Patent information services
Integrated patent information studies are conducted by any company engaged in the research and development of new products and technologies; among other benefits such studies may allow avoiding duplication of already existing products and solutions.
Ukrainian and CIS countries scientists and engineers are traditionally strong and competitive in many fields of art while information on their research and development works also traditionally is difficult for studying due to existence of majority of the publications in Ukrainian and Russian languages only.
Further, a considerable amount of non-patent publications such as articles, books, and dissertations, while being cited in patent documents and potentially could contain technical solutions of interest, are not available online or in any digitized form. In these circumstances sometimes the only way to obtain them is to conduct a manual search among Ukrainian libraries and other off-line information sources in order to find such publications.
