Scirus Search Engine Now Includes Patents

Elsevier, part of the Reed Elsevier Group, announced that its free science-specific search engine, Scirus (, has now indexed 13 million patents, including those from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the European Patent Office (EPO), the Japanese Patent Office (JPO), and the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Patent searching, powered by Scirus, has also been added to Scopus, Elsevier's recently launched abstract and indexing database.

The patent index data included in Scirus is obtained from LexisNexis, another Reed Elsevier company. Patents are loaded in Scirus in cooperation with LexisNexis, using Scirus' technology for indexing scientific information. Scirus users can search for patents with the same fielded search capabilities that they use when searching on Scirus. This includes the ability to search the index by title, abstract, author, date, and affiliation. Users who require more in-depth patent searches are directed to specialized patent search tools offered through LexisNexis.

The patents indexed in Scirus have been selected on the criteria of being either scientific in nature or relevant to the scientific community based upon categorization used by patent offices. Every patent search result found on Scirus provides a link to the full text at the appropriate patent office or to EPO's esp@cenet.
