Announcing the JIPLP Special Issue on the national transpositions of the DSM Directive: Call for Articles!

The Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP) is delighted to announce a Call for Articles for its forthcoming special issue on the national transpositions of the DSM Directive 2019/790, which will be published in 2022.

Interested authors are invited to submit articles in the range of 3,500-6,000 words on a topic of their choice within this theme for consideration for publication in JIPLP. The issue will focus on the national approaches to the interpretation and transpositions of the Directive's provisions. Both actual transposition measures and draft provisions can be the topic of articles. No articles focusing exclusively on the text of the Directive may be considered for this issue.

Relevant articles must be submitted through the online portal, be in accordance with JIPLP house style, and carry the indication that they are for consideration for the special issue on the DSM Directive's national transpositions.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, 18 March 2022. No late submissions will be considered for this special issue.

For authors interested in discussing informally the topic of a possible contribution, please email the Editor of this special issue, Eleonora Rosati, and/or Managing Editor Sarah Harris.

The special issue will be available in complimentary open access for a limited period of time after publication. The Editor is also considering the possible organization of an online conference/meeting with the authors of the special issue after the special issue has been published.
