Review quote

"A magnificent document. It provides faculty, journalists, scientists, and policy makers with the information they need to confront and analyze this increasingly important problem ... , and to assure that long standing concerns for academic freedom, ethical integrity, and the traditional values of the university will have a fighting chance throughout the United States." --Gerald Markowitz, Distinguished Professor of History, John Jay College of Criminal Justice "The 56 General Principles provide a nearly constitutional template for clearer understanding of how academy and industry collaborate today, and how they may do so more effectively in the future. Not to be missed is an invaluable Appendix giving exact language to use in incorporating these recommendations into faculty handbooks and collective bargaining agreements." --Robert M. O'Neill, president emeritus of the University of Virginia and founding director of the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expressionshow more
