4. FRANCEPAT - A NEW PATENT DATABASE ON STN

As of 29 February 2004, a new patent database, FRANCEPAT (French Patents) will be available on STN.

FRANCEPAT complements the coverage of French patents on STN and provides the most complete picture of patent publications from France.

FRANCEPAT covers all French patent applications and granted French patents published by the Institut National de la Propriété Industrielle (INPI). All patents published in France since 1966 as well as special pharmaceutical patents (Brevets Speciaux Medicaments) published between 1961 and 1978 are included as well as Complementary Protection Certificates from 1969 onwards.

Records include bibliographic, administrative and legal status data for each patent. Abstracts and descriptors are also available since 1978. All records are in French, but English descriptors are available from 1987 onwards for our customers who prefer English terminology and IPC codes for subject searching.

Images of patent drawings are included in records published from 1978 onwards.

Simultaneous left and right truncation is available in the basic index (/BI) and abstract (/AB) fields.

The file presently contains more than 1.03 million records with more than 400,700 images. It will be updated weekly, automatic current awareness-searches (SDIs) will be run weekly or monthly. (Weekly is the default).

FRANCEPAT is produced by Institut National de la Propriété Industrielle (INPI), Paris, France.

The Database Summary Sheet is available in STNGUIDE and on the Web on our Database List.

 

5. WPIDS/WPINDEX/WPIX - DISPLAY LAYOUT WILL CHANGE

As of January 2004 the German application and patent publication number formats were changed in order to provide for an increasing number of publications. STN has adopted these new number formats as they stand and therefore will slightly change the display layout. For an example see STNews 1/2004, p. 31 at
http://www.stn-international.de/fileadmin/be_user/STN/pdf/STNews/news0104.pdf#page=16

An online NEWS will inform you when these changes become effective.

 

6. WPIFV - DERWENT WORLD PATENTS INDEX FIRST VIEW COMING SOON

Thomson Scientific is developing a new companion file for Derwent World Patents Index®. DWPI First View SM will provide fast, alerting access to bibliographic, selected text and author data from new patent documents, within days of publication by major patent issuing authorities. Searching the DWPI and DWPI First View files in tandem will ensure that you get the full picture of DWPI patent coverage. This will be a rolling file, so once the complete, value-added DWPI record is released, the corresponding DWPI First View record will be removed. The file is currently in test phase but will be launched soon - you can access more information and the latest development news at
www.thomsonderwent.com/products/patentresearch/dwpifv/

An online NEWS will inform you when DWPI First View will be released.
