FIZ Karlsruhe and the scientific business of Thompson Reuters, have announced that they will provide patent information from China, Japan and Korea on STN International.

The Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI) files on STN International now include all the claims for Chinese and Korean patent applications and Utility Models, and the first claim for Japanese applications and Utility Models, all in English language, to complement the existing coverage of these authorities.

Original content from these authorities is first published in DWPI First View within days of publication.

The bibliographic content and patent claims, some of which are machine-translated, are then thoroughly reviewed by patent information specialists at Thomson Reuters and enhanced DWPI titles and abstracts are prepared, clearly outlining the novelty of the invention.

The records are indexed with Thomson Reuters’s proprietary classification system and the bibliographic meta data is corrected where necessary to eliminate errors found in the original patents.

Once this value add is completed, the records are loaded into DWPI and the entry in DWPI First View is deleted.

WPIndex, WPIDS and WPIX offer all search functions of STN’s value-added databases including automatic alert services.

The enhanced DWPI will be presented at Online Information in London on 2-4 December 2008, at the Olympia fairgrounds.
