Published in 2020 by Edward Elgar, and called “an essential reference guide” by Arizona State University President Michael Crow, this edited handbook offers a comprehensive resource for understanding the pressures and promise of the research enterprise at innovative universities everywhere. Across twenty chapters, written by leading experts worldwide, the book places intellectual property issues in technology transfer in historical and political context while also contextually framing the ever complicating intersection of these domains for innovative universities. This book describes the history and future of how these fields intersect, addressing such questions as “How did we get here?”, “How can universities use patents to further the common good?,” and “How will data and new technologies change our understanding of intellectual property and technology transfer?”

Published in 2019 by Wiley, this two-volume text, now in its 6th edition, is the authoritative treatise in the field of law and higher education.
