Journal Description


Basic information


SCRIPTed is a high-quality, online, international, interdisciplinary and multi-lingual journal of peer-reviewed articles, analysis pieces, case and legislation critiques, as well as commentaries, reports, and book reviews pertaining to law, society, and technologies in the broadest sense. In furtherance of that goal, SCRIPTed's Editorial Board is assisted by an Advisory Board of internationally-renowned experts drawn from the disciplines of intellectual property, information technology, medical law, artificial intelligence, communications law and E-commerce.

As the online journal associated with SCRIPT (the Centre for Research in Intellectual Property and Technology Law, based in the School of Law, University of Edinburgh, and established on 1 April 2002 with generous support from the Arts and Humanities Research Council), SCRIPTed draws on a thriving postgraduate community of students from around the world and benefits from the close ties of that community with the Faculty of Law.

In an effort to maximise the benefits and flexibility of online publishing, SCRIPTed now publishes its peer-reviewed articles and analysis pieces on an ongoing, rolling basis, with contributions being collated into three issues per year (April, August, December). Submissions are invited on any aspect of the relationships between law, policy, society, ethics, and technologies. Further assistance for authors and artists can be found in the Submission Guidelines.
