Collaborative Research Forums Terms of Use

Some Open Proposals forums are collaborative research discussions where ideas, project proposals and comments are intended for the forum participants only. By registering, you accept the following terms of participation for any collaborative research discussions hosted on UCSF Open Proposals:

  1. I agree to keep proposals on collaborative research forums confidential and to not share or disseminate content or links without permission of a collaborative research group lead and the proposal author.
  2. I agree to respect the proposers’ implied personal intellectual contributions to and ownership of ideas posted on these forums, including the proposals themselves and any comments or revisions.

Collaborative research forums can be identified by presence of the following language on the forum main page: "This is a collaborative research forum. By accessing or participating in discussions, you agree to the Collaborative Research Forums Terms of Use".
