Research Disclosure in E.U. Patent System

Defensive-type publications which are published, often anonymously, to give companies and inventors “freedom of use” rather than legal protection. Once research disclosures are published the invention described cannot be patented.

Academic and Educational Research

Research promotes the advance of a field of knowledge through ‘unrestricted questioningÂ’ by ‘individuals doing the damndest with their minds, no holds barredÂ’ (P. Bridgeman, New Vistas for Intelligence, in PHYSICAL SCI & HUM. VALUES 144, 145 (E.P Winger ed., 1947)).

Research is lightly defined as ‘something that people undertake in order to find out things in a systematic wayÂ’, to increase or aument ‘their knowledgeÂ’ (M. SAUNDERS ET AL., RESEARCH METHODS FOR BUSINESS STUDENTS 4-5, 2007).

The OECD approach to ‘research and experimental developmentÂ’ noted the creativity, originality, and systematic activity as a medioum to reach the worldÂ’s ‘stock of knowledgeÂ’. (OECD, FRASCATI MANUAL: PROPOSED STANDARD PRACTICE FOR SURVEYS ON RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENTAL DEVELOPMENT 30 (Paris, OECD, 6th ed. 2002)).

Fields of Research: Law

The Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC) classified research according to type of activity, research fields, courses and disciplines, and socioeconomic objectives. In the classification, most legal research is included within the category of ‘Applied ResearchÂ’.

Under Fields of Research appears the section or “Divison 18 LAW AND LEGAL STUDIES”, which covers law and legal studies and has three groups of subsections:

The Exclusions from the above Division are the following:

  • Criminology, including policing and correctional theory, is included in Group 1602 Criminology (see below).
  • Legal ethics and human rights and justice issues are included in Group 2201 Applied Ethics.
  • History and philosophy of law and justice is included in Group 2202 History and Philosophy of Specific Fields.

The criminology group has seven fields:

  • 160201 Causes and Prevention of Crime
  • 160202 Correctional Theory, Offender Treatment and Rehabilitation
  • 160203 Courts and Sentencing
  • 160204 Criminological Theories
  • 160205 Police Administration, Procedures and Practice
  • 160206 Private Policing and Security Services
  • 160299 Criminology not elsewhere classified

Exclusions of the criminology group are:

  • Forensic statistics is included in Group 0104 Statistics.
  • Forensic chemistry is included in Group 0399 Other Chemical Sciences.
  • Forensic biology is included in Group 0699 Other Biological Sciences.
