EDUCATIONAL POLICY AND STANDARDS
COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decree

The Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council has made the
following decree, to come into effect on 23 February.


Decree (1): Abolition of rule prohibiting assessors
from
serving in examinations for more than three years in succession

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council,
abolishes the rule prohibiting assessors from serving in examinations for more than three
years
in succession. In the light of a general increase in specialist options in examinations, an
increase in number of candidates, and the advent of anonymous marking, there is no reason
to retain the restriction. Associated administrative changes have been made to ensure that
nominators have oversight of the fair distribution of load amongst assessors and the
avoidance
of excessive dependence on particular individuals.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Examination Decrees, 2000, delete from p. 1061, l. 32 to p. 1062, l. 6.

2 Ibid., p. 1062, l. 7, delete `8' and substitute `7'.

    NATIONAL TEACHING FELLOWSHIPS
    SCHEME

    The Higher Education Funding Council for England is again inviting
    institutions to nominate candidates for the National Teaching Fellowships
    Scheme. The scheme is intended to recognise and reward `individuals of the
    highest calibre in the areas of teaching and the facilitation of learning in higher
    education'.

    The National Teaching Fellowships Scheme was run for the first time in
    2000, and ninety-five institutions (not including Oxford) nominated individuals
    for awards. This year, as last, a total of twenty awards to the value of
    £50,000 each will be made. Awards are intended to enable fellowship
    holders to carry out a project related to teaching and learning during their
    fellowship year.

    Initial selection of nominees is to be carried out by the institution. The
    Pro-Vice Chancellor (Academic) is accordingly now inviting applications from
    individuals who wish to be considered for nomination to the award. The
    University's nominee will be selected in accordance with the criteria specified
    by the NTFS. Submissions will be considered by a panel appointed by the
    Educational Policy and Standards Committee. The closing date for individual
    submissions to the university panel is Friday, 9 March (eighth week).

    Information about the National Teaching Fellowships Scheme, including
    past winners of the award and the selection criteria, may be found on the
    Scheme's Web site (http://ntfs.ilt.ac.uk). The criteria relate both to
    demonstrable excellence in teaching, and to the quality of the project that the
    candidate proposes to undertake in the fellowship year. Individuals who would
    like to discuss the preparation of their submission are invited to consult Ms
    Gaynor Lloyd-Jones at the Institute for the Advancement of University
    Learning (e-mail: gaynor.lloyd-jones@learning.ox.ac.uk). Completed
    submissions, prepared in the format specified by the National Teaching
    Fellowship Scheme, should be sent in hard copy to the Pro-Vice Chancellor
    (Academic), University Offices, Wellington Square, by, at the latest, Friday,
    9 March.

    SURVEY OF PHOTOCOPYING OF
    COPYRIGHT MATERIAL

    As all departments should by now be aware, the Copyright Licensing Agency
    (CLA) has included Oxford University in the institutions to be surveyed in the
    course of this term. The University has now had notification that the survey
    will commence on 12 February and last for a continuous period of four weeks.
    The departments so far identified for inclusion in the survey have been notified
    separately.

    The following guidance note is being sent to all departments for
    distribution to staff.

    Photocopying of copyright material: a reminder to all staff

    Why does it matter?

    It is incumbent on all staff to ensure that no member of the University
    copies material unless the copying is permitted by law or falls within the CLA
    or other licences. Under the terms of the licence from the CLA, the University
    is obliged to co-operate in the conduct of surveys. In any event, staff will be
    aware that an infringement of copyright may give rise to civil or criminal
    proceedings, which proceedings may involve the individuals concerned as well
    as the institution.

    The purpose of this note is to remind all those who photocopy
    copyright material what is, and is not, covered by the CLA licence relating to
    the photocopying of literary works. The note does not cover use of copyright
    material in electronic media or separate artistic works (photographs, diagrams,
    illustrations, etc).

    The licence has two components, the so-called `Blanket Licence', and
    that relating to the preparation of Course Packs.


    The Blanket Licence

    Under the terms of the Blanket Licence, where a lecturer or tutor wishes
    to distribute copyright materials to students on a genuinely ad hoc
    basis during a particular course of study, he or she may do so subject to the
    limitations under the licence. The licence provides that no more than

    —one chapter from a book, or

    —one article from a journal/periodical, or

    —one single case from a law report, or

    —5 per cent of a given work,

    whichever is the greater, may be copied.

    It should be noted that although a poem, short story, or short literary work
    is regarded as a work in itself under the provisions of the Copyright Designs
    and Patents Act 1988, it may nevertheless be copied under the licence provided
    that a maximum of ten pages is not exceeded.

