New STN Viewer to be Available Soon
CAS (www.cas.org) and FIZ Karlsruhe (www.fiz-karlsruhe.de) have announced that the new STN Viewer, a Web-based workflow productivity tool designed to increase patent professionals’ efficiency, will be coming soon. STN Viewer is seamlessly implemented within STN Express, the software used by information professionals. Use of STN Viewer is included in the STN Fixed Fee plan, providing cost efficiencies for patent information users. The STN Viewer was demonstrated during the recent PIUG (Patent Information Users Group) 2007 Annual Conference.
STN Viewer provides the following:
- A suite of tools designed for easy management of patent projects
- Integration with STN, providing seamless access from patent searching to evaluation
- Direct access to information contained in STN’s full-text patent databases reporting national (British, French, German, U.S.), regional (European), and international (World Patent Organization) patent literature
With STN Viewer, information and intellectual property professionals can create custom patent projects using full-text patent documents. They can also share patent projects with others in their organizations or teams. Patent professionals can easily evaluate patents with STN Viewer; view major sections, publication stages, and family members; define and highlight terms and phrases; and navigate the entire patent document via a visual summary of highlighted terms. STN Viewer also provides users with the capability to create reports in RTF (rich text format) maintaining their customized highlighting as well as the ability to save projects for use with STN Express postprocessing tools.Source: CAS and FIZ Karlsruhe
