Icahn School of Medicine and The Mount Sinai Hospital ("Mount Sinai") encourage faculty and staff members to further their professional pursuits through the publication of scholarly books, periodicals and articles, computer programs, audio-visual works and other works. In most circumstances, it is not appropriate that the Mount Sinai name appear in the title of any such work or be used in connection with the marketing of the work (other than to identify the author's status at the institution). In unusual circumstances, however, it may be desirable both from the perspectives of the author and Mount Sinai to include the Mount Sinai name in the title of the work or to feature it in the marketing of the work, thus creating a strong identification of the work with the institution (examples of situations where the use of Mount Sinai's name might be appropriate include projects where the work consists of several books as part of a monograph series or where the work is intended to communicate health information to the lay public and is undertaken either as an activity sponsored by a department or division or involves the collaborations of a substantial number of members of a department).
Use of Mount Sinai's name in the title of any work or in connection with the marketing of the work (other than the identification of the author's status at Mount Sinai) must first be approved by the institution. The purpose of this policy is to set fort h the procedures that must be followed to obtain such approval. This policy is intended to supplement existing policies regarding works by Mount Sinai authors and is not intended to replace any existing policy. It is especially important that this policy be read in conjunction with the institution's copyright policy.