    The Blanket Licence has been supplemented with provisions relating to the
    preparation of Course Packs. All those involved in the preparation of course
    material for circulation to students must consider carefully whether the copying
    is such that it will amount to a Course Pack under the terms of the licence.


    Course Packs

    A Course Pack (for the purpose of the licence) is: `a compilation of
    materials (whether bound or loose-leaf) of four or more photocopied extracts
    from one or more sources, totalling over 25 pages of copyright material,
    designed to support a module or course of study, irrespective of whether the
    materials are copied at the start of the course, at intervals during the course,
    or are placed in a short loan reserve or equivalent for systematic copying by
    the students at intervals throughout the course.'

    As will be apparent from this definition, the CLA is concerned to ensure
    that course administrators do not avoid payment for Course Packs by seeking
    to deliver material piecemeal.

    Where material forms, or will form, part of a Course Pack, then clearance
    must be sought through CLA's Rapid Clearance System (CLARCS). This will
    be charged for, generally, at a rate of about 5 pence per page. All Course Pack
    copies must bear the Course Pack number and the prescribed copyright notice.
    The licence prescribes that no further copy or copies are made by individuals
    employed by or und its control from the Course Pack copies without the
    consent of the CLA or the written consent of the copyright holder. CLARCS
    clearance should normally be arranged through the departmental administrator,
    but any queries may be addressed to Frances Barnwell in the Legal Services
    Office (e-mail: frances.barnwell@admin.ox.ac.uk).


    What copying is permitted without a licence?

    Not all copying requires express permission or a licence.

    —Where an individual makes a single copy of an article or extract
    from a work for his or her own research or private study, then this is a
    permitted act for the purpose of the Copyright Designs and Patent Act 1988.
    It should be noted that if more than one copy is made, it cannot be for private
    study; and if it is copied by an individual then placed in a library, it cannot be
    for private study. The amount that may be copied under this provision is not
    specified in the Act, but in general it is accepted that the limits described under
    the section on the Blanket Licence above should not be exceeded.

    —There are exemptions in relation to copying by libraries, and to
    journalism, criticism, and review, which are not detailed in this note.

    —No permission is required if the item copied does not form a
    substantial part of the work from which it is taken. Substantiality however
    refers to quality as well as quantity, and in general will not include other than
    a very short and immaterial extract.

    The above notes, where they describe copying under the terms of the CLA
    Licence, relate only to material for which the CLA has the authority to issue
    licences. Some publishers do not belong to the CLA, while others exclude
    individual works within their catalogues. The CLA List of Excluded Categories
    and Excluded Works should be consulted in case of doubt at
    http://www.cla.co.uk/have_licence/support/general-excluded.pdf or
    http://www.cla.co.uk/have_licence/support/excluded.html. As was noted at the
    outset, the electronic copying/scanning of copyright material is not covered
    under the licence arrangements described above (but is, of course, subject to
    the provisions of the Act).

    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.



    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.



    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.



    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.



    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.



    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.

    ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

    Ewert Place, Ewert House, Summertown, Oxford OX2 7BZ

    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. If you wish to receive
    a copy, please contact Isis (details 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,

    COMMITTEE FOR THE ARCHIVES

    Annual Report 1999–2000

    Committee

    The Principal of Linacre (on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor)
    (Chairman)

    The Senior Proctor (Michaelmas and Hilary Terms)

    The Junior Proctor (Trinity Term)

    The Registrar

    Mrs M. Clapinson (representing Bodley's Librarian)

    Dr G.E. Aylmer

    Dr J.M. Roberts

    Professor R. Fox

    Ms R.C. Dunhill, County Archivist, Hampshire

    Dr R.J. Palmer, Librarian, Lambeth Palace

    The Committee, in accordance with its usual practice, met twice during the
    year.

    Staff

    D.G. Vaisey: Keeper of the Archives (to September 2000)

    S. Bailey: Archivist (Keeper of the Archives from October
    2000
    )

    Ms E.J. Egan: Conservator (part-time)

    Ms F. Midgley: Archives Assistant (to September 2000)

    Ms J.A. Birnie: Archives Assistant (from September 2000)

    On the retirement of David Vaisey as Keeper in September 2000, the
    Committee, with the approval of Council, added the responsibilities of that post
    to those of the Archivist. The separate, part-time post of Keeper has been
    discontinued and the full-time post of Archivist renamed `Keeper of the
    Archives'. A new profession post of Assistant Keeper has been created and an
    appointment to this will be made during the coming year.

