IP Full Disclosure

When an invention or discovery is made by San José State University (SJSU) faculty or staff, or by SJSU students using SJSU resources, an IP Disclosure must be made describing the IP and facts related to the discovery. If you are familiar with the disclosure process, you may elect to bypass the notification step and start the process by preparing a draft full disclosure.
