The innovation engine for new materials

Publications & Presentations

Publications and presentations of your DowMI research are strongly encouraged. Nevertheless, the DowMI Research Agreement stipulates a review period prior to submission of materials for publication or presentation, such as journal articles, abstracts, presentation slides and posters.

The procedures below should be followed:

  1. Inventive ideas and results that demonstrate the invention should be discussed with your Dow Project Manager and where appropriate, an invention disclosure should be filed.
  2. Materials for publication or presentation should be sent to your Dow project manager no later than 30 days prior to the date of submission.
    • This includes material that has already been approved by Dow for a previous conference or meeting.
    • Please note, if the materials contain inventive aspects that have not yet been described in a patent application, Dow may request that publication is delayed by up to an additional 60 days.
  3. Authors or presenters should contact alainamcgrath [at] mrl [dot] ucsb [dot] edu (Alaina McGrath) no later than 7 days prior to the date of submission or presentation if you have not yet received approval from Dow.
  4. Authors should acknowledge “the Dow Chemical Company and the Dow Materials Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara” for financial support.
  5. When including the Dow and DowMI logos on your slides, posters or other printed materials, please follow the guidelines given here.
