A publication by Dan Cislo and Michael Anderson regarding the advantages of provisional patent applications in the Post-AIA era was recently featured in the online edition of the highly-ranked Santa Clara High Technology Law Journal [Why International Inventors Might Want to Consider Filing Their First Patent Application at the United States Patent Office & the Convergence of Patent Harmonization and E-Commerce, 30 Santa Clara High Tech. L.J. 555 (2014)]. In 2013, Washington and Lee University placed The Santa Clara High Tech Journal within the top five Intellectual Property Law Journals in the country based on a combined score considering impact factor, journal citations, and currency factor (Outpacing the Stanford and Boston Technology Law Review Journals).
The Journal’s subscribers include worldwide corporations, law firms, and law libraries. In addition, a substantial number of federal courts and state supreme courts are regular subscribers to the Journal, including the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The Journal’s publications have made noteworthy contributions to the resolution of significant intellectual property law decisions, recently receiving mention in the landmark Festo and Bilski decisions by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in 2000 and 2008.
The article by Dan Cislo and Michael Anderson is included in Santa Clara’s current online (http://digitalcommons.law.scu.edu/chtlj/vol30/iss4/1/) and print issue: Volume 30(2014), Issue 4(2014).
