Research Studies

In essence, an Article One Study is a request for information.  Researchers submit the requested information to a Study for a chance to earn the stated Reward.

The information you may submit varies depending on the type of research the Study requires.  Whether it is prior art related to a particular patent or patent claims mapping to a technology standard, the required information is described fully in the Study page.  Researchers may read the full Research Requirements and submit their responses through the Study page.
