Open Source Patent Analysis Tools

We are working to develop a WIPO manual on open source and free software tools that are useful for patent analysis. The aim of the project is to assist researchers and professionals in developing countries with using patent data. We also think that sharing experiences with analysis tools could benefit the wider patent community. There are a lot of you out there and we would like to ask for your help.  

We would like to gather some information on two questions:

1. What open source or free software tools or commercial tools are you using in your patent analysis work?

2. What is your personal wish list for tools that would make patent analysis easier. 

We have created a short, and we really mean short, survey to help answer these questions. We will share the feedback with the wider community and we would like to ask you to participate with about 10 minutes of your time. Depending on the results we may produce a couple of short follow up surveys to dig in to some of the responses. 

To start off we need your consent to participate.
