Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPISM) and INPADOCDB on STN – The Best of Both Worlds

Derwent World Patents Index and INPADOCDB are two patent family databases that are widely used on the STN platform. This workshop will illustrate how to use these two databases together to increase the comprehensiveness of a search using the unique features found in each database. From the value-add indexing that Thomson Reuters provides for DWPI (including the Derwent Chemistry Resource indexing, Derwent classes and manual codes) to the complementary information found only in INPADOCDB (including additional patent authority coverage, legal status and citation information), using the two databases in concert will provide the searcher with the critical and comprehensive information neither database can provide on its own.
