Our Publications

We have published quite a bit since we started back in 2013. Where you see a link to a Tableau workbook you can head over to the Tableau Public workspace.

All of our published work is available free of charge and all we ask is that you provide an attribution back to the source if you use it.

Most One World Analytics publications can also be found on Paul Oldham’s home page at Researchgate and some of Paul’s wider work is available through Google Scholar citations. You will find direct links to our key publications below.

Upcoming

Paul Oldham has written the WIPO Manual on Open Source Patent Analytics. The Manual was written in Rmarkdown using RStudio and published as an electronic book using bookdown. You can access the ebook from the Github website. We expect the final version to come out in late 2016 or early 2017.

Africa Reports

In late 2013 we published a series of country studies on access to genetic resources and benefit-sharing in Africa commissioned by The ABS Initiative. Each country study follows the same format and reviews patent activity for the specific country involving genetic resources and traditional knowledge. You can download the individual reports below.
