English Language Editing 

For editors and reviewers to accurately assess the work presented in your manuscript you need to ensure the English language is of sufficient quality to be understood. If you need help with writing in English you should consider:
  • Asking a colleague who is a native English speaker to review your manuscript for clarity.
  • Visiting the English language tutorial which covers the common mistakes when writing in English.
  • Using a professional language editing service where editors will improve the English to ensure that your meaning is clear and identify problems that require your review. Two such services are provided by our affiliates Nature Research Editing Service and American Journal Experts. Springer authors are entitled to a 10% discount on their first submission to either of these services, simply follow the links below.
Please note that the use of a language editing service is not a requirement for publication in this journal and does not imply or guarantee that the article will be selected for peer review or accepted.

    Aims and Scope

    Close

    The International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law (IIC), tracks worldwide developments in intellectual property and competition law, presenting the finest academic research in these fields from a European legal perspective.  

    Our scholarly emphasis concentrates on disseminating and expanding upon the European approach to law. Our goal is to set ourselves apart from other (esp. several US) publications. To this end we focus on two specific aims:

    (1)   The most significant legal developments from around the world (including, in particular, Asia), are taken up and considered within the European context. These developments are presented in a manner that is understandable not only to a European audience, but also to US and Japanese readers.

    (2)   Current legal developments occurring in Europe are examined in such a way that the non-European reader can appreciate their significance.

    IIC offers a platform for opposing ideas, providing for rich debate on a host of current IP and competition law topics.

    The value of IIC for European specialists, going beyond other “European” journals, rests in our treatment of non-European topics combined with our illuminating analyses of European legal developments as seen within a global legal context.

    For non-European specialists, IIC is the medium of choice as it explores developments extending beyond strictly European legal issues (i.e. developments in Asia, India, the Near East, Africa, Latin and North America), while at the same time conveying a European viewpoint on these events. In this respect, the target readership comprises those (including Americans and Asians) interested in more than merely legal developments in the USA.

    We make no compromises with regard to the scholarly nature of the journal. This commitment is the aspect that separates IIC from a host of other journals on the topic. However, the communication of our content consistently maintains a reference to practice. Thus, it is not the average lawyer who is targeted, but the specialist who has an interest in scholarly debate.

    IIC’s central feature is high-quality articles with a firm theoretical foundation submitted from experts around the world. IIC also prints reports and opinions on IP and competition law events and issues occurring around the globe. In addition, we translate and publish the most important decisions from jurisdictions worldwide (including non-mainstream jurisdictions), providing our readers with a unique service found almost nowhere else.

    Finally, IIC looks back on a more than 40-year history of publication. Each volume builds on this tradition of academic excellence. Our established foundation provides a unique basis upon which our readers are able to research and explore coming developments in IP and competition law in the decades to come.
