STN AnaVist is verder uitgebreid met de database EPFULL. Onderstaand de belangrijkste gegevens over deze uitbreiding.
The EPFULL file (European Patents Full Text) has been integrated into STN's powerful interactive analysis and visualization software STN AnaVist.
In addition to the value-added databases, CAplusSM and Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPISM), STN AnaVist now permits analysis and visualization of an extensive range of patent full text data from PCTFULL, USPATFULL, and EPFULL.
EPFULL covers bibliographic data and abstracts for applications and granted patents published by the European Patent Office (EPO) from 1978 onwards. Full text information is present for applications (A documents) published since 1987 and for granted patents (B documents) published after 1991. EPFULL has predominantly English content. Applications can be filed in one of the three EPO languages English, German and French, but more than 70 % of all EPO applications are published in English. In addition titles for all documents are present in all three languages, and English translations for German and French abstracts are almost always available. For all granted patents claims are provided in English, German and French.
EPFULL is a dynamic file. Bibliographic data in EPFULL, e.g. assignee, agent or titles, are updated constantly and hence represent the most current version.
STN® AnaVistTM answers the broad question of "What's out there?" about sci-tech and patent-oriented information. STN AnaVist enables easy, dynamic visualization and analysis of that information, and supports the interpretation of large amounts of data in innovative ways.
The addition of EPFULL complements the patent full-text coverage (US, PCT, EP). From a product marketing point of view, STN AnaVist is now coherent with respect to content and functionality.
To analyze and visualize EPFULL content in STN AnaVist, use STN Express®, Version 8.2 or higher, to create an answer set that includes EPFULL documents. Then use the Save for STN AnaVist wizard to create an .xta file for import into STN AnaVist. Or, create your answer set with STN® on the WebSM and use the new STN AnaVist Assistant which will become available with the EPFULL release.
