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.)

MCDONNELL–PEW CENTRE FOR COGNITIVE
NEUROSCIENCE

In 1990, the James S. McDonnell Foundation of St Louis, and the Pew
Charitable Trusts of Philadelphia, USA, funded the establishment of an
interdisciplinary research centre, the McDonnell–Pew Centre, for research
in cognitive neuroscience. Oxford was the only institution outside North
America to be awarded a Centre grant and it was one of three institutions
receiving a major Centre award (along with MIT and the University of
California at San Diego). A new award from the James S. McDonnell Foundation
continues to fund the Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience until April 2003.

The Centre, which is closely integrated with the Medical Research Council
Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, links work on many aspects of brain
research relevant to human cognition in several departments at Oxford and
other institutions. It encourages work in all areas of cognitive neuroscience
across all relevant disciplines, and embraces research on experimental,
theoretical, and clinical studies of perceptual analysis, memory, language, and
motor control, including philosophical approaches to cognition. Current and
fuller information on the Centre is available on the Web at
http://www.cogneuro.ox.ac.uk.

The renewed Centre offers several forms of support:

One-year graduate studentships;

Visiting Fellowships, to contribute to the costs of short-term visits from
distinguished researchers from overseas;

Seminar programme;

Workshops, for the planning of collaborative research;

Annual Autumn School in Cognitive Neuroscience, mainly for graduate students
and postdoctoral scientists;

Network Grants, to cover the costs of exchange visits for collaboration with
laboratories elsewhere in the world, especially in Europe and North America;

Research support fund, providing small grants for pilot projects and
experience in new techniques;

Pilot project grants for functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, to enable
investigators to start projects at the Oxford Centre for Functional Magnetic
Resonance Imaging of the Brain (FMRIB);

Travel Funds, especially for costs of visits to other laboratories or to training
courses to learn new techniques.

Support is normally restricted to members of the McDonnell–Pew
Centre but, in exceptional circumstances, applications from others will be
considered.

Anyone wishing to join the mailing list of the Centre should contact the
Administrative Secretary, McDonnell–Pew Secretariat, University
Laboratory of Physiology, Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT (telephone: Oxford
(2)72497, e-mail: admin@cogneuro.ox.ac.uk).

2000)

In Examination Decrees, 1999, delete from p. 885, l. 18 to p. 888,
l. 35, and substitute:

`1. Admission/First year course work

In Modern History (which includes medieval history, economic and social
history, history of science, and history of art) graduate students are initially
admitted either as candidates for a taught course or as Probationer Research
Students. The requirements for all taught courses are laid out in detail under
their individual regulations above.

Candidates wishing to conduct research in the field of the History of Art may
be required by the Faculty Board's Graduate Studies Committee to pass a
Qualifying Examination before being admitted to PRS, M.Litt., or D.Phil.
status, in which case the course study for the Examination will be that set for
the M.St. in the History of Art and Visual Culture, and will be examined by
the examiners for that M.St. at the end of each Trinity Term.
Probationer Research Students: Unless they have elected to enter for
examination in the M.St. in Historical Research, or the M.St. in Historical
Research, or the M.St. in Historical Research (Medieval History), or have been
otherwise dispensed, Probationer Research Students are required to undertake
the work laid down below. Each candidate must normally:

(a) attend such lectures, seminars, and classes as his or her
supervisor shall determine; and

(b) present one seminar paper during the course. Such paper
shall normally be assessed by two assessors. Such assessors should not
include the candidate's supervisor. The work done for the seminar paper may
form the basis of the essay required under (2) below.

