Patent Analytics publishes high-quality research on patents and the patent system: fostering our understanding of patents, advancing methodologies, demonstrating and evaluating effectiveness and efficiency, and addressing issues in the system and proposing potential solutions. The specialty section provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers in disciplines ranging from computer science, engineering, technology and innovation studies, and management science; and a transdisciplinary one for researchers and practitioners in business and policy sectors.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
• Technological trends and patent analytics
• Patent search and benchmarks
• Patent portfolio and R&D management
• Patent pools and standardization
• Strategic planning with patent analytics
• Legal, technological and economic aspects of patents
• Patentability and technological distance
• Claim structure and patent protection
• Patent infringement
• Patent strategy and patent value
• Patent citation and knowledge spillover
• Science linkage and innovation
• Technology acquisition and open innovation
We do not limit our focus to patents, but also on other intellectual property rights, including designs, utility models, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets, amongst others. We also welcome case analyses on cutting-edge technological issues which have practical and managerial implications for strategic planning.
