Numerous technical databases function as search tools for the professional. The following databases represent some of the most important databases for conducting validity or in-depth patentability studies.Certainly, databases can also function as a practical tool for conducting state of the art investigations and sometimes, right to market investigations. Consideration may be given to databases that  provide coverage of patents in selected subject areas whereas the non-patent literature is covered in most of these technical databases. There are numerous additional databases also available for use but not identified in this listing.
