Why InnovationQ Plus?

IEEE publications are critical to the patent process – IEEE is cited in patents three times more than any other publisher. Indexing the full text of IEEE publications alongside a comprehensive global patent literature database available gives you a single, integrated solution that accelerates discovery of key insights and time to market.

InnovationQ Plus allows you to:

  • Identify prior art
  • Determine patentability
  • Gain understanding of patent clearance/freedom to operate
  • Analyze your IP’s position in the market
  • Understand and optimize your company’s IP
  • Monetize IP assets
  • Optimize R&D investments
  • Identify industry activity and discover opportunities
  • Assess competitive threats
  • Understand points of differentiation from competitors
  • Evaluate partnership and licensing opportunities
  • Seamlessly navigate to IEEE Xplore to access IEEE full text documents for further review

InnovationQ Plus Features

Patented Semantic Search Platform

Developed by experts in machine learning, the patented search engine allows anyone to find valuable content that is buried deep in complex patent and technical documents, allowing researchers and analysts to efficiently and effectively complete more of the prior art process, increasing productivity.

  • Concept extraction results in more accurate document retrieval that a traditional keyword search cannot replicate.
  • Eliminating the need to use complex Boolean queries to deliver comprehensive results reduces learning curve and saves time. Simply use keywords or phrases, a paragraph, or pages of content to discover highly relevant results and insights.
  • Uniquely tuned for IP to traverse documents that are often complex, contain repetitive information, and are worded to protect through obfuscation.
