Using Patents to Enhance Your Research

Patents are primary source documents and can supplement the traditional literature searches in your disciplines.

Patents have more detailed information about a technology than any other type of scientific or technical publication. 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.

Learn how to search patents and patent applications and determine the Cooperative Patent Classification that corresponds to your research area.
