Physics: Finding patents

Finding patents

Search patent databases


Go directly to a patent-issuing authority or the WIPO


Prior art searches

Prior art searches should extend beyond patents to include non-patent literature. Contact me if you'd like some help.


Patenting inventions

McGill community members should visit the Office of Sponsored Research website for information on disclosing an invention and investigating its commercialization potential.
