Chapter 17-200: Non-administrative, Research Records

This section concerns records that are writings prepared, owned, used, or retained by the University relating to the non-administrative, intellectual conduct of research. Such records include, but are not limited to, unpublished research notes and data, preliminary research reports or summaries, and unfunded extramural proposals. (See Section 17-112.) In accordance with Academic Personnel Manual Section 020, University Regulation Series No. 4, Special Services to Individuals and Organizations, "Notebooks and other original records of research are the property of the University."

Should a request be made for access to such records under the California Public Records Act (see Section 17-S01), a decision regarding the applicability of the Act to such records must be made on a case-by-case basis in coordination with the campus Coordinator of Information Practices.

In turn, the campus Coordinator of Information Practices may consult as needed with the Office of the General Counsel.
