STN Adds Canadian Patent Full-Text Database - CANPATFULL

September  24th,   2011

As of September 24, 2011, STN has added the CANPATFULL database, which provides the full text of Canadian patent applications and patent specifications from 1920-present. The Canadian Intellectual Property Office is within the top ten authorities concerning the number of patent applications over the past two decades. In recent years, over 30,000 applications were filed annually.

CANPATFULL database records contain detailed bibliographic data, legal representative information, international and European classification codes (IPC and ECLA/EPC), abstracts and the full text of descriptions and claims. Database records for patents published in French have, in addition to the original French document, a human-translated English abstract and machine-translated English claims and description. Each record contains all documents published for one application, displayed in order of appearance. Legal status data and family display formats from the INPADOCDB database are available as well as the searchable online thesauri for the International Patent Classification (/IPC) and European Patent Classification (/EPC and /ICO). CANPATFULL is updated weekly and comprises a total of about 2 million records.

For additional information about this new database, refer to the STN Database Summary Sheet or STNGuide (=> s CANPATFULL/DBN).
