Resource description

Peer-reviewed publications contribute to the value of a biotechnology firm's patents by providing capital markets with a credible signal of the quality of proprietary information. However, intervention in the patent system through peer review of patents will not replicate these benefits and may in fact distort patent users' incentives to gather information about the quality of patents.
