Reload of METADEX – effect on SDIs and saved answers

17. September 2012

METADEX will be reloaded on September 22, 2012. The reloaded METADEX will have many enhancements, including coverage of patent documents, the numeric property search feature and simultaneous left- and right truncation in title (/TI) and abstract (/AB) fields.

The reload will have some impacts on SDI and saved answer sets:

  • The monthly SDI for August will run after the reload. The last update and SDI run was end of July.
  • The monthly SDI for September is expected to run beginning of October.
  • SDIs and saved queries will remain available after the reload.
  • Because the accession number format will change with the reload, SDI history and saved answer sets (except for the query itself) will be lost after the reload.
  • Entry dates of 2012 will be kept, but other backfile records will have new entry dates. If you run a manual profile, please check if this could affect you.

For further information, see HELP RLOAD after September 22 or contact your local STN Help Desk.
