OUP and GRUR announce new publication partnership

Oxford University Press (OUP) and the German Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (GRUR) are very pleased to announce a new partnership between the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP) and Gewerblicher Rechtsschutz und Urheberrecht, Internationaler Teil (GRUR Int.).

The publishing partnership will be based on exchange of content between the two journals. Under this agreement, both journals will include a section in each issue which will be filled by content from the partner journal. There is no additional cost to the customer, and the only change for each journal’s subscriber base will be the benefit of additional interesting content.

Rhodri Jackson, Senior Publisher for Law Journals and Oxford Open at OUP, said: “We’re really excited about this new arrangement, which we believe will allow JIPLP and GRUR Int. alike to extend their reach into new markets in an immediately visible and original way. Best of all, the partnership will provide new and interesting content to all our subscribers. JIPLP has become a very successful journal since we launched in 2006, and the partnership with GRUR shows our continuing commitment to innovating with the JIPLP formula in order to make the journal as compelling as possible to readers internationally.”

Professor Dr Michael Loschelder, Secretary General at GRUR, commented: Intellectual property (IP) law has become increasingly global in nature and has developed into one of the most vibrant and challenging areas of law. As an academic non-profit IP association, GRUR is genuinely interested in fostering the dissemination and perception of IP content of general interest within Europe and beyond. Partnering with the renowned journal JIPLP provides an excellent new platform for this and will contribute to raising the international profile of GRUR Int.”

The first issues of GRUR Int. and JIPLP featuring content from the partner journal will be published in January 2013.
