Technology survey topics (manual topics, aka small topics set)
Technology survey topics readme
Prior art topics (automatic topics, aka large topics set)
As observed during the 2009 campaign, the fact that the above PA-topics set contained a vast majority of granted patent documents (i.e. B kind) might have had a detrimental effect on retrieval, since the references in the search report generally refer to the applications (i.e. A kind documents). We have compiled a new set of topics, where application files are also provided. Unfortunatley, it is not always the case that such a file is available. In particular, for US patents, applications were not published prior to the year 2000. This is why the archive below only has an additional 497 files instead of 1000. Please feel free to use these files to replace the granted patents ones (which are still provided in this archive).
