Installation

You can get the stable version from CRAN:

install.packages("patentsview")

Or the development version from GitHub:

if (!"devtools" %in% rownames(installed.packages())) 
  install.packages("devtools")

devtools::install_github("ropensci/patentsview")

Basic usage

The PatentsView API provides an interface to a disambiguated version of USPTO. The patentsview R package provides one main function, search_pv(), to make it easy to interact with the API:

library(patentsview)

search_pv(query = '{"_gte":{"patent_date":"2007-01-01"}}')
#> $data
#> #### A list with a single data frame on a patent level:
#> 
#> List of 1
#>  $ patents:'data.frame': 25 obs. of  3 variables:
#>   ..$ patent_id    : chr [1:25] "7155746" ...
#>   ..$ patent_number: chr [1:25] "7155746" ...
#>   ..$ patent_title : chr [1:25] "Anti-wicking protective workwear and me"..
#> 
#> $query_results
#> #### Distinct entity counts across all downloadable pages of output:
#> 
#> total_patent_count = 100,000
