Oxford University Press launches new journal of Intellectual Property law
Oxford University Press is delighted to announce the launch of a new
Intellectual Property journal. The Journal of Intellectual Property Law
and Practice, (JIPLP) will publish peer-reviewed research across the full
range of substantive IP topics, including practice-related matters such as
litigation; enforcement; drafting and transactions; and relevant aspects
of related subjects such as competition and world trade law.

JIPLP aims to become an essential resource for lawyers and attorneys
working in intellectual property law, patenting and trademarks, as well as
academics specialising in IP, members of the judiciary, officials in IP
registries or regulatory bodies, and institutional libraries.
Subject-matter will be of global interest, with a particular focus upon IP
law and practice in Europe.

Wencke Boerrigter, senior Law editor, Oxford Journals, commented "Oxford
Journals' Law collection stands at the forefront of legal enquiry and
research, and has grown significantly in the past year, with the
acquisition of the Human Rights Law Review, and the Chinese Journal of
International law, and the launch of Journal of Competition Law and
Economics in 2005." She continued,

"We're delighted to be publishing this new title, in what is an
increasingly significant area of law right around the world.  The twin
drivers of developing technology and trade-related policy will ensure that
intellectual property continues to be a major focus for legal developments
and academic analysis, to which the new journal will respond and

JIPLP will be edited by Professor Jeremy Phillips, and will also benefit
from the experience and insights of its distinguished editorial board,
whose members include both practitioners and academics across Europe, the
US and other key jurisdictions.

"I am delighted to be working with OUP in launching JIPLP, a journal that
is unashamedly dedicated to discussing the most original ideas, the most
creative solutions and the most powerful analysis of current events that
drive intellectual property practice today," commented Professor Jeremy
Phillips, Editor JIPLP.

JIPLP is now online, with advanced access available to the latest
articles. The first print issue will be available from the end of November
