DATABASE NEWS

1. CA/CAPLUS - CAS DEFINITION OF BASIC PATENTS EXPANDED

CAS definition of basic patents has been expanded to ensure comprehensive access to substance and sequence information.

Beginning July 1, 2008, both the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) application and its original national equivalent(s) with oldest priority, from the U.S., Germany, Great Britain, France, Canada, and/or the EPO, are being covered as basic patents in CA/CAplus.

If the first national application with oldest priority was filed in a country other than those listed above, then CAS' traditional rule, that the basic is the first patent to arrive at CAS, will apply.

Extensive subject and substance indexing is added to chemistry-related basic patent records in CA/CAplus. With the new expanded definition of a basic patent, the number of patents eligible for basic patent analysis will increase, enhancing overall coverage of chemical substance information in CAS databases, including CAS REGISTRY. Approximately 7,500 additional chemistry-related patent records will be added to CA/CAplus in 2008.

The Database Summary Sheets are available in STNGuide and on the Web on our Database List.

 

2. CA/CAPLUS/CASREACT/IFI DATABASES/USPAT - MORE FLEXIBLE PATENT NUMBER SEARCHING

CA/CAplus, CASREACT, and IFI and USPAT databases have been enhanced for more flexible patent number searching.

United States (US) and World Intellectual Property Organization (WO) patent number searching has been enhanced in the following databases:

  • CA/CAplus
  • CASREACT
  • IFICDB
  • IFIPAT
  • IFIUDB
  • USPATFULL
  • USPAT2
  • USPATOLD

US patent numbers can now be searched with or without commas and/or spaces. WO patent numbers can now be searched with or without slashes, commas, and/or spaces and with two- or four-digit years.

The enhancement has also been applied to HCA/HCAplus, LCA, LCASREACT, and ZCA/ZCAplus.

The Database Summary Sheets are available in STNGuide and on the Web on our Database List.

 

3. CA/CAPLUS - ENHANCED WITH PAGE IMAGES FROM 1967-1998

Page images from the 1967-1998 issues of printed Chemical Abstracts (CA) have been added to the corresponding records in CA/CAplus. With this enhancement, CA page images are now available for all CA/CAplus records from 1907-1998. To view CA page images in CA/CAplus, include PAGE in your display command:

=> D L1 BIB PAGE

The Database Summary Sheets are available in STNGuide and on the Web on our Database List.

 

4. CAOLD - TO BE DISCONTINUED ON DECEMBER 31, 2008

CAOLD (and HCAOLD) will be discontinued and removed from associated database clusters.

November 22, 2008 - removed from database clusters

December 31, 2008 - removed from STN

Content previously available only in CAOLD and HCAOLD is now available in CA/CAplus and HCA/HCAplus, respectively. To learn more about the options available for transferring saved search queries and answer sets to CA/CAplus and HCA/HCAplus, contact the STN Help Desk at:
http://www.stn-international.de/help_desk.html

 

5. CAPLUS - CURRENCY FOR KOREAN PATENTS ENHANCED

CAplus currency has been enhanced for patents from the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO). Bibliographic information and abstracts are now available 14 days from the date of publication or date of availability. When the publication date on the patent document is significantly earlier than the date the patent is made publicly available by the patent office, the date of availability may be used as a date of disclosure.

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

 

6. INPAFAMDB - THE INTERNATIONAL PATENT FAMILY DATABASE

Add the missing piece to your patent prior-art search with INPAFAMDB, a bibliographic patent family database, covering the full spectrum of patent technologies for 81 issuing authorities, dating from the early 1800s. The database features a one-record-per-patent-family file design to provide maximum multi-file prior-art synergy with CAplus and the Derwent World Patents Index (DWPISM) on STN.

7. THE REACH DIRECTIVE - WE PROVIDE RELIABLE DATA

In 2007, the EU launched a new regulatory framework for the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals - REACH.

An excellent source of the required data on chemical and physical properties, toxicity, ecotoxicity, and the impact of chemicals on the environment are the databases on STN International.

8. STN VIEWER PERFORMANCE IMPROVED

STN Viewer performance has been improved. Documents now load much faster to the Patent Queue and overall responsiveness is improved, particularly when you sort and filter documents in the Patent Queue and Projects.

Several changes have also been made to the STN Viewer interface:

  • Documents now display 25 at a time in the Patent Queue and Projects.
  • A more informative progress indicator is now available during document import to the Patent Queue.
  • A cost notification now appears before you incur project sharing costs.
  • In addition to the title, patent country, kind code, and source database, the publication year is now provided for all documents in the Patent

Queue and Projects as an additional way for you to determine relevance.

In documents that you have displayed, the numeric portion of the patent number is also provided.

In addition, STN on the Web has been enhanced with a new STN Viewer Assistant that allows you to send full-text patent documents from STN on the Web answer sets to STN Viewer.

9. DGI ONLINE-TAGUNG UND FRANKFURTER BUCHMESSE

Bei der diesjährigen Online-Tagung der DGI vom 15. bis 17. Oktober 2008 auf der Frankfurter Buchmesse dreht sich alles um die Verfügbarkeit von Informationen. In neun Sitzungen informieren Fachleute über ihre Überlegungen und Projekte zur Sicherung der Verfügbarkeit von Daten und Informationen am Wissenschaftlerarbeitsplatz und in Unternehmen. Anwendungsbeispiele mit neuen technischen Lösungen werden ebenso behandelt wie die Themen Sicherung beruflicher Kompetenz, Qualitätsbewertung, tragfähige Kooperationsmodelle oder Wettbewerbsbeobachtung.

Die 30. DGI Online-Tagung und 60. Jahrestagung der DGI stehen unter der Schirmherrschaft der Frankfurter Oberbürgermeisterin Petra Roth. Den Festvortrag wird die Geschäftsführerin von FIZ Karlsruhe, Sabine Brünger-Weilandt, halten.

Das DGI-Tagungsprogramm wird flankiert von diversen Veranstaltungen, die sich an speziellen Teilnehmerinteressen orientieren. Patentspezialisten treffen sich am Nachmittag des 15. Oktober beim "STN Erfahrungsaustausch Patente" in Halle 4.0, Saal Europa 2. Diese Veranstaltung bietet die Möglichkeit, sich über Neuigkeiten im Bereich Patentinformation bei STN zu informieren. Das genaue Programm finden Sie unter
http://www.stn-international.de/ep2008_frankfurt.html

Die Kooperation mit der Frankfurter Buchmesse ermöglicht den kostenfreien Übergang zur Messe und insbesondere den direkten Besuch und Erfahrungsaustausch mit über 500 Anbietern der Informationsbranche in der Halle 4.2. FIZ Karlsruhe präsentiert STN International und seine weiteren Dienste an Stand K432. Auf dem Digital Market Place sind auch softwaretechnische Neuerungen und eine Vielzahl von Entwicklungen rund um das Elektronische Publizieren zu finden. Das DGI-Tagungsprogramm berücksichtigt dies mit Zeitfenstern für den Besuch.

Der NewComer-Tag für Studierende, Auszubildende und Berufseinsteiger findet diesmal am Eröffnungstag in Halle 4.2. inmitten der Aussteller statt. Einige Vorträge werden im Forum Wissenschaft präsentiert werden.

Traditionell treffen sich im Rahmen dieser Jahrestagung auch die Fachgruppen und Arbeitskreise der DGI mit eigenen Programmen oder zum Erfahrungsaustausch. Mit dabei sind 2008 Senioren-Experten, die am Stand der DGI im Digital Market Place anzutreffen sind.

Alle Informationen zur Tagung finden Sie auf der Website der DGI unter:
