The Co-Editors-in-Chief of the Journal of the Copyright
Society of the USA invite academics and practitioners to submit articles for
possible publication in the Journal. Articles may deal with any aspect of
copyright law and may be as brief as 10 pages or as long as 100 pages, single
spaced. We accept submissions year-round.
A significant advantage of publishing in the Journal is the
fact that the readership includes the most prominent copyright academics,
practitioners, and policymakers, both in the U.S. and abroad. In addition, our
relatively quick turnaround and light editing process mean that articles can
reach this wide audience in a timely fashion.
