Formatted Abstract/Summary Patent literature represents a vast database of cutting edge science and engineering. There have been about 66 million patents granted across the world. A patent is a 20-year right to exclusively exploit an invention, in exchange for public disclosure of full workings of the invention. Innovators can benefit from this disclosure in several ways: they can build on and enhance previous inventions, and also identify potential partners in the field they are working in. Patent information is well structured and internationally classified.

Recent years have seen the emergence of sophisticated software tools that enable the mining, analysis and visualisation of the information included in patent documents. In 2010, IP Australia conducted a study analysing the patent holdings of 15 Australian universities, including the Group of Eight and selected others. The study provides interesting insights into the size, type and impact of granted patents and patent applications by the universities and their associated entities, including commercial arms (technology transfer offices), spin-out companies and cooperative research centres.
