NEW TO STN

1. DEMAS AND EUMAS - NEW TRADEMARK FILES ON STN

Two files on German and European Union ("Community") trademarks, DEMAS and EUMAS, have been introduced on STN. Both files are produced by Wila Verlag. DEMAS (DEutsches Elektronisches MArken-Suchsystem - German Trademarks Search System) covers German trademarks since 1894. Data includes:

  • pending applications corresponding to the German Trademark Bulletin, Part I (Warenzeichenblatt, Teil I); registrations corresponding to the German Trademark Bulletin, Part II and Part III (Warenzeichenblatt, Teil II und Teil III)
  • registrations published since introduction of the new German law on trademarks (i.e., as of January 1, 1995)
  • trademarks of the former German Democratic Republic (DDR)
  • marks not applicable for protection
  • references to applications to European Union (Community) trademarks filed with the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM)
  • references to International Registrations benefiting from protection in Germany

DEMAS contains application, registration and publication data, ownership, the Nice classification of goods and services, the Vienna classification for images, and images. History notes are available as of 1995 and are being updated, providing a concise overview of the legal status of the trademark. Textual information, trademark types, latest legal status information, and headers for the Nice classification, standardized at input, have been translated into English. These fields are searchable and displayable in both English and German. However, free text, notably the goods and services and the (legal) history information, is available only in German.

DEMAS covers German trademarks from the beginning of the trademark system in Germany. The oldest trademark still in force, for the Meissen porcelain manufacture, is from 1875 (application year). The file is updated with applications and registrations every week. SDIs are also available weekly. DEMAS contains currently more than 770,000 records.

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

EUMAS (EUropean community tradeMArks Search system - EU-Gemeinschafts- MArken-Suchsystem) covers all applications for European Community trademarks filed with the Office of Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM), Alicante, Spain, and published in the European Community Trademark Bulletin. By means of one procedural system, the Community trademark grants its proprietor a uniform right valid in all Member States of the European Union. Countries that are not members of the Union cannot participate in this system.

EUMAS contains application, registration and publication data, ownership, the Nice classification of goods and services, the Vienna classification for images, and images. History notes are available and are being updated, providing a concise overview of the legal status of the trademark. All textual information is searchable and displayable in English, French, and German.

EUMAS coverage starts in 1996, when the EU trademark system came into effect. The file is updated at least weekly, and SDIs are available weekly. Currently EUMAS contains over 180,000 records.

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



2. PASCAL - NEW FILE ON STN

Produced by the Institut de l'Information Scientifique et Technique (INIST) of the French National Research Council (CNRF) located in Nancy, PASCAL provides access to the world's scientific and technical literature including physics and chemistry, life sciences (biology, medicine, and psychology), applied sciences and technology, earth sciences, and information sciences. Over 6,500 journals are scanned regularly and over 4,500 of them are abstracted completely by INIST. French and European literature is particularly well represented in PASCAL. About 500,000 new records are added each year. References to theses (mainly French), and to conference proceedings are also included.

The coverage on STN is from 1984 to the present, and includes more than 8.5 million records. Updating and SDI runs are weekly.

PASCAL is mostly in French. Over 75% of documents have an abstract, mostly in French, some in English, and all have an English language title. PASCAL is well indexed to aid subject retrieval in this multidisciplinary file. Several classification schemes are used, and controlled descriptors from a vocabulary of over 80,000 terms are added in English, French, and Spanish. For records in the area of metallurgy, German descriptors are given.

PASCAL participates in the STN Keep & Share Program.

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

 

3. NEW FILE CORROSION

Launched on STN on 17 December 2000, the CORROSION database adds another facet to STN's databases in materials science and technology. CORROSION provides the world's most complete source of information in the area of corrosion science and engineering. The database dates back to 1980 and contains currently more than 85,000 records. Most records have an author abstract. Producer of the database is Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, Bethesda, USA.

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

 

4. NEW FILE SYNTHLINE

Available on STN since 17 December 2000, the SYNTHLINE (Synthline (r) Drug Synthesis Database) file contains the schemes for syntheses for pharmaceuticals currently on the market or under development worldwide. Each record contains an end product with its substance identification, e.g. CAS Registry Number (more than 5,500 synthesis schemes of more than 3,300 pharmaceuticals), generic (drug) name, chemical name, source, highest development status, the synthesis scheme, bibliographic information, and reactants that are part of each scheme. Producer of the database is Prous Science S.A., Barcelona, Spain.

