Conducting a comprehensive prior art search in chemistry can be challenging. CAS STNext and its included databases enable these searches through unique indexing, classification systems, and content curation.

This session will examine the various methods used to index and abstract the important information within documents to support more comprehensive prior art searches. We will highlight features such as structure indexing, fragmentation indexing, and various proprietary indexing and classification systems. We will also share how these tools can help you search with confidence.

During the pandemic, the popularity of preprint servers grew because they emerged as the fastest way to share research insights on the detection, vaccination, and treatment of the coronavirus. CAplus currently includes nearly one million publications from a variety of preprint servers.

For IP searches, these publications are normally the earliest source of prior art that is available. However, once the fully peer-reviewed article is published in one of the scientific journals, there is no connection to the preprint publication. This coffee lecture will explore the coverage of the various preprint servers, the type of research published there, and how you can leverage this information in your CAS STNext searches.

CAS STNext® includes clusters, which are collections of databases that group together similar files based on a shared feature or content. These clusters help searchers more efficiently find results in multiple files simultaneously. In this session, we will share an overview of the AGRICULTURE cluster, which contains a variety of databases known to include publications and data relevant to the agricultural field. In this session, we will share tips on how to search using the cluster and highlight the content and coverage of the databases in AGRICULTURE. We will also provide examples showing how searchers might use this data in their search workflow.

Discover an informative webinar delving into the challenges and opportunities of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) on drug discovery teams. Everyone wants to shorten timelines, cut costs, and reduce risk by implementing the silver bullet of AI and ML into their drug discovery workflow, but scientific breakthroughs are only as trustworthy as the data that initiates them.

IP structure searches may have broad descriptions of cyclic systems where the elements, individual rings, or fusion types of rings in the ring system has too many options to be defined in a structure search. Learn how to use the Ring System Data elements in CAS REGISTRY®, specifically built to assist in defining rings using a unique set of search fields.
