OTT Standard Data Request Disclosure

Below is a list of caveats to keep in mind related to data requests concerning technology transfer activity.

  • Department assignments are made at the time of disclosure to the best of OTTs knowledge for Emory faculty, staff, or student listed on the disclosure form. These technology assignments do not change over time.
  • Patents can be counted more than once. This is due to the one-to-many relationship between the data element and inventors. For example, one disclosure can have multiple inventors listed and each of those can be associated with a different department. Therefore, each department “count” would include that same disclosure. This type of data cannot be summed for totals.