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

 

FILE UPDATES

5. MERGED CEABA-VTB FILE

The producers of the CEABA and VTB databases, DECHEMA e.V., Bayer AG and BASF AG, have merged the two databases into one common file, CEABA-VTB. The new file has been released on 17 December 2000.

CEABA-VTB covers chemical engineering and biotechnology. Currently, the file contains more than 623,700 records. Updating continues on a monthly basis. STN prices for CEABA-VTB are the same as for CEABA and VTB prior to the merger.

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

 

6. AEROSPACE - PRODUCER CHANGE

Cambridge Scientific Abstracts is now the producer:

8. CANCERLIT, LMEDLINE, MEDLINE - NEW RELATIONSHIP CODE

The thesaurus fields for Controlled Term (/CT), Chemical Name (/CN), and MeSH Number (/MN) in these files now include the MeSH 2000 vocabulary. A new relationship code XUSE has been added to the thesauri to allow the EXPAND and SEARCH of previously used (UF) as well as currently used (USE) terms. In addition, USE or UF terms are automatically searched in the /CN and /CT fields. Enter HELP THESAURUS at an arrow prompt in these files for more information.

 

9. CFR - FREE FORMAT ADDED

FREE format has been added to CFR. It contains the same display fields as TRIAL.

 

10. CHEMCATS - REACHES 1 MILLION RECORDS

CHEMCATS has grown to almost 640 catalogues and over 1,055,000 records in 5 years!

During just the past year, CHEMCATS has nearly doubled in size, largely due to the addition of high-throughput screening (HTS) libraries. Substances contained in the screening libraries also are being added to REGISTRY and may result in more than 1 million new registrations.

 

11. DKILIT - NOW PARTICIPATING IN STN KEEP & SHARE PROGRAM

DKILIT is now participating in STN Keep & Share. For a complete list of participating and non-participating files, enter HELP RIGHTS at any arrow prompt or visit the Keep & Share web page at:
http://www.stn-international.de/keep_share.html

 

12. REGISTRY-MORE CHEMICAL NAMES/SYNONYMS BEING ADDED

More chemical names are being added to the CAS Registry file. The names are collected by CAS scientists from the patent and journal literature and include uninverted systematic names, synonyms, and trivial names. Searchers will be able to find substance information more easily and quickly with these additional access points.

 

13. TOXLINE - NO LONGER UPDATED AS OF DECEMBER 31, 2000

As of December 31, 2000, NLM will no longer be updating TOXLINE. It will remain as a static file on STN.

 

14. ENHANCEMENTS TO DERWENT DATABASES INCORPORATED INTO STN ON THE WEB

The following enhancements specific to Derwent databases are incorporated into the latest version of STN on the Web (released in December 2000). Check them out at: http://stnweb.fiz-karlsruhe.de

RELATED RECORDS LINKED IN DERWENT DATABASES

Records that are related in Derwent databases now have hypertext links for Derwent World Patents Index accession numbers. The feature links patent records in BIOTECHABS, BIOTECHDS, CROPU, DGENE, DPCI, DJSMONLINE, WPINDEX, WPIDS, and WPIX. For example, the link for the accession number in WPINDEX, WPIDS, and WPIX records allows the user to easily retrieve records on the same patent in other Derwent databases.

UPLOAD FEATURE FOR BIOSEQUENCE QUERIES

Upload of long biosequences for use in the RUN GETSEQ and GETSIM packages in DGENE (Derwent Geneseq) is now available. The new "Upload Sequence" link is available in the left-hand navigation bar in the Search Assistants folder. The interface leads the user through the upload procedure. After selecting the local ASCII file containing the biosequence, a click of the Upload button automatically starts the Kermit transfer protocol performing the upload.

ENHANCED STRUCTURE PLUGIN

The new version of the Structure Plugin now allows generation of Derwent WPI structures (BCE Chemical Fragmentation Code search queries). The Functional Group Search option and the Refine option are now available. With these enhancements, the Web structure plugin now offers the same functionality as STN Express.

 

FYI

15. FREE STN EXPRESS MAINTENANCE UPGRADE FOR WINDOWS 5.0E, MACINTOSH 5.0C (ENG), AND MACINTOSH 5.0JB (JP) AVAILABLE

This upgrade facilitates the viewing of images from the two new trademark databases, DEMAS and EUMAS. Trademark images are available in JPEG, GIF, and TIFF formats. STN Express has previously only supported TIFF formats. The QuickTime plug-in is required to view JPEG and GIF images in STN Express with Discover! This plug-in is included at no charge in the maintenance upgrade and needs to be installed only once.

The easiest way to uprgrade an existing version of STN Express with Discover! is to use the web menu in the session toolbar.
