Call for Papers: IPCLJ, Fall 2021 Edition

The University of Cincinnati Intellectual Property and Computer Law Journal is open for submissions as of September 22, 2021 and will continue to accept submissions until November 19, 2021.

Content Requirements: We accept submission of unsolicited articles, notes, and papers via e-mail or postal service, focusing on the following topics and current issues:

  • Intellectual property law
  • Computer law
  • Privacy law
  • General technology law
  • Technology-related business law

Length: The Journal is committed to publishing work that is concise and readable. We strongly encourage submissions of fewer than 8,000 words, including footnotes (roughly 28 journal pages). Manuscript length may be a significant factor regarding consideration of the manuscript.

Citations: Citations must conform to the Twentieth Edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. Failure to conform to the The Bluebook will be a significant factor against acceptance of the manuscript.

Abstract: Please include a short abstract with your submission.

Data: The Journal values the contributions of empirical and experimental studies to the legal literature, and accordingly takes special care to ensure transparency and reproducibility in papers that use methodologies typically employed by the social sciences. As such, authors of publications are expected to provide any datasets and experimental procedures not included in the text of the paper to the Journal for publication on our blog, unless an exception is made prior to acceptance. Authors are expected to provide the Journal with these materials before publication. Please note that we are able to consider the piece more quickly if the files are provided at the time of submission.

We consider each manuscript we receive using an extensive review process, which can take several weeks. If you have received an offer of publication from another journal, please request expedited review of your submission, and a representative from our editorial board will contact you as soon as possible. 

Interested professors, scholars, and authors should send an e-mail inquiry to and a representative from our editorial board will promptly provide you with writing guidelines and other details.

Thank you for your support as we continue to provide scholarship surrounding intellectual property, technology law, and other related fields of law.
