In a rapidly evolving technical and IP landscape, companies seeking protection for emerging innovations must continually monitor new developments that can pose critical threats to their patent portfolios. Keeping a close eye on changes to pending applications from competitors, legal action on related similar patents, emerging prior art, and new publications is a critical practice for those seeking to stay competitive, speed up innovation, and minimize litigation risks.

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.
