The Johns Hopkins University Intellectual Property Policy, adopted on June 8, 1992, includes the following provisions reprinted below relevant to sponsored projects. A summary of this Policy, in its entirety, is set forth in Appendix A of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Intellectual Property Guidelines (January 4, 1995). (See Section VI for a summary of the policies on Inventions, Patents, License Agreements, Material Transfer Agreements, Copyrights and Confidentiality.)
The University shall only enter into a research contract or other binding commitment to perform work that can reasonably be expected to be publishable, provide educational opportunities, and/or be in the public interest.
2. Use of the University's Name
All written or broadcast material containing the University's name for advertising, marketing, or other promotional purposes shall be submitted for approval to the Divisional Public Affairs Officer, and the Dean, prior to use of such material. A statement on the use of the University's name shall be included in all appropriate contracts between industry (company) and the University.
The University shall enter into contracts or other binding commitments to conduct research and training only if they permit the disclosure and publication of research. Delays in publication up to 120 days may be agreed to in order to permit time for filing of patent applications.
The faculty shall not undertake research in which the sponsor:
- a. prohibits the faculty member from disclosing the existence of the agreement; or
- b. restricts the faculty member's public disclosure of information developed by that faculty member (see Section IV.C.3., above).