    The Committee wishes to record the debt of gratitude owed to Mr Vaisey for
    his significant and substantial contribution to the work of the University
    Archives since 1966 when he was appointed Deputy Keeper. He held that post
    until 1975 and was, as Bodley's Librarian, a Delegate of Privileges and,
    subsequently, a member of the Committee for the Archives from 1986 until his
    appointment to the Keepership in 1995.

    Accounts

    The Archives' income for the year was £71,966 and its expenditure was
    £75,551. The planned deficit of £3,585 continued the Committee's
    policy of expending on a major conservation and preservation programme an
    accumulated balance built up for this purpose. This programme will continue
    until at least September 2001.

    Enquiries and use

    During the year 994 enquiries have been dealt with, 810 of which were from
    the general public; 1998–9 figures were 914 and 676 respectively. The
    rise again reflects ever-increasing use of e-mail. Four hundred and eighty items
    have been transferred to the Bodleian for consultation by readers, whose
    subjects of research have included the printing of Anglo-Saxon texts in the
    seventeenth century; masculinity and the Oxford undergraduate,
    1850–1920; Sir Thomas Jackson's alterations to Oxford buildings; the
    development of British neurophysiology in the twentieth century; and crop-
    drying methods in the 1920s and 1930s. An elevation of the west front of the
    University Museum was lent to the Tate Gallery for the exhibition `Ruskin,
    Turner, and the Pre-Raphaelites'.

    Accessions

    There have sixty-seven accessions from the central administration of the
    University and departments during the year. These have included the minutes
    of the Delegacy of the University Police, 1829–1991, and various
    documents relating to University Sermons and the office of the Summoner of
    Preachers, 1921–90.

    Cataloguing

    Catalogues have been completed of the substantial records of the History of the
    University project and of files of the Director of the Development Office
    relating to the planning and progress of the Campaign for Oxford. Mr Walter
    Mitchell continues to work on the index to the Chancellor's Court but
    completion of this has been further delayed (probably to late 2001) by building
    work in the Archives' premises at the Bodleian.

    Preservation and conservation

    The Conservator, employed two days a week, has continued work on the
    cleaning and repair of seventeenth-century papers of the Chancellor's Court
    and on the cleaning and rehousing of the contents of the Lower Archives
    Room, especially medieval documents with seals. An improved environmental
    monitoring programme for the Archives' accommodation at the Examination
    Schools has been devised and implemented. Work on the conservation of the
    `Great Charter' of 1636, funded by a grant from the Hulme University Fund,
    is almost complete.

    Premises

    Improvements are being made to the Upper and Lower Archives Rooms at the
    Bodleian as part of the BOLD (Bodleian Old Library Development) project.
    These include the removal of asbestos, replacement of floor covering, and
    rewiring; the particularly gloomy lighting in the Lower Archives Room will be
    improved. The high level of relative humidity at the Examination Schools, with
    the consequent risk of mould growth, continues to give cause for concern. It
    is hoped that the more comprehensive environmental data that will be available
    in future will lead to the identification of a long-term solution.

    McDONNELL STUDENTSHIPS

    A small amount of money from the McDonnell Centre will be available
    again for the 2001–2 academic year, to provide one-year graduate
    studentships. These awards can, depending on individual need, cover
    stipend, fees, or both. Studentships will be awarded:

    1. To enable outstanding students with insufficient funding to take the
    taught M.Sc. in Neuroscience (preferably before a funded studentship for the
    D.Phil.).

    2. In exceptional circumstances, to help students in financial
    difficulties during their D.Phil. work, for instance, to extend their
    graduate training, for good reasons, beyond the normal three-year period.

    Preference will be given to applications for projects that involve joint
    supervision, and that will stimulate collaboration between two or more
    groups associated with the McDonnell Centre.

    McDonnell Studentships will not normally be extended, so it is essential
    to demonstrate that any applicant has funding from some other source, if
    the course of study is to last for more than a single year. In
    exceptional circumstances, awards for partial funding may be made for more
    than one year.

    Applications are invited from members of the Centre on behalf of
    prospective or existing students who will be under their academic
    supervision. To apply, the supervisor should write, enclosing the
    candidate's CURRICULUM VITAE and any supporting material, and
    stating clearly the
    level of funding sought and why, to the Administrative Secretary, Oxford
    Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, University Laboratory of Physiology,
    Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT (telephone: Oxford (2)72497, e-mail:
    sally.harte@physiol.ox.ac.uk).

    Application deadlines: for D.Phil. students, Wednesday, 21 February; for
    M.Sc. students, Friday, 30 March.
