International Journal of Technology Transfer and Commercialisation (IJTTC)
Call for papers: Special Issue on: “Technology Transfer and Intellectual Property”
Guest Editors: Professors Cherie Ann Sherman and Phil Anderson, Ramapo College of New Jersey, USA
Intellectual property (copyright, trademark, and patent) rights, once considered the bailiwick of a small group of elite researchers, are now the focus of corporations, universities and many small businesses around the globe. In the US, for example, almost all research universities now patent and license technology and even small colleges are becoming involved in this process. This new focus has fostered the formation of startup companies, generated jobs, and created better relations between educational institutions and their communities.
The goal of this special issue is to investigate, describe, and evaluate the current role IP rights play in facilitating the transfer of technology. With this knowledge, organisations, as well as entrepreneurs, can identify and adopt a strategy to take advantage of IP rights.
