[Extension of citation data in KIPRIS]

The Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) has extended the information on citation data in

KIPRIS. Apart from cited documents ("forward citations"), KIPRIS now includes also data of citing

documents ("backward citations"). 

"Cited documents" are references in a search report of patent X to earlier published patents or patent

applications. On the other hand, "citing documents" are patents or patent applications which are 

published later than patent X and include a reference to patent X in their search reports. In KIPRIS,

users can access citation data by clicking on "Details" and afterwards on the tab "citation".

While the section for cited documents ("forward citation") includes references to both Korean and 

foreign documents, the new section for citing documents ("backward citation") includes references to

Korean documents only.
