Maro Patent Alerts

Each Tuesday, the US Patent Office publishes 2000 to 4000 patents.  Maro reviews each patent and selects those related to polymer technology.  The Patent Number and Title is copied to Topic Pages on the Maro site with its URL linking it to the US Patent site.  Typically 150 to 300 polymer related patents are found each week.  At present there are more than 20000 patents listed on these Topic Pages since 2001. 

Each day 50 to 100 of the new links are sent via an email message to subscribers.  The subscriber can quickly scan the list.  If there are any of interest, a click takes one to the text version on the US Patent office site.

Maro Journal Alerts

Each week, more than 400 online journals are checked for new issues. When a new issue appears, a link is made to that issue.  An email message is sent to the subscribers with the links to the recent issues.  A simple click takes the subscriber to the issue.  A complete list of recent issues is also kept on the website. It is intended that minutes a day enables the subscriber to review more than 300 polymer journals.

It is a simple matter to copy any link to a special page and keep them for further reference.

The concept behind the Alerts is that of person checking the message --- say --- during morning coffee.  It is intended to be simple and quick.  When finished --- a simple delete removes the message from one's computer.

This service as simple as it seems is not for everyone.  First typically one will receive one or two messages every working day.  That is not good for overloaded mailboxes.  The messages are long but can be scanned quickly.  

Everything related to polymers broadly is included.  It is not focused.  Therefore, one has to plough through a lot of  material to get the useful stuff.  Many days there may be little of interest.

On the other hand, one gets a broad,  birds eye view  polymer technology.  There may be something unrelated that attracts one's attention.  A quick click gives one the details. Many practicing professional like this broad approach in keeping up.  Others don't.  If you do, this service is for you.  If you don't, this service is not for you.
