The Association of International Petroleum Negotiators (AIPN) has announced that the Journal of World Energy Law & Business will be published by Oxford University Press, starting May 2008. The new journal will complement Oxford's other journals in the energy and environmental law field including the Journal of Environmental Law.
The Journal of World Energy Law & Business takes a multidisciplinary approach in analysing significant topical issues in the international energy industry from the perspective of commercial, financial, legal, economic, political, environmental, and policy experts. Edited by Professor Thomas Wälde, Professor & Jean Monnet Chair, Centre for Energy, Petroleum & Mineral Law & Policy, the Journal combines academic excellence with a strong industry focus. Coverage will include upstream oil and gas transactions, finance, taxation, regulation, dispute management, alternative energy resources, energy policy and security, and international energy organisations.
The new publishing partnership for the Journal of World Energy Law & Business will result in several key developments, including a new and cohesive online platform for the journal, developed in association with HighWire Press. Members of the AIPN will gain free access to the journal online and will receive a discount on any print subscription they place.
