Database News

CA/CAplus: New format for Korean patent application numbers increases consistency, saves time

Numerous Korean patent application numbers (/AP) and priority application numbers (/PRN) in the CA/CAplus family of databases formerly consisted of six digits. A new seven-digit format has been adopted to ensure conformity among the CA/CAplus family and other important STN databases.

The new format contains a zero (0) inserted immediately following the 7, which is always the first of the seven characters in the serial number (see example below). This change applies to 90,000 Korean application numbers and to approximately 3,000 priority application numbers in patents from 1999 to the present.

The new format will make crossover searching easier and will save you time by ensuring that patent number crossovers among STN patent databases are comprehensive.

Format for Korean Patent Application Number and Priority Application Number:
Previous format: KR YYYY-7nnnnn (e.g., KR 2000-710051)
New format: KR YYYY-70nnnnn (e.g., KR 2000-7010051)

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


INPADOCDB/INPAFAMDB: Promotional offer

To show the superior quality of the INPADOC files INPADOCDB/INPAFAMDB on STN, FIZ Karlsruhe is offering to STN customers and interests a promotional offer for setting up SDIs free and receiving SDI results free of charge for a month. Search requests need to be at FIZ Karlsruhe until December 15, 2010.

After the test period of one month the profiles (SDIs) will be transferred to your STN login ID at no charge unless you object via e-mail to the Help Desk at FIZ Karlsruhe helpdesk(at)fiz-karlsruhe.de no later than January 10, 2011.

If you want to participate in this program please fill out the order form or contact the STN Help Desk.

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


MEDLINE: Search an additional 46,850 records with MEDLINE backfile extension to 1946

Now you can search an additional 46,850 bibliographic records recently added to the MEDLINE backfile, extending its coverage to 1946.
 
NOTE: None of these backfile records supplied by the National Library of Medicine (entry date /ED of 20101000) included abstracts. You may encounter a small number of existing publication-year 1946 MEDLINE records that do contain abstracts, but those records were not part of this enhancement.

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


USPATFULL, USPAT2, USPATOLD: Removal of Pre-IPC 8 data fields streamlines displays

USPATFULL, USPAT2, and USPATOLD displays have been streamlined through the removal of Pre-IPC 8 fields (ICM, ICS, ICA, and ICI) from the following pre-defined display formats:

  • STD/STD.EX/ISTD
  • ALL/IALL/DALL
  • MAX/MAX.EX/IMAX/IMAX.EX/DMAX
  • IND
  • SCAN

Note: You can still use these Pre-IPC 8 fields when searching and/or custom-displaying information from Pre-IPC 8 patents (those published in 2005 and earlier).

Similar changes have been implemented recently in CA/CAplus. MARPAT, and CASREACT. For additional information on the Pre-IPC 8 reform, visit www.stn-international.de/sum_sheets.html page.


WPINDEX/WPIDS/WPIX: Malaysia - new patent authority in DWPI

With the inclusion of patent content from Malaysia, publications from an additional patent issuing authority are now available in DWPI. We have now loaded the granted patents from Malaysia that were published on 15th January 2010. This new content started appearing in product from DWPI Update 201075.

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

Take Note

PROUSDDR and SYNTHLINE scheduled for removal December 31, 2010 by request of Prous Science

For your planning purposes, please note that on December 31, 2010, the PROUSDDR and SYNTHLINE databases will be removed from STN at the request of the database producer, Prous Science.
