As today's corporations deliver new patented technologies at an ever-increasing pace, IEEE leads the way in new patent citations, according to a study by 1790 Analytics LLC.
The most recent report examines patents filed with the U.S. Patent Office in 2009 by the year's 25 top-patenting organizations. The report revealed that IEEE journals and conference proceedings received over 125,000 patent citations—more than three times the number of citations from any other publisher.
The current study shows that referencing to IEEE papers in patents has increased 375% since 1997, and that patents which reference IEEE are in turn cited more often by subsequent patents than those that do not reference IEEE.
