The novelty of a patent may be seen as those patterns that distinguishes it from other patents and scientific literature. Its understanding may serve for many purposes, both in scientometric research and in the management of technological information. While many methods exist that deal with a patent’s meta-information like citation networks or co-classification analysis, the analysis of novelty in the full text of a patent is still at the beginning of research and in practice a time-consuming… 
Constructing Patent Maps Using Text Mining to Sustainably Detect Potential Technological Opportunities
TLDR
This study proposes a visualization method that supports semantics, reduces the number of dimensions formed by terms, and can easily be understood by users, and also proposes a WSD method to decrease the calculated degrees of distortion between terms.
Finding frugal patent candidates: testing a thesaurus-based process model in the field of small household appliances
Purpose Identifying ideas for frugal innovations could substantially support engineers and managers in their work. Patents may be a promising source of ideas for frugal innovations. The purpose of
Structural decomposition of technological domain using patent co-classification and classification hierarchy
TLDR
The method identifies sub-TDs at the different levels of technological hierarchy within the TD based on the characteristics of patent co-classification and classification hierarchy to show the hierarchical structure of a TD.
FRUGAL INVENTION CANDIDATES AS ANTECEDENTS OF FRUGAL PATENTS — THE ROLE OF FRUGAL ATTRIBUTES ANALYSED IN THE MEDICAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
TLDR
The approach deepens the understanding of frugality by providing an appropriate assessment based on a newly developed frugal thesaurus that sheds light on the moderating role of fungal attributes to qualify a frugAL invention candidate as afrugal patent.

This paper intends to outline the process of measuring textual patent similarity on the basis of elements referred to as ‘combined concepts’ and use this process in various operations leading to design decisions, and provide guidance regarding these decisions.
Finding nuggets in IP portfolios: core patent mining through textual temporal analysis
TLDR
This paper addresses the unique patent vocabulary usage problem, which is not considered in traditional word-based statistical methods, and proposes a topic-based temporal mining approach to quantify a patent's novelty and influence.

Inventions shaping technological trajectories: do existing patent indicators provide a comprehensive picture?
TLDR
The findings show that the use of multiple, complementary indicators provides the most comprehensive picture, and it is clear that ex-post indicators reflecting impact and value outperform ex-ante indicators reflecting the nature and novelty of the invention in terms of precision and recall.
Measures for textual patent similarities: a guided way to select appropriate approaches
TLDR
A segmented approach to the measurement of underlying variables, similarity coefficients, and the criteria-related profiles of their combinations is lined out, leading to a guided way to the application of textual patent similarities, interesting both for theory and practice.
