This Paper seeks to review the articles published in the Journal of Intellectual Property Rights (JIPR) in the second half of the first decade of the twenty-first century from Volume 10(1) (2005) to Volume 14(6) (2009). During this period, a total of seven post-independent enacted IP legislations were in force in the country. This Paper reviews the articles published in JIPR year-wise during the decade. Paper attempts to identify: (i) total number of issues published; (ii) total number of articles published; (iii) total number of contributions made by the Indian and foreign scholars; (iv) total number of sole and joint publications; (v) publishing style of JIPR; and (vi) area of IP covered in each volume.
A review of articles published during this period reveals that the on an average, a total of 44 articles have been published in each volume. In the total articles published between 1996–2009, the articles published during the second half of the first decade of 21st century constitute 52 percent (220 articles) compared to 31.20 percent published between 2000–2004 (132 articles) and 16.78 percent between 1996–1999 (71 articles). JIPR through an open-access platform has provided an opportunity to the IP scholars to publish their writings addressing the gaps in the areas of IP. In the end, Paper develops an argument that JIPR has significantly contributed in the development of IP by disseminating IP information and knowledge, and also in creating IP knowledge and awareness.
