Pas grand chose pour le moment mais ca vient juste de commencer.


Copyright, a new open-access, peer-reviewed journal led by a renowned
editorial team, seeks papers on all aspects of copyright in the Internet
age. The journal features an extremely rapid review and publication time
while maintaining rigorous standards on the quality of work. Every
effort will be made to have the initial reviewers' decision within two
weeks of submission. The journal focuses on detailed research and case
studies vetted by peer-review; opinion pieces and shorter communications
are also invited and will be accepted at the editors' discression.
Because the journal is open-access, the author retains the copyright to
his or her works.
