The Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP) is delighted to announce that, in the first half of 2023, it will publish a special issue entirely devoted to the relationship between intellectual property (IP) and the Green Economy, in particular the Circular Economy.
This special issue will be jointly edited by (in alphabetical order) Stefano Barazza, Irene Calboli, Sarah Harris, Annette Kur, and Eleonora Rosati.
We invite interested authors to submit articles addressing Green Economy issues from an IP perspective. Potential topics include – but are not limited to! – the following:
- Sustainability and IP;
- Right to repair;
- Greenwashing and IP;
- Green trade marks;
- Craft and industrial GIs;
- Exhaustion / first sale doctrine as applied to the Green / Circular Economy (e.g., upcycling);
- Green patents.
Articles should have a length comprised between 2,000 and 5,000 words (footnotes included) and comply with JIPLP author guidelines.
The deadline for submissions, which can be only made through the JIPLP submission site, is 23 January 2023. No late submissions can be considered for this special issue.
JIPLP is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal so all articles that are received will undergo a review process. In this sense, submission of an article will not automatically entail its acceptance for publication.
For any questions and/or to inquire about the suitability of a certain topic/angle, please contact JIPLP Managing Editor, Sarah Harris, by email.
We look forward to receiving your contributions!
