Section I: Publication of Research Results

Universities and colleges usually have policies regarding the publication of research results that specify circumstances for delaying publication in order for a sponsor to review a manuscript for, for example, proprietary information or for filing for patent protection for possible inventions. The questions in this section ask about these policies at your institution.

Please Note: When answering questions in this section, exclude any delay of publication required by a federal agency for the review for classified information.
