Objectives

The objectives of the IJIPM are two-fold: firstly, to enhance communications between policy makers, organisational agents, academics, and managers on the critical understanding and research on intellectual property; secondly, to promote the development of the newly-cultivated research field. A truly international perspective to the studies of intellectual property is applied, with a great emphasis on issues in management, economics, politics, and international business.


Readership

The IJIPM builds up linkages between professionals and academics to exchange ideas and information in research and practice, and stimulates knowledge dissemination in this interdisciplinary field.


Contents

The IJIPM welcomes theoretical and empirical papers with original contributions to advance the research in the field of intellectual property. It is pluralistic in methodology, i.e. conceptual papers, case studies, theoretical development, hypothetical test papers, and book reviews are all welcome. Comparative studies across countries and firms are encouraged. Special Issues devoted to important topics in intellectual property will occasionally be published.
