Thomson Reuters to Release Thomson Innovation 2.0
The Scientific business of Thomson Reuters (www.thomsonreuters.com) announced the forthcoming release of Thomson Innovation 2.0 (www.thomsoninnovation.com), the next generation of the company’s intellectual property (IP) research and analysis solution, with a preview of new content and functionality at Online Information 2008 in London. The product will be available publicly Dec. 15, 2008.
The ThemeScape landscape visualization tool enables an at-a-glance view of search results including first-level patent data, value-added patent information from Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI), and scientific literature (comprising Web of Science, Current Contents Connect, Inspec, and ISI Proceedings). With the consistency of language used in DWPI’s all-English abstracts, the quality of the resulting analysis is far superior to that from a landscape map created with first-level patent data.
Other enhancements in the release include the following:
- English translations of the titles, abstracts, and all claims for Chinese utility models and Chinese applications, both dating from 2007 to the present
- A clustering tool that automatically categorizes patent documents through the linguistic analysis of text found in user-selected fields and establishes document relationships that otherwise would take hours, if not days, to complete
- Tracking functionality that enables the centralized control of managing research done across an organization, including reporting options for client chargebacks and cost allocation
