Abstract: Scientific researchers usually announce their achievements in conferences, magazines, and patent offices. Our study was initiated to improve the ascending ratio of research article publishing versus invention patent filing. World development relies, amongst others, upon two innovation indicators, the volume of Patent applications and the number of Scientific journal articles. To avoid data inconsistencies for our research, we created a new dataset with e corresponding data from different sources like WIPO, OECD, EU, EPO, and SCIMAGO. All primary external data after our calculations created an externally published dataset. After annual and country data analysis, we found irregularities in specific areas like University commercialization, country-specific drawbacks, possible patent troll pursuit, and unexplained gratification for investments through patenting. These results need further clarification at regional patent offices. Our main target was to raise the applied research country impact through patentability. To achieve it, we propose several specific actions. The homogenization of paper/patent worlds under LATEX; the evolvement of the ”claims” patent document into a lawful Artificial Intelligence supplement; and a Patent Stock Exchange as a Circular Economy sustainable asset. Finally, after wandering around the fascinating world of articles and patents, we came to the political correctness of research publishing. We extend the scientist’s effort in three steps. First, the initial research is published in a Research Magazine. Simultaneously or after a maturity stage, a WIPO patent application must be filed. Finally, as the third step, an ”after-Patent” more mature research again in a research magazine.
