IP Theory is a new peer-edited intellectual property law publication hosted by Indiana University Maurer School of Law’s IP Program. It is neither law journal nor blog; it is a different sort of publication designed to occupy a niche between the two. Accordingly, we expect it to serve as a new forum for:
- essays or opinion pieces that are more concise (and more lightly footnoted) than typical law review articles
- book reviews
- reviews of literature – either IP scholarly literature or literature in allied fields
IP Theory will be published online, indexed as an open-access journal, and available through the usual subscription services (e.g. Westlaw).
IP Theory will be peer-edited. Faculty peers will solicit and select content. Student editors will manage logistics and do only light edits, enabling a fast turnover of manuscripts.
