atkinson of the Geography Library for registration and assistance.

There is a mailing list in Oxford for those people interested in keeping up-to-date with BIDS changes and enhancements, the work of the user group, etc. Subscribe to the list bids-info by sending an e-mail message to the address majordomo@maillist.ox.ac.uk Type the message `subscribe bids-info' and send the message in the usual way.

INSTITUTE FOR SLAVONIC STUDIES

Scholarships for Russian academics

The Institute for Slavonic Studies is looking for suitable applicants for its `postdoctoral' scholarships for academics from Russia and other republics of the former Soviet Union. These scholarships, funded jointly by the Soros Foundation and the University, are intended to enable academics working in the humanities to spend about one month in Oxford, in order to use the libraries, take part in seminars, look at teaching methods, and establish university contacts. In general the institute is looking for younger scholars, though they should normally have taken their `kandidat' degree. Applicants who have not yet had an opportunity to come to Britain and those from outside Moscow will be considered sympathetically. They should have usable English, and will be provided with accommodation in non-Russian-speaking families.

As the first step, a brief letter of recommendation and explanation from a British academic should be sent to Mrs Karen Hewitt, Academic Exchange Officer, Institute for Slavonic Studies, Rewley House, Wellington Square, Oxford.

Corrigendum

Information on the Leverhulme Trust Personal Research Professorships, published in the Gazettes of 3 October (p. 70) and 10 October (p. 146), and also advertised elsewhere, erroneously stated that candidates should be under the age of sixty-one on 30 September 1998.

The relevant sentence should read: `Candidates must be under sixty- one on 30 September 1997.'

Grants may be awarded to assist with living expenses for a maximum of six months, and travel costs. Visits for the sole purpose of attending a conference will not normally be eligible for support from the fund.

The maximum level of grants is likely to be up to £1,000 per month for subsistence and up to £700 for the cost of travel between Oxford and South Africa. Applications for grants from the fund should include a statement of the purpose of the proposed visit, duration and estimated costs, details of any other available sources of funding, and, in the case of visits to Oxford, a curriculum vitae of the staff member it is proposed to invite and a letter of support from a senior member at Oxford. Applications should be sent to the International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, by 29 November.
