International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law (IIC)

The International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law (IIC) is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition. Founded in 1970, IIC is one of the most respected journals in the fields of intellectual property and competition law, presenting contributions with the highest standards of academic research.

IIC publishes research on the most significant developments in IP and competition law from around the world. Our aim is to provide a European perspective on these important topics to an international audience.

The journal adopts a multidisciplinary approach and offers a platform for opposing ideas, providing for rich debate on a host of current IP and competition law issues.

The journal’s central feature is high-quality authored materials including articles, editorials, opinions, reports, case notes and book reviews. We also translate and publish the leading decisions from jurisdictions worldwide, including many non-mainstream jurisdictions.

The quality of IIC is grounded on a more than 50-year history of publication. Each volume builds on this tradition of academic excellence. Our established foundation provides a unique platform upon which our readers are able to research and explore emerging developments in IP and competition law in the decades to come.

Instructions for Authors

See Instructions for Authors


Republication Policy

Upon request, contributions may be republished in print elsewhere, provided it is made clear that the contribution has first been published in IIC and full and correct reference data are cited (volume, page, year). In order to obtain authorisation, please contact IIC’s Legal Managers.

SSRN and other similar online databases may be used as preprint media for contributions prior to their publication in IIC.

However, once the contribution is published in IIC (“Online First”), it must be removed for a period of two years from all online media on which it has been made accessible. An abstract of the contribution may remain online, as long as it indicates IIC as the source where the full text version may be retrieved.

Authors are entitled to make contributions available on their homepage, provided this is a strictly personal homepage, i.e. not a homepage administrated by an academic or educational institution (where the contribution is deposited in the electronic repository of the institution concerned).

Once the two year exclusivity period has elapsed, contributions may be (again) made available on SSRN and other similar online databases as well as institutional websites.
