At Nomos Publishing we see the opportunities Open Access offers for the promotion of research. We believe that in times of Open Access, professional publishing houses play an important role in guaranteeing that high-quality research is published and disseminated in a way that scholars as well as the general public get access to these publications. We therefore support Open Access publishing and, in cooperation with authors and librarians, are looking for ways to develop sustainable Open Access publishing models.

Peer review info

All our academic books are subject to a thorough review process and dissertations or other theses must have been graded with the highest marks. To maintain the high quality standards of our publication program, only dissertations that have received at least magna cum laude honors are considered for final inclusion. After reviewing the evaluations of the dissertation, we decide together with the author which publication series would provide the best fit. We then forward the necessary documentation to the editors of the series, who make their decision about whether to include it via a peer review process. This elaborate procedure ensures that we issue only particularly worthy dissertations – and underscores the fact that the inclusion of a work in our program represents a further validation of its quality.

Most of our books are published within series that are edited by experienced scholars. The series’ editors are in charge of developing the overall concept and structure of the series and they review the manuscripts submitted. To ensure that the published works meet the required standard of quality, the series’ editors or the publisher may rely on external reviews by leading scholars in each respective field. These editors always ensure that reviewers are unbiased and qualified. The final decision regarding publication lies with Nomos’ editors. Nomos’ editorial staff usually have an academic background related to their respective field of editorial work.

Our editorial process and reviewing guidelines are made transparent for authors and reviewers. We aim to build trusting and long-term relationships with both our authors and the editors of series and journals. If any conflict of interest emerges, we will strive to resolve the conflict immediately.

To safeguard good scientific practice, every author is required by his/her publishing contract to comply with the rules stipulated by academic institutions.

Abstract

Biopatents frequently disclose sequences of polypeptides and nucleic acids in the written description. The claims often cover a homology range surrounding the disclosed sequence to get a broader protection. However, homology claims face a hurdle that they may lack support by the written description. The Supreme Court of China ruled that homology claims lack support, but a further limitation by species of origin satisfies this requirement. This study explains that homology per se should have formed the essence of such disputes. Homology dictates the skilled person

Abstract

In today's seemingly globalized world, but full of rivalry between nations, races, and religions; confronted with different worldviews, ideologies, values and interests; the chances of peaceful co-existence seem to be rare. This work however envisages possible coexistence through a pedagogical approach of. Today's global challenges have prompted the call for global values despite the heterogeneity of humanity. The prospect for such values must begin with a kind of 'value-mental-set', aimed at uniting the different kinds of humanity irrespective of colour, race, language, culture, religion or nationality of the individual. The route to the ""promised Land"" calls for human solidarity based on sustainable justice, partnership and friendliness; which takes cognizance of gender as well as intergenerational solidarity. Every child, as the human survival guarantor, in his identity- development and dignity must be taken on board and equipped with a mental-set to 'live and let live' - encapsulated in an intercultural pedagogy of recognition and respect.

Abstract

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaced the old and battered Data Protection Directive on 25 May 2018 after a long-drawn reform. The rapidly evolving technological landscape will test the ability of the GDPR to effectively achieve the goals of protecting personal data and the free movement of data. This book proposes a technological supplement to achieve the goal of data protection as enshrined in the GDPR. The proposal comes in the form of digital identity management platforms built on blockchain technology. However, the very structure of blockchain poses some significant challenges in terms of compatibility with the GDPR. Accordingly, the claim of GDPR being a technologically neutral legislation is examined. The compatibility of a blockchain-based solution is scrutinised on the parameters of data protection principles like accountability, data minimisation, control and data protection by design in conjunction with the right to be forgotten and right to data portability.

Abstract

The two-volume publication is one of the first attempts to systematically address both international climate change law and global climate change governance. It deals with international law and the multiple regulatory regimes reflecting fragmentation in the absence of a universal climate change regime. International climate change law, global climate governance and diplomacy are interrelated and extremely complex: The publications explore these areas from a variety of doctrinal, transdisciplinary and thematic perspectives.

Abstract

This book looks into the nature and status of Community collective marks and explores to what extent they can incorporate certification marks under the current European trade mark law. Welcoming the proposal for a new European Trade Mark Regulation in 2013, the study argues that the two genres should be distinguished from one another, serving distinct purposes. Further, the significance and role of Geographical Indications under the European Union Law are addressed, as well as the question of whether they need to be kept as a separate regime. Although the advantages of each sign are obstructed by discrepancies in terminologies and confusion in legal theory and practice, the author examines the potential of each system by analysing the CTMR as it stands and the OHIM practice, comparing them to national legislations and elucidating the intention of the European legislator.

Abstract

Intangible Assets such as brands and other intellectual property (IP) are highly contextual and unique. There exist hardly any functioning market mechanisms for IP. For these reasons, IP valuation for strategic and prognostic, i.e. future-related, purposes is highly complex. This work aims at making a contribution to facilitate better handling of this complexity. It therefore firstly illuminates basic aspects of value which apply to all IP, before specifics of trade marks and brands are dealt with. The introduction of a new approach to IP valuation as well as an overview of legal dimensions of brand value constitute further key aspects of the work.

Abstract

With the advent of a global community, which draws its sustenance from the unfettered communication of ideas and expression, it is worth reflecting on the role of copyright law and considering whether the existing legal frameworks of copyright in Europe have the capacity to meet the changing needs of a new generation who have given a whole new meaning to the term ""creativity"" and to that of ""original expression."" This book considers the prevailing tension between the competing values of copyright, the freedom of expression, and the right to information. It also looks at the possibility of introducing a public interest exception to the copyright framework of the European Union as a means of resolving the existing discord, along with a comparative survey of the developments presently taking place in the jurisdictions of France, Germany, and the UK.