(i) Applications for admission/transfer to M.Litt. or D.Phil. status
shall be accompanied (or, in the case of candidates for the M.St. in Historical
Research and the M.St. in Historical Research (Medieval History), followed at
the appropriate date) by:

(1) two copies of a brief statement, limited to 500 words, of the subject of
the thesis and the manner in which the candidate proposes to treat it;

(2) two copies of a piece of written work, normally 3,000–5,000 words
long (up to 10,000 words in the case of candidates for the M.St. in Historical
Research, or up to 15,000 words in the case of candidates for the M.St. in
Historical Research (Medieval History)), being either (a) a section of
the proposed thesis, or (b) an essay on a relevant topic, or (except
in the case of candidates for the M.St. in Historical Research and the M.St. in
Historical Research (Medieval History)) (c) an augmented version of
the statement required under (1) above; candidates should note that if they
adopt alternative (c) they must also submit the 500-word statement
required by decree;

(3) two copies of a confidential report from the supervisor, which should
be sent to by the supervisor directly to the Graduate Studies Office.
Successful completion of either the work prescribed above or of the M.St. in
Historical Research or the M.St. in Historical Research (Medieval History) is not
in itself sufficient qualification for students to advance to M.Litt. or D.Phil.
status.

(ii) Candidates for the M.St. in Historical Research or the M.St. in Historical
Research (Medieval History) who were unsuccessful in the examination, and
whose application for transfer to M.Litt. or D.Phil. status was also
unsuccessful, will be deemed to have transferred from PRS to M.St. status.

They will be permitted to re-enter the M.St. examination and/or to make a
further application for transfer on one occasion only.

2. Readmission after completion of a taught course

(i) Students who are entered as candidates for the examination
in the M.St. in Modern History, M.St. in English Local History, M.Sc. in
Economic and Social History, M.Sc. in History of Science: Instruments,
Museums, Science, Technology, M.St. in Byzantine Studies, or another relevant
Master's course may apply for admission to PRS/ M.Litt./D.Phil. status in the
term in which they enter the examination for the M.St. in Modern History,
M.St. in
English Local History, M.Sc. Economic and Social History, or M.St. in Byzantine
Studies, etc., normally in their first Hilary Term. Readmission may be made
conditional on such requirements as the Graduate Studies Committee may
impose; and admission will normally be to dispensed PRS status. Successful
completion of their current degree is not in itself sufficient qualification for
students to be
readmitted for a research degree.

(ii) Candidates who have already been given leave to supplicate for the
Degree of M.Phil. in Economic and Social History, or M.Phil. in Byzantine
Studies, or M.Phil. in
Modern European History, or who are entered as candidates for the
examination in these degrees, may apply, usually in their second Hilary Term,
for admission to D.Phil. status by submitting two copies of a brief statement,
limited to 2,000 words, of the subject of the thesis, the manner in which the
candidate proposes to treat it, and the relationship of the M.Phil. dissertation
to the proposed D.Phil. thesis. Two copies of a confidential report from the
supervisor should be sent directly to the Graduate Studies Office. Successful
completion of their current M.Phil. is not in itself sufficient qualification for
students to be readmitted for a research degree.

3. Transfer to M.Litt. or D.Phil. status

(i) The application shall normally be presented to the Graduate
Studies Office not later than Monday of Second Week in the candidate's third
term, with statements of support from the candidate's society and supervisor.
Dispensed Probationer Research Students will be expected to submit their
application not later than Monday of Second Week in their second term. In
exceptional cases the Graduate Studies Committee may permit the candidate to
postpone submission by up to one term: candidates seeking such postponement
should apply to the Director of Graduate Studies well in advance.

(ii) Two copies of a confidential report from the supervisor should be sent
by the supervisor directly to the Graduate Studies Office. The Graduate
Studies Office shall send both copies of the written work and the confidential
report to the candidate's interview who will pass on one copy to the second
assessor named as below.

(iii) The interviewer shall then, together with a second assessor appointed
in conjunction with the Director of Graduate Studies, examine the candidate
orally. The interviewer shall be entitled after consultation with the Director
of Graduate Studies to appoint a deputy to act
instead. When the interviewer is also the supervisor, the Director of Graduate
Studies shall act as if he or she were the interviewer and shall have power
to appoint a deputy and the second assessor.
For candidates for the M.St. in Historical Research and for the M.St. in
Historical Research (Medieval History) the viva voce examination will
incorporate the Transfer of
Status interview. In these cases interviewers and second assessors are
appointed by the Examiners.

