Does the policy apply to data and materials generated as part of educational rather than research activities, for example, by students?

No. The policy is intended to apply to data and materials used for research purposes. Data and materials generated by students in the course of their studies, designed to give students the experience of research, are generally excluded. In classroom settings, especially in a collaborative environment, the instructor determines the rules for data sharing, retention, and access. Yale supports students’ rights to their work.  The University’s patent policy may also apply.
