Database News

STN adds Japanese patent full text file – JPFULL

On October 28, 2012, JPFULL was added to STN. The new database contains the full-text of Japanese patent applications, granted patents and utility models in machine-translated English. The Japan Patent Office (JPO) published the highest number of patent applications and utility models of all authorities. In recent years, about 350,000 applications were filed annually.

The JPFULL file contains about 16 million records from application year 1964 onwards. At release date the application years 2006 onwards are available. The remaining years will be continuously loaded backwards, about one application year per week. The file entry banner will inform about the lowest application year loaded.

The records of the database contain bibliographic data including patent applicant, inventor, and patent assignee number, patent number, application, priority, and related application data, IPC, EPC, and ICO classification codes, abstract, and the full text of descriptions and claims. New Records are available about ten days after publication with the complete content. Abstracts are either machine translated or taken from equivalent documents if available. Machine translated abstracts of documents with kind code A are replaced by human translated text from JAPIO about three months later. Titles are machine translated, which are in case of kind code A documents replaced by human translations from JAPIO about three month later as well. Descriptions and claims are always machine translated.

Additionally, the bibliographic fields title, patent applicant(s), and inventor(s) are displayed in Japanese characters; however, these fields are not searchable. Each database record contains all documents published for one application, displayed in order of appearance. Legal status data, patent and non-patent citations, and family display formats from the INPADOCDB database are available, too. Online thesauri for the International Patent Classification (/IPC) and European Patent Classification (/EPC and /ICO) are searchable.Numeric values of 55 physical and chemical properties (/PHP) in about 1800 unit variants are searchable in all full text fields.

For additional information about this new databases, refer to the STN Database Summary Sheet or STNGuide (=> s JPFULL/DBN).

 

MARPAT Backfile Expansion Update

In March 2012, CAS announced that the MARPAT database would be enhanced with English-, German- and Japanese-language patents from 1987. The addition of English- and German-language patents for 1987 is now complete. Processing of English- and German-language patents from 1985 and 1986 and Japanese-language patents from 1987 is continuing. We are pleased to report that Markush information from over 2,600 patent publications has been added to date.

 

INSPEC reaches 13 million records

INSPEC, the leading database for science, engineering and technology research, has reached 13 million records. The 13M milestone has been hit with an important piece of medical technology research. INSPEC is produced by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and provides access to intelligence from across the world with over 700,000 new records added each year and fully searchable archive spanning over 100 years.

Embase’s Emtree Thesaurus Updated

The third update in 2012 to Emtree, the Embase thesaurus, was completed on October 8, 2012. This latest thesaurus version features:

* 220 new drug terms
* 1085 non-drug terms

Many new terms and synonyms were added to Emtree’s devices branch.
Customers running SDIs in Embase may wish to consult the new thesaurus to determine if the search terms in their strategies need to be updated.

Search Tip of the Month

Searching for Non-specific Derivatives in CAS REGISTRY and CA Databases

CAS REGISTRY database, the gold standard for chemical information, contains more than 68 million unique organic and inorganic chemical substances, such as alloys, coordination compounds, minerals, mixtures, polymers and salts, and more than 63 million sequences. Each of these substances contains a unique identifier, known as a CAS Registry Number® (CAS RN). Some CAS RNs include a “D” appended to them in records in the CA databases (CASM/CAplusSM/HCA). These substances are non-specific derivatives of the searched substance in the CA databases. Learn more about Searching for Non-specific Derivatives in CAS REGISTRY and CA Databases.

At Your Command

Remove DUPLICATES in a New Order

The DUPLICATE command can help identify or remove duplicate records appearing in L-numbers within the same or multiple databases. A new L-number is created containing the intermingled results from all databases.

Use SET DUPORDER to specify the preferred record order of appearance in the duplicate L-number.

DUPORDER options include:
  1) DEFAULT – reverse chronological order.
  2) FILE – in database order (determined by entry
      of the L-numbers at the prompt) or by entry
      into the databases.

Add the PERMANENT keyword when using the SET command to retain your DUPORDER preferences beyond the current session.
