IEEE Drives New Patents
Today’s corporations continue to deliver new patented technologies at an ever-increasing pace, and by far the most-cited publisher in new patents is IEEE.
Over 270,000 Patent Citations
According to a recent study of patents filed with the U.S. Patent Office from 1997–2012 by the year's 40 top-patenting organizations, IEEE journals and conference proceedings received more than 270,000 patent citations—more than three times the number of citations of any other publisher.
Patent references to IEEE papers have increased 660% since 1997, making IEEE information a key factor in key innovations.
