'Voorlopige agenda - STN Patent Forum

Registration, Welcome with Coffee & Tea

10.00 - 10.45
What’s New from STN

10.45 - 11.30
Understanding First-Level and Value-Added Patent Databases on STN (Rob Austin - FIZ Karlsruhe)
For all patent searches with high commercial relevance, it is essential to search all value-added patent databases and complement the results with first-level patent data.
This presentation covers the results of a case study from the pharmaceutical field which directly compares the search results of first level and value-added databases. The analysis clearly demonstrates that the unique patent information of DWPI and the CAS suite of files is indispensible for any business critical search requests.

11.30 - 12.30
The DWPI Editorial Process - How we add value to our patent data (Brian Larner - Thomson Reuters)
This presentation will consist of a brief summary of the main value added features of the DWPI database and a description of editorial processes which creates them. The main points covered will be bibliographic data clean up, the Derwent patent family, how the abstract is produced and how the classification and DWPI manual codes are applied.

12.30 - 13.30

13.30 - 14.00
Added value of the Editorial Process of CAS (Yvonne Pope - CAS)
In the ever changing and demanding world where budgets are under pressure and your managers think everything is free on the internet, how do you sell the benefits of value-added information sources internally? In this session, you will get a glimpse into the life of a CAS Editorial Analyst and the tools they utilize to create a CAS record.

14.00 - 15.00
The Art of ECLA (Rob Austin - FIZ Karlsruhe)

15.00 - 15.15
General discussion - Question and Answers

  • New order option for ePrints, i.e. large quantities of PDF copies of articles available to multiple users.
  • Three new columns in order statistics: Publisher, Publication Place, ePrints Quantity.


Database nieuws

CA, CAPLUS, Citing References toegevoegd.
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.

GBFULL Backfile uitgebreid tot 1855
United Kingdom (GB) Patents Full Text (GBFULL) has added backfile data to 1855. The full text for the complete national patent family is now available.

Before this update, GBFULL covered the complete collection of U.K. patent applications back to 1979, when the U.K. office started publishing applications. Since November 27, 2008, GBFULL updates have included granted patents in addition to patent applications. Now the complete backfile data for granted patents, starting with 1855, has been loaded into the database.


  • New Russian legal status data
  • Loading Chinese legal status back-file data
  • San Marino becomes the 36th member state of the European Patent Organisation
  • Updated Database Coverage

Het uitgebreide nieuws kan hier worden gevonden.

In the German Patents Full Text (PATDPAFULL) database, simultaneous left and right truncation (SLART) has been added to the Abstract (AB), Claims (CLM), Main Claim (MCLM), and Title (TI) fields.

Enhanced bibliographic and sequence information The USPTO Genetic Sequence Database (USGENE) now includes even more extensive bibliographic and text search options for refining U.S. patent sequence searches. From July 2009, USGENE sequence records now include:

  • Priority application information (PRAI), including priority application numbers (PRN) and dates (PRD)
  • U.S. related application information (RLI), including U.S. related application numbers (RLN) and dates (RLD)
  • Calculated patent expiration date (XPD) and patent term adjustment information (NTE, PTA) for issued patents
  • A concise one-line Sequence Description (DESC), for improved efficiency when reviewing search results
The new data fields are all fully searchable and incorporated into the standard display formats BIB, BRIEF and ALL. In addition, the Sequence Description (DESC) field is now part of the free-of-charge TRIAL display format, for even faster relevance checking of USGENE search results. USGENE is the most comprehensive and timely collection of U.S. patent sequences. The database covers all available peptide and nucleic acid sequences from published applications and issued patents of the United States Patents and Trademark Office (USPTO). U.S. patent and published application sequence data are available within three days of publication by the USPTO.
