    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This dataset contains both front-page and in-text citations from patents to scientific articles, as well as &lt;strong&gt;patent-paper&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;strong&gt;pairs&lt;/strong&gt;, through 2021. &amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;If you use the data, please cite &lt;/em&gt;these two articles:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;1. M. Marx &amp;amp; A. Fuegi, &amp;quot;Reliance on Science by Inventors: Hybrid Extraction of In-text Patent-to-Article Citations.&amp;quot; &lt;/strong&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;forthcoming in Journal of Economics and Management Strategy.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/em&gt;(&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;)&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;2. M. Marx, &amp;amp; A.&amp;nbsp;Fuegi, &amp;quot;Reliance on Science: Worldwide Front-Page Patent Citations to Scientific Articles&amp;quot; (2020),&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Strategic Management Journal 41(9):1572-1594&lt;/em&gt;. (&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;strong&gt;)&amp;nbsp;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;


&lt;p&gt;The datafile containing the citations is &lt;strong&gt;_pcs_mag_doi_pmid.tsv.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/strong&gt;DOIs and PMIDs provided where available. Each citation has the&amp;nbsp;applicant/examiner flag, confidence score&amp;nbsp;(1-10), and&amp;nbsp;whether the reference was a) only on the front page, b) only in the body text, or c) in both. Each paper-patent citation also includes the temporal gap&amp;nbsp;and three related measures of self-citation (i.e., was one or more of the inventors on the citing patent also an author on the cited paper).&amp;nbsp;&lt;strong&gt;_reliance_on_science.pdf&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;nbsp;has full details.&amp;nbsp;&lt;strong&gt;bodytextknowngood.tsv&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;nbsp;contains the known-good references for calculating recall.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The datafile containing the patent-paper pairs (PPPs) is &lt;strong&gt;_patent_paper_pairs.tsv&lt;/strong&gt;. These are USPTO only. Each PPP has a confidence score, the count of days between the publication of the paper and the filing of the patent. (If the patent is a continuation of another patent, the filing date of the original patent is used.) Also, when a paper is paired with multiple patents, an indicator variable reports whether those patents are continuations or otherwise identical.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The remaining files redistribute much of the *final* edition of the&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=""&gt;Microsoft Academic Graph&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;(12/20/2021).
