On July 26, 2009, the CA/CAplus family of databases will be enhanced with new, more convenient access to citing references information on STN®. Citing references information can be used to track records that cite a specific record in CA/CAplus.
New search, display, select, and sort fields:
- OS Citing References Count (OSC.G or alias CITING.CNT) – number of citing references
- Date Last Cited (UPOS.G or alias CITING.UP) – date last citing reference entered STN
- OS Citing References (OS.G or alias OS.CITING.AN) – citing reference accession numbers (not sortable)
New display formats:
- OSG – displays OSC.G, UPOS.G, and OS.G (up to 50 accession numbers)
- OS.GMAX – displays OS.G (up to 1020 accession numbers)
- OSG.MAX – displays OSC.G, UPOS.G, and OS.G (up to 1020 accession numbers)
EPFULL, citaties en afbeeldingen toegevoegd
The European Patents FULL text database EPFULL is enhanced with first page images from European patent applications and references cited by the applicant in the description of European patent applications or granted European patents.
EPFULL covers bibliographic information, full text and legal status information for European patent applications, granted European patents and PCT applications transferred to the European Patent Office (EPO) since the beginning of the EPO in 1978.
The new data elements, first page images and applicant citations, are present for documents which were updated or entered the database after January 2006. The vast majority (>99 %) of these documents has been published after 2000.
First page images are present for European patent applications in TIF format and can be displayed with the display format GI. Several predefined display formats containing images were established, e. g. STDG, ALLG or MAXG.
Patent (REPA) and non-patent literature (RENA) citations given by the applicant within the description of a patent document, have been extracted from the text and are made available for search and display. Relevant citations included under INID 56 on the first page of granted patent documents had already been present in EPFULL . They contain examiner and search report citations. Information from applicant citations are indexed together with INID 56 citations in
- /REN (Referenced Non-Patent Literature),
- /RPN (Referenced Patent Number) and
- /RPC (Referenced Patent Country).
REPA and RENA are included in the MAX and IMAX display formats, and together with the INID 56 citations in the RE display format. REPA and RENA are also custom display fields.
For GI an additional fee is charged for displaying.
REPA and RENA are billed like other bibliographic information in the EPFULL file.
