Range of Content

International Data Privacy Law connects your powerful ideas with the widest audience to give your research the greatest possible impact. It publishes four issues per year, comprising a wide range of article types, namely research articles, advance articles, survey articles, and book reviews. This way you can choose the format you find most appropriate to communicating your findings.

Articles will have a focus on points of law, but may also, where appropriate, include discussion of the economic implications of the law, of policy and regulatory matters, and of the technical architecture of privacy.

Advance access publishing means your content will be available online as soon as possible. Once a paper is accepted, the pre-proofed, pre-copyedited accepted manuscript will typically be published online within one week. It will be replaced by a copyedited, proofed version of the paper in an issue.

By publishing in IDPL, your work could be included in these, or in other thematic content collections across OUP’s products. As well as be featured on our dedicated channels @OUPLAW and @OxfordJournals.
