CALL FOR APPLICATIONS - Intellectual Property Journal Student Editors

Founded in 1984, the Intellectual Property Journal (IPJ) covers matters relating to all aspects of Intellectual Property such as patents, trade-marks, copyright, designs, trade secrets, and related areas such as privacy. The focus of the journal is on Canadian material with a mix of comparative and   international   law   content.   The   IPJ   contains   articles,   opinions,   book   reviews,   case commentaries   and   writings   on   legal   developments   around   the   world.   The   IPJ   accepts submissions  from  any  interested  parties,  including  students,  provided  that  they  meet  a  high standard of scholarly rigour.

The Journal, edited by Professor Giuseppina D’Agostino, is published by Carswell (http://www.carswell.com/product-detail/intellectual-property-journal/) three times per year.

Professor D’Agostino invites Osgoode law students to apply for the student editor positions. These editors will be responsible for reviewing and arranging for the peer review of journal articles, providing feedback to those who have submitted papers to the journal and coordinating logistical matters, including communicating with authors regarding deadlines and other journal policies.
