This Topic Collection will publish rewritten patents from technical research articles. Patent descriptions are usually written in complex language; however, this article-type “Patent Summary” provides the opportunity for a simple summary for a research-based audience. The novelty and highlights of a patent should be clearly listed in the abstract, such as the problems that the patent aims to solve, advantages, optimization results, and the significance of the design. Information about the potential applications can go in the discussion. The details of the patents should be written in the section, “Patents”, while the patent rights and content confidentiality need to be listed in the section “Conflicts of Interests”. As a result, this section will be helping researchers to promptly and rapidly understand the contents of specific patents. A peer-review process is required in this section.