(iv) The assessors shall report to the Graduate Studies Committee in
writing whether the candidate's subject is
satisfactory for the degree in question and whether he or she is competent
to tackle it.1 If they think this is not the case, they may recommend
resubmission after a set
period of further probation (within the statutory limit of six terms). If they
disagree, the Graduate Studies Committee shall decide what should be done.
It will be open to candidates to appeal to the Faculty Board against an
unfavourable decision.

(v) Candidates holding the status of M.Litt. student may apply for transfer
to D.Phil. status at any time, within the statutory limit of nine terms. Their
Transfer of Status application will be considered according to the procedure
laid down for confirmation of D.Phil. status (see below). The interviewer
appointed by the Faculty Board shall follow that procedure, except that the
interviewer will be asked to state explicitly whether in addition to this
procedure a subsequent formal confirmation of D.Phil. status would be
desirable, or not.

4. Confirmation of D.Phil. status

(i) Application for confirmation of D.Phil. status, with statements
of support from the candidate's society and supervisor, shall normally be
presented to the Graduate Studies Office not later than Monday of Second
Week in the eighth term after admission as Probationer Research Student. In
exceptional cases the Graduate Studies Committee may permit the candidate to
postpone submission by up to one term: candidates seeking such postponement
should apply to the Committee through the Director of Graduate Studies well
in advance.

(ii) Application for confirmation of D.Phil. status shall be accompanied by:
(1) a statement of up to 500 words of the title of the thesis and of the
manner in which the candidate proposes to treat it; (2) a specimen chapter or
part of a chapter not longer than 6,000 words; (3) a confidential report from
the supervisor which should be sent direct to the Graduate Studies Office.
The Graduate Studies Office should send the written work and the confidential
report to the interviewer appointed by the Faculty Board.

(iii) The interviewer shall then examine the candidate orally. If the
interviewer considers it necessary, a second assessor may be appointed in
conjunction with the Director of Graduate Studies. In cases where the
interviewer is also the supervisor, the Director of Graduate Studies shall act
as if he or she were the interviewer and shall have power to appoint a
deputy and, if necessary, a second assessor.

(iv) The interviewer shall report to the Graduate Studies Committee in
writing whether the candidate's subject is satisfactory and whether he or she
is competent to tackle it. If confirmation is not recommended the interviewer
may recommend reapplication after a further period (within the statutory limit
of nine terms from admission to PRS status) or alternatively transfer to M.Litt.
status. It will be open to the candidate to appeal to the Faculty Board against
an unfavourable decision.

5. Theses

Theses submitted for the Degree of M.Litt. should not
exceed 50,000 words and those submitted for the Degree of D.Phil. should not
exceed 100,000 words, including all notes, appendices, any source material
being edited, and all other parts of the thesis whatsoever, excluding only the
bibliography; any thesis exceeding these limits is liable to be rejected on that
ground. Any application for permission to exceed the limit should be submitted
with a
detailed explanation and statement of the amount of
excess length requested, and with a covering letter from the supervisor.

Applications should be made as soon as possible and may not be made later
than the last day of the fifth week of the term before that in which
application is made for appointment of examiners. The presentation and
footnotes should comply with the requirements specified in the Regulations of
the General Board for the degrees
of M.Litt. and D.Phil. and follow the Conventions for the presentation of
dissertations and theses of the Faculty of Modern History.

All candidates msut submit with their theses two printed or typewritten copies
of an abstract of the thesis, which shall not normally exceed 1,500 words for
the M.Litt. or 2,500 words for the D.Phil., prepared by the student. This is in
addition to the requirement to submit an abstract of not more than 300 words
in length required by the General Board's regulations. Copies of both
abstracts shall be bound into the copy of the thesis which shall be deposited
in the Bodleian Library.'
