Based on a series of independent studies conducted by Dr. Anthony Breitzman of 1790 Analytics, IEEE has learned that granted patents cite scientific and the technical literature found in journal articles, conference papers and industry standards. This paper outlines the findings of three studies conducted by 1790 Analytics and discusses the implications for library professionals and members of the scientific and scholarly community. Patent citation analysis is a viable metric to quantify both usage and value of access to scholarly materials at universities, corporations and government research centres.
