LexisNexis TotalPatent Provides Direct Links to Elsevier Journal Abstracts
LexisNexis announced that its LexisNexis TotalPatent service is the first patent research service to provide users with direct links to abstracts of non-patent journal articles from Elsevier’s SciVerse Scopus database—offering them a more complete view of the information, news, and trends related to patent issues they are managing.
TotalPatent is a web-based patent research, retrieval, and analysis service, powered by the world’s largest collection of searchable full-text and bibliographic patent authorities. TotalPatent users now have direct links from search results to article abstracts from more than 18,000 titles worldwide through Elsevier’s SciVerse Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database containing both peer-reviewed research literature and quality web sources. LexisNexis and Elsevier are both part of Reed Elsevier.
Other enhancements to TotalPatent include:
- Links directly to Chisum on Patents, the world’s foremost authority on U.S. patent law
- Integration with Bizint—users can now export records from their TotalPatent work folders into Bizint Smart Charts for Patents
- Assignee name normalization—the names on millions of patent records from assignees in various countries are now normalized into searchable English text
- Enhanced interfaces for the semantic search option with drag and drop functionality for easier manipulation of the concepts returned
