Policies

  • Peer-Editing. Faculty members solicit and select works for publication in IP Theory.
  • Open Access. The journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. In addition to our website, IP Theory is available to subscribers of HeinOnline.
  • Publication Cycles. IP Theory has no set publication schedule. Online-only publication provides the flexibility to respond to current events and trends in intellectual property. Light student editing enables faster publication times. In order to manage the editing process, we tend to solicit submissions at the beginning of each academic semester and assign editing work to student editors throughout the academic year. If a particular volume has more than one issue during an academic year, the break will likely be between the fall and spring semesters.
  • Submissions. IP Theory does not accept unsolicited submissions at this time. If you have a work you would like to be considered for our publication, please contact the academic advisers at Indiana University Maurer School of Law or Emory School of Law to discuss your topic and our publication availability.
  • Copyright Policy. Authors retain copyright; IP Theory is granted right of first publication. Concurrent publication will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Authors are encouraged to post their work online (institutional repositories, SSRN, etc.) before and during the publication process, as it can lead to productive exchanges as well as increased citation and awareness of the work.
