The Internet Policy Review, the journal on internet regulation published by the Alexander von Humboldt Institute on Internet and Society in Berlin (HIIG) celebrates its first anniversary this week, with a brand new technology platform and CREATe on board as content partners.
In its new form, the Internet Policy Review emphasises short form papers and is designed to facilitate the reading, citation and submission of articles by the research community. To date 32 academic papers and scholarly essays, 59 news pieces and 9 open editorials have been published beneath its banner, with its coverage encompassing issues as diverse as open hardware, copyright in the cloud and the regulatory challenges of digital currencies such as Bitcoin.
CREATe’s partnership will consolidate expertise in intellectual property issues and expand the journal’s legal and social sciences approach to encompass an economics angle, in line with CREATe’s core themes. By combining their efforts HIIG and CREATe see an opportunity for a sustained contribution to European policy while at the same time innovating academic publishing.
CREATe’s contributions will include regular analysis pieces from its academic community, in peer-reviewed journal format as well as commissioned news features and stories authored by CREATe’s post graduate researcher community.
