Research Data is Institutional Property

In accordance with recognized scientific research procedures, University personnel are required to record all research data and information accurately and clearly and to keep all such data in a permanent and retrievable form. In addition, with regard to a patentable invention, original laboratory data must be kept for the life of the patent. University personnel must also securely store tangible property (such as biological materials, chemical compounds, and computer discs) related to an invention or work to which the University has asserted or may assert its ownership rights. Personnel who leave the University may be permitted to copy their laboratory notebooks and take the copies with them, or take samples of tangible property with them, although they are required to maintain the confidentiality of the data contained within the notebooks or the tangible property. The original notebooks will remain at the University.

At UF this policy is formalized in the Intellectual Property Policy   . Contact the Office of Technology and Licensing (OTL) if you have any questions.

The VA specifies this in the VHA Handbook 1200.05, 29.i. Contact the VA Research Service Administration to receive written permission to take a copy of any data.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
