Market Study Norey Laug 04 Jan 1995 13:01 EST

Recently Tulane University has been requested to enter into a market
feasibility study whereby all information resulting from the study is to be
confidential.  It is not our practice to enter into research agreements that
place a bar to publication.  However, I understand that market studies, in
general, are not published.  What I would like to know:   1) Have any other
Universities entered into such agreements?, and if so, 2) How was the issue
of publication addressed?

Any response on this issue would be greatly appreciated
