New Patent Look-Up Tool Available on STN Easy

Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS;, a division of the American Chemical Society, has announced the release of Patent Tab, a new feature on the STN Easy site ( According to the announcement, Patent Tab provides fast, easy-to-use patent look-up for Web users, especially those who are not patent search experts but who can benefit from the vast amount of scientific information contained in patent records. STN Easy users can now select the Patent Tab and search for patents by inventor, patent assignee, patent number, keywords, and more in a patent-centered research environment. Online help messages and examples are available to assist in choosing search terms that are specific to patents.

CAS marketing director Suzan A. Brown said: "Once a user locates the patents of interest, the electronic full text of many patents can be accessed directly from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the European Patent Office at no additional charge. We feel that the STN Easy Patent Tab is a good complement to our more extensive STN services designed for comprehensive prior-art searching by patent information specialists."

STN Easy is one of several services that provide access to STN International, an online network that offers more than 200 scientific and technical databases. STN Easy delivers access to more than 80 of the STN databases, including major patent databases from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the European, German, and Japanese patent offices, among others.
