Title
¬The function-application relation through a link between classification and indexing
Source
World patent information. 19(1997) no.3, S.167-174
Year

Abstract
The International Patent Classification (IPC) gives a fundamental importance to the distinction between function and application: a distinction which constitutes one of the most important classifying rules for patent documents. Demonstrates, using selected examples, that the distinction between function and application can be advantageously exploited by using both this technical classification and the indexing of scientific databases. In addition, this distinction provides an opportunity to explore one of the multiple paths between the documentary representation of the scientific literature and the documentary representation of the technical literature
