In its issue dated July 19, 2002, the Chronicle also listed UK as 14th for average income per license ($203,301.71) and 18th for the number of inventions disclosed per $1 million in research spending.

The Chronicle, which included the rankings as sidebars to a story titled "How Colleges Get More Bang (or Less) from Technology Transfer," based its rankings on a five-year analysis of figures compiled annually by the Association of University Technology Managers.
