Special Committee on Publications

We are tasked with identifying, supporting, and encouraging AIPLA members to write books.  This microsite contains documents to help members interested in writing books understand the process and provide a guide to the steps and effort involved in writing a book.  Committee members are available as mentors and to help provide resources that can help authors in the task of pitching a book idea and actually publishing the book. See http://www.aipla.org/learningcenter/library/books/Pages/BloombergBNABooks.aspx for a list of co-published books with BNA.​

Announcement Description
  

Year three as a committee starts with many publications in process.  Help us build on that success to fill a pipeline of books to jointly publish with BNA to provide AIPLA members a source of IP related reference books. Check our microsite for helpful resources for authors and those thinking about writing a book: http://www.aipla.org/committees/committee_pages/publications/Pages/default.aspx
In the coming year, our mission is to create a robust pipeline of publications for increasing publication revenue, providing educational resources for members, the community, and the public, and providing a robust channel for AIPLA authors to publish.  Please contact any of the committee members if you have any thoughts of becoming an author.  The committee is also there to support authors during all stages of the publication process, including help with new book proposals, manuscript review, mentorship, and as a sound board for new book ideas as well as supplements and updates for existing books.
Please contact any of us with suggestions for books, suggestions for authors, questions about writing books, and for resources to help with writing books.

Our first year as a committee resulted in the identification of several new exciting publications that are in process.  We want to build on that success to fill a pipeline of books to jointly publish with BNA to provide AIPLA members a source of IP related reference books. Check our microsite for helpful resources: http://www.aipla.org/committees/committee_pages/publications/Pages/default.aspx
In the coming year, our mission is to create a robust pipeline of publications for increasing publication revenue, providing educational resources for members, the community, and the public, and providing a robust channel for AIPLA authors to publish.  Resources, both written and human will be provided to support authors during all stages of the publication process, including manuscript review, mentorship, and idea support for initial creation as well as supplements and updates.
The committee members, listed below, are available to help, encourage, and mentor members in writing books and getting them published.  We need the members of AIPLA to contact any of us with suggestions for books, suggestions for authors, questions about writing books, and for resources to help with writing books.  We will take it from there.
