Call for Papers

The Intellectual Property (IP) Journal, a professional electronic
journal of the Patent and Trademark Depository Library Association
(PTDLA), will serve as the channel of communication and sharing of
expertise in this exciting field of intellectual property that guides
industrial and information technologies.  The journal welcomes
submissions of original papers from both members and non-members on all
forms of intellectual property: patents, trademarks, copyrights, and
trade secrets.  All aspects of intellectual property are covered by the
journal: from historical discussions and treatments, procedures and
practice, research and information services, users of intellectual
property and their needs, to intellectual property laws and legislation
and important existing and evolving national and international


The IP Journal of the PTDLA welcomes proposals of papers on
intellectual property.    Your paper proposal should provide the title

status of your proposal.  At this time, a tentative schedule will be set
for submission and publication of the full article that adheres to the
established journal format.  Once your full paper is received, the
editor will send you an acknowledgement letter.  All manuscripts,
solicited and unsolicited, will go through a double blind peer-review
process, and be evaluated for interest and relevance to the readership,
soundness and accuracy of subject content, readability, and overall
contribution of knowledge to the intellectual property field and the
