Bio-law articles now have two homes at OUP

JIPLP's new sister journal, the Journal of Law and the Biosciences (JLB), is the first fully open access peer-reviewed legal journal to focus on the advances at the intersection of law and the biosciences. A co-venture between Duke University, Harvard University Law School and Stanford University, this interdisciplinary online academic journal publishes cutting-edge scholarship in this important new field. Its content comprises original and response articles, essays, and commentaries on a wide range of topics, including bioethics, neuroethics, genetics, reproductive technologies, stem cells, enhancement, patent law and food and drug regulation. JLB is published as one volume with three issues per year.  New articles are posted online on an ongoing basis.

From time to time JIPLP receives articles on biopatenting that are of some merit but which, containing considerably more biotechnology than law, are not entirely suitable for our primarily legal and practical readership.  Potential contributors should think about submitting such articles initially to JBL rather than to JIPLP -- particularly since articles, once peered and accepted, are likely to be published more swiftly in a new journal than in a mature one (JIPLP has been going since 2005) where occasionally an increase the flow of accepted articles exceeds our ability to expedite publication.

Disclosure: the editor of JIPLP is a member of the JLB editorial board.
