World patent information--the first 25 years
The history of the journal is traced, from its inception in 1979, on a range of key topics, mainly by reference to facts, figures and graphs on the proportion of articles each year, and by listings of the titles of some typical articles. Topics covered are classification, online databases, CD-ROM databases, the Internet and e-filing, intellectual property and industrial property information dissemination, libraries, and patent analysis and statistics. The coverage of trademark and design information retrieval is highlighted, together with legal and policy matters, patent information articles concerning specific technologies disclosed in the patents, and the geographical distribution of articles, authors and subscribers. The editors and publishers, and the main authors and their output, are also covered.
