Invitation to Submit Articles

The Intellectual Property and Technology Law Review (IPTLRev) invites members of the bench, bar, and academic communities to submit articles on any intellectual property law-related topic. IPTLRev is published twice each year, in the Fall and in the Spring, and is comprised of essays, legal articles, public administration articles, and current public law and policy issues. In particular, we prefer analysis of new laws, cases, rulings, regulations and areas of intellectual property in which the author presents his or her opinion concerning the validity, significance and/or impact of the question at issue, along with innovative ideas or strategies.

IPTLRev accepts articles in electronic forms only (e-mail attachment or on a 3-1/2 inch disk) in one of the following formats: Microsoft Word (preferred), WordPerfect, or Rich Text Format (RTF). Graphics should be submitted in Visio or PowerPoint format. Articles should be typed, double spaced, and with 1 inch margins throughout. For citations and general questions of style please follow the ALWD Citation Manual and The Chicago Manual Of Style (14th ed. 1993).

Article Review

All submissions will be reviewed for publication by the Board of Editors. Publication in any issue is dependent on editorial limitations, publication schedules, and space availability. Authors will be notified of the Board's decision regarding publication of their article as soon as possible. Accepted articles undergo extensive editorial and technical review prior to publication. IPTLRev reserves the right to condition acceptance of an article upon revision of the article to conform to the law review’s guidelines. No compensation is provided for published articles.

Please note that IPTLRev will not publish material that has been committed for publication in another journal except by written permission by the Board of Editors. Authors should promptly advise the Board when their work has been accepted elsewhere. Articles submitted to IPTLRev will be returned only in the event of an express request by the author(s).
