STN Launches French and British Patent Databases

FIZ Karlsruhe, the European service center of STN International, is presenting several new patent databases at Online Information 2003 (London, Dec. 2-4). The new reference database FRANCEPAT contains abstracts of patent applications and patents published by the Institut National de la Propriété Industrielle (INPI), France, since 1966. The new databases FRFULL and GBFULL, to be launched on STN in 2004, will provide the full texts of French and British patent documents.

In addition, Thomson-Derwent, database producer and sales partner of STN, has developed an alert service with its new database, WPI First View, a complementary file to its World Patents Index (WPINDEX). In WPI First View, patent information is published without further processing, thus making it available on STN as quickly as possible after publication by the respective patent offices.

STN International currently hosts about 220 sci-tech online databases, 30 of which are exclusively dedicated to patent information. Numerous other specialist databases, e.g., in the fields of chemistry and biotechnology, also provide subject-related patent information. STN International can be accessed either through proprietary data networks or via the Internet.
