New Full-text Database for Korean Patent Publications on new STN

27. August 2014

The new database KRFULL (Korean Patents Full-Text Database) marks the first new database on STN that is implemented on the new STN platform only. KRFULL covers the full-text of patent applications, patent specifications, and utility models published in the Republic of Korea and completes the set of patent full-text databases for the 3 major Asian authorities JPO, SIPO, and KIPO on new STN. The Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) publishes about 200,000 applications annually and belongs to one of the most important patent authorities world-wide.
KRFULL covers KIPO publications from 1978 onwards and currently contains 2.1 million records with bibliographic data, images, claims and descriptions. Titles, abstracts, descriptions and claims are available in Korean and machine translated English. Titles and abstract are replaced by human translated text from KIPO about five months after publication. Patent applicant, inventor and agent names are also available in Korean and English. Each database record contains all documents published for an application, displayed in order of appearance.
