CAS Expands Global Patent Coverage - The Eurasian Patent Organization Becomes 63rd Authority on CA/CAplus

CAS is enhancing its extensive patent authority coverage in CA/CAplus by adding the Eurasian Patent Organization (EAPO). EAPO (country code EA), headquartered in Moscow, is the 63rd authority covered by CAS.

Eurasian patent documents expand CAS' already substantial coverage of the world's major patent authorities. CAS actively continues to expand coverage, particularly from smaller patent authorities which would otherwise be largely inaccessible to many patent searchers.

Coverage of Eurasian kind code B1 is retroactive to February 27, 2007. The B1 kind code covers patents. Eurasian B1 patents are eligible to be covered as basics or added to existing patent families. Approximately 1,700 patents are expected per year, including approximately 420 basic patents.


DWPI Databases (WPINDEX, WPIDS, WPIX) Enhanced with Numerical Property Search Feature

The Numerical Property Search feature in the Derwent World Patent Index (WPINDEX, WPIDS and WPIX) on STN enables numerical searches to be performed for a specific set of physical property data identified within the English text fields.

Search field codes and related text for all physical properties available for numerical property searches have been indexed in the /PHP search field. Details on the newly available search fields and units are listed under HELP NPS. 

For further information, please contact your local STN Help Desk.


RSS Delivery for STN Alerts (SDIs) is Now Available on STN

STN alerts (SDIs) can now be delivered by RSS feeds. New RSS alert delivery on STN:

  • Allows you to easily distribute STN alert results throughout your organization to support critical research and business decisions.
  • Supports your workflow by seamlessly integrating with most commercially available RSS readers and custom applications, such as portals.

To set up a new alert for RSS delivery, just enter RSS as the method of delivery during the STN SDI set-up process. Existing alerts can be changed to RSS delivery using the SDI EDIT command. Alerts being delivered by RSS can also be delivered to specific email addresses simultaneously by including these addresses in the Optional Email IDs section of the SDI set-up. At the completion of the SDI set-up process, you will receive the URL for the RSS feed, which can be accessed by any standard RSS reader to display the results.
