Enriched Citation API (Version 1)

The Enriched Citation API provides the Intellectual Property 5 (IP5 - EPO, JPO, KIPO, CNIPA, and USPTO) and the Public with greater insight into the patent evaluation process. It allows users to quickly view information about which references, or prior art, were cited in specific patent application Office Actions, including: bibliographic information of the reference, the claims that the prior art was cited against, and the relevant sections that the examiner relied upon. The API allows for daily refresh and retrieval of enrich citation data from Office Actions mailed from October 1, 2017 to 30 days prior to the current date.
