INPADOC: Delay of German Patent Coverage
The European Patent Office reported delays in providing bibliographic data from Germany. Since update week 25/2012, no current DE-related documents have been loaded into INPADOC. No further information has been provided.
As alternatives, the following STN databases continue to provide German patent data:
- PATDPAFULL, German full-text patent database
- The value-added databases CAplus and Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI)
We will keep you informed about further developments.
