Publication and Presentation Guidelines
As per the terms of the MC-CAM Research Agreement executed between UCSB
and the Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC), publication and public
presentations of research results arising from MC-CAM funded projects are
recognized as important components of the overall program. Nevertheless, the
Research Agreement stipulates a review period prior to submission of
materials for publication or presentation:
11. Publication. The University will have the right, at its discretion,
to release information or to publish any material resulting from its
performance hereunder. The University will furnish Mitsubishi with a copy of
any proposed written or oral publication at least thirty (30) days prior to submission for
publication. Upon written notification by Mitsubishi, the University agrees
to delete any of Mitsubishi's confidential information as set forth in
Article 10, above, and/or to delay publishing such proposed publication an
additional sixty (60) days, or longer upon the mutual written agreement of
the University and Mitsubishi, to protect the potential patentability of any
invention described therein.
Beyond these general terms, the following guidelines should be followed in
preparing materials for publication or presentation that pertain to MC-CAM
- Materials should be supplied to Sara Bard, email@example.com, in
electronic form (PDF preferable)
no later than 30 days prior to the date of submission for presentation or publication.
Sara will promptly forward materials to the appropriate MCC Personnel
for review. Abstracts for future publications and presentation are subject to an abbreviated review and
must be submitted no later than 7 days prior to the date they are due.
- Authors or presenters should contact the MC-CAM Director no later
than 7 days prior to the date of submission or presentation if clearance
from MCC has not been received by that date.
- Authors who are notified by MCC that publication should be delayed
to protect the patentability of an invention are encouraged to immediately
contact Sara Bard, firstname.lastname@example.org (x7913), or Mary Raven in the UCSB Office of Technology & Industry Alliances Office,
email@example.com (x5129), to seek guidance on patent preparation.
The involvement of UCSB and MCC employees in the invention should be
documented at that time. Provisional filings are encouraged if a substantial
delay in publication would be damaging to the personnel on the project.
- Authors should add "Mitsubishi Chemical Center for Advanced Materials"
before "University of California, Santa Barbara" as an affiliation in the title section of manuscripts or presentation materials. Accordingly,
MC-CAM does NOT have to be mentioned in a separate acknowledgment section.
