State-of-the-Art Search

Sometimes "State-of-the-Art Search" means different things to different people. What does the "State-of-the-Art Search" refer to here is a search that allows us to grasp what is currently being developed in a given technical field in Japan, China, and Korean. For example, a state-of-the-art search can help a company decide whether to entry into a new technology area, or what are the important market strategies and decisions based on search results. Our state-of-the-art search focus on Japanese, Chinese and Korean based on the assumption that clients have already searched in English.

Our state-of-the-art search covers granted and unexpired patents, published patent applications, and may include non-patent literature surrounding a general or specific technology area per client's request.

The scope of our state-of-the-art search is usually decided after a discussion with our clients so we can cover an area that is broad enough in order to give a complete picture of what is out there, meanwhile to focus on relevant field so the information generate from the search is useful.
