Using Scival to find Economic Impact

Scival have recently introduced an Economic Impact measure which you can find in the Overview section of the tool.  This uses information from around the world to find patents which cite publications from Swansea University, potentially showing an effect on industry. As there is an 18 month time lag between a patent being applied for and being published it won’t show an effect for very recent publications.

It is possible to filter by patent office so you can look at just the UK, Europe, Japan, US or worldwide.

This recorded webinar has more information about using this feature.

If Scival is new to you, our previous post has links to guides etc.
