Asian patent publications on STN – A Case Study
Publication activities in Asian countries have grown dramatically over the last years, contributing more and more patent and scientific literature publications to the worldwide prior art. On STN major patent and scientific literature databases keep up to date with this enormous increase of Asian publications and continuously enhance their Asian coverage and related retrieval functionality. This presentation will give an insight to the high quality patent literature from Asia covered on STN. The case study will instruct you how to perform a comprehensive search for Asian patent publications in STN patent first-level databases (JPFULL, CNFULL, INFULL and INPADOC) and in the value-added patent databases DWPI and CAplus.

Search Strategies at the Interface of Chemistry and Biology: Immunoconjugates
The rapid convergence of the traditionally defined disciplines of chemistry and biology and the content resources in these areas create challenges and opportunities for many types of searches. Immunoconjugates, also known as antibody drug conjugates, embody the marriage of chemistry and biology. CAS REGISTRYSM, CAplusSM, DWPISM and other STN databases offer unique advantages for searching these hybrid complexes: broad coverage of sequences and chemical information, plus subject indexing. Come and learn strategies and best practices for dealing with these challenging searches on STN.
