(This is less of a question and more an announcement of a resource for researchers. Mods, pls delete if inappropriate.)
This week I announced the general availability of a new dataset: Patent Citations to Science, 1926-2018. It is available at ICPSR: linksplit.io/reliance_on_science.
We report approximately 15 million linkages from patents (1926-2018) to scientific papers (1800-2018). Each linkage has a confidence score and a marker for applicant vs. examiner. Accuracy (false positives) and coverage (false negatives) are reported for each confidence level.
If you use the data, please cite my working paper “Reliance on Science” with Aaron Fuegi: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3331686
This project was possible thanks to the remarkable Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG, https://aka.ms/msracad),
which you should cite if you use the data. We also include a partial redistribution of MAG for all papers 1800-2018.
