Data Bytes – Using Patents to Enhance Your Research (Zoom)

One of the major functions of the patent system is the dissemination of technical information. “Patent information is a valuable and comprehensive source of technical, commercial and legal information that can be used directly for scientific and experimental purposes…” Patents are primary source documents and can supplement the traditional literature searches in your disciplines: they can be used to discover new areas of research, for ideas to improve existing research, or to see if a product has already been developed
