IJIPM focuses on the study of intellectual property (IP) across a wide range of topics, and embraces studies of IP from the fields of business, management, economics and government policy. Different perspectives that encourage innovation and knowledge creation and transfer are welcome, particularly those which reflect IJIPM's special emphasis on how the topic has evolved considerably from an initial focus on legislation to the current debate surrounding ways of approaching IP in the digital context.
Topics covered include
- History of IP, from international/national or context/sector perspectives
- IP culture/ideologies
- International IP harmonisation
- IP valuation methods: disparities and economic significance
- Internal and external corporate and organisational strategies
- Licensing in and out
- Cooperative R&D in IP
- Innovation and technology management
- IP litigation and policy
- Entrepreneurship and venturing, spin-offs, start-ups and IP
- Finance and IP
- IP information management,
- Contextual differences in IP
- Decision making in IP commercialisation
- Global piracy and IP
The objectives of IJIPM are to enhance the critical understanding of intellectual property in theory and practice, to appreciate the strategic importance of intellectual property to corporate and organisational success, and to disseminate knowledge on the management of intellectual property and the commercialisation of different forms of intellectual property.
IJIPM ensures that such studies reach a global readership of scholars, students, consultants, practitioners and policymakers who recognise the importance of IP as a means of improving people's quality of life and enriching society.
IJIPM publishes theoretical articles, empirical studies based on quantitative or qualitative methods, practice-oriented papers, teaching-oriented papers, case studies, book reviews, conference reports, short articles on current trends in science and social science, abstracts of recent PhDs on innovation and knowledge, and shorter opinion-based and review articles, commentaries and debates.

AI disentangles quantum patents
18 March, 2023
A new study in the International Journal of Intellectual Property Management, demonstrates how so-called artificial intelligence (AI) techniques can be used instead of conventional text analysis to disentangle information from a large body of work. Proof of principle was undertaken using a patents database and focusing on research and technologies utilising the field of quantum science. The specific case revealed interesting dynamics concerning global innovation and national organisational profiles pertaining to competition in this area between China and the USA. Zeki Can Seskir of the Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Kelvin W. Willoughby of the HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management, Germany, built an operating definition of quantum technology and then used AI to create a global patent database. The approach allowed them to extract pertinent information in this field that could be useful to policymakers and managers looking to understand international innovation in this field. The same approach might work just as well in other fields. The approach blended human analysis and AI processing of the body of work [...]More details...
