Derwent Innovations Index™ facilitates rapid, precise patent searching, letting you conduct patent and citation searches of inventions in chemical, electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineering.
This resource merges the value-added patent information from Derwent World Patents Index with the patent citation information from Derwent Patent Citation Index. You can use additional descriptive information and coding to discover all relevant inventions and quickly grasp a patent’s significance and its relationship to other patents. Reduce duplication of R&D; track competitors’ activities; detect and avoid patent infringement; identify potential gaps in the marketplace and possible licensing opportunities.
Derwent Innovations Index covers over 14.3 million basic inventions from almost 60 worldwide patent-issuing authorities and creates a unique patent family for every invention to speed discovery All Derwent titles and abstracts are written in plain English, to aid searching across patents issued in other languages, and to make it easy to understand an inventions novelty and claims.

“…an awareness of the patent literature can help academics formulate research questions, find new sources of funding, and most importantly remain in touch with the commercial world and so appreciate when their results are marketable.”
