Database News

AUPATFULL: STN adds Australian patent full text file including the new numeric search feature.

AUPATFULL is a new patent full text file on STN as of July 24, 2011. It provides the full text of patent applications and patent specifications published by the Australian Patent Office from 1964 onwards for the complete STN feature set including the new numeric search feature. The Australian Patent Office is within the top ten authorities concerning the number of patent applications over the past two decades. In the past years, over 20,000 applications were filed annually. A relatively large number of publications from the Australian Patent Office have their priority in Asian countries.

The records of the database contain bibliographic data including patent applicant, inventor and legal representative information, patent, application and priority application data, IPC and EPC classification codes, abstract, and the full text of description and claims. Each database record contains all documents published for one application, displayed in order of appearance. Legal status data, family and citations display formats from the INPADOCDB database are available as well as the searchable online thesauri for the International Patent Classification (/IPC) and European Patent Classification (/EPC and /ICO). AUPATFULL is updated weekly.

For additional information about AUPATFULL, refer to the STN Database Summary Sheets or STNGuide.


INPADOCDB/INPAFAMDB: INPADOC databases enhanced with first page images                                     
                  
                                              
The INPADOC databases INPADOCDB and INPAFAMDB have been enhanced with first page images for patent publications of 8 major patent authorities. This new graphical information greatly supports relevance checking of technology search results.                
                                                                
First page images can be displayed with the standard display format GI and several predefined display formats in both INPADOC files. For a list of image display formats and coverage details see INPADOC News 2011/06.

For additional information about these databases, refer to the STN Database Summary Sheets or STNGuide.


INPADOCDB/INPAFAMDB: Delay of German patent coverage        
                                                                      
The European Patent Office informed us about significant delays of the coverage of German bibliographic and legal status data in INPADOC from week 25/2011:
"Due to a complex and unforeseen combination of technical problems we have to warn you that there may be delays or even an interruption in delivery of DE data from week 25/2011. Our technical experts are working on these problems as their top priority. All our efforts are dedicated to ensuring the continued timely delivery of raw data products including DE data. Currently we foresee an interruption of several weeks."      
                                                            
On STN, bibliographic data of German patent publications are also available in the patent full-text database PATDPAFULL and in the value-added databases CAPLUS and Derwent World Patents Index. These databases are not affected and will provide German patent data as usual.

We will keep you informed about further developments.           

For additional information about these databases, refer to the STN Database Summary Sheets or STNGuide.


MARPAT Enhancements Save Time and Increase Usability


Save time in post-search answer review with enhanced query-focused displays in MARPAT. The QHIT and FQHIT display formats have been enhanced to provide more recognizable results by assembling the query-focused fragments. The assembled answers increase understanding for users, while making it easier to share MARPAT information with other decision-makers.

The new assembled displays will be the default for these formats. The SET MPTASSEMBLY command can be used to select ON, OFF or BOTH displays in these formats. SET MPTASSEMBLY BOTH will display the new assembled structure and the old format.

Two new MARPAT display formats, FQHITEXG and QHITEXG, are also being introduced. In addition to the FQHIT and QHIT information, these formats will provide definitions for all unmatched G-groups shown in the answer.  For additional information, see tip 13 (HELP T13).

Additionally, the PNK and PNK.B search fields (Publication Number + Kind code) have been added to MARPAT when in the MARPAT database.

In addition, enhancements to the MARPAT search algorithm have been implemented to increase search precision in CSS (Closed Substructure Search) searches that employ connectivity settings.

CAS REGISTRY Registers 60 Millionth Substance

The 60 millionth substance, a potential antiviral compound, was assigned the CAS Registry Number 1298016-92-8. The substance was discovered by the Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, which is one of the key drug research institutions in China. In the patent application, a team of inventors prepared derivatives of 2-amino-1,3,4-thiadiazine.

WPINDEX/WPIDS/WPIX: DWPI Country Coverage Update

Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI) now also covers patents from Poland and Hong Kong. This brings the number of authorities covered in DWPI to 47, further strengthening the global coverage of editorially enhanced content in the file.

Coverage includes DWPI titles and/or abstracts with CPI/EPI manual coding, and for the Polish content deep indexing (polymer indexing, fragmentation codes and Markush Indexing) where relevant. The first records to be released will be those published in January 2011.

The patent kinds to be included in DWPI from each of these authorities are detailed here.

For additional information about these databases, refer to the STN Database Summary Sheets or STNGuide.

Search Tips of the Month

Searching titles and abstracts in DWPI on STN

DWPI on STN offers several ways in which to utilize the enhanced title and value-added abstract text within the database.  This month discover more about the content and purpose of the DWPI enhanced Title, Basic Abstract, Technology Focus, and Extension Abstract, and how to use appropriate field labels and proximity to make the most of the variety of DWPI text-search options. Follow this link for the full background and search example.

If you are interested in learning more about DWPI on STN, with many search tips, please watch online and/or download the recorded audio/video of the e-Seminar "Introduction to DWPI on STN"
 

Use of numeric operators and unit conversion in REAXYSFILE

In ReaxysFileTM physical properties are available as specific numbers or numeric ranges. This search tip shows you how to use numeric operators and how to change the unit of numeric values.

STN on the Web Enhanced with New Patent Family Assistant and Updated Structure Plug-In


On June 18, 2011, STN on the Web was updated to include a new Patent Family Assistant and an updated Structure Plug-in.

The new Patent Family Assistant is located in the Assistants folder (previously Search Assistants folder) and allows you to:

  • Extract the first member from each patent family: Use this feature to include only a single member from each patent family in your answer set.
  • Remove twin multiple basics from patent families*: Use this feature to manage the multiple basic patent content of a CA/CAplus answer set with the option to retain the:
  • WO basic patent,
  • national basic patent with oldest priority,
  • patent with the oldest application date or
  • patent with the oldest publication date.
  • Customize displays of patent family results: Save time and money by selecting different display formats for the first family member of a patent family vs. equivalents.


Take advantage of improved structure drawing and searching capabilities available with the updated Structure Plug-in (version 8.5).

*This feature of the new Patent Family Assistant is also new to STN.
