Research Disclosure has been the industry standard defensive publication service for over 50 years.  Over that period the service has been used by an estimated 90% of the world's leading companies and has grown to become a significant non-patent literature archive.

 

Publications are charged per page and therefore tend to be short concise descriptions of new inventions which have been purposely put in the public domain to block future patents.  The citation rate is very high more than 10% of Research Disclosure records have gone on to be cited by at least one patent examiner.

 

The entire Research Disclosure archive 1960 to the present day is available online.  All records are full text searchable and include the complete original disclosure image.
