Amended 2015b tables

Post by Rachie » Tue Dec 22, 2015 7:45 pm

I saw a blog post about how amended tables for the 2015b version of patstat have been released, but I haven't been able to find any official information about this. I never got an email from patstat, nor is it listed anywhere I can find online.

Where can I find the FTP links to download the new data?

Hi Rachie,

Last week every PATSTAT subscriber should have received an e-mail notification indicating where to find the amended tables. Please contact our PATSTAT help desk (patstat@epo.org) with your contact details to find out why we missed you. Thank you.

The updated tables are available till about mid-January at the EPO homepage http://www.epo.org. Got to "Searching for patents" - "Subscription products" - "Download data" - Product: Free ressources and download file patstat2015b_amended.zip . The downloads contains tableTLS214_NPL_PUBLN which has been amended. To keep relations consistent, also tables TLS201_APPLN, TLS211_PAT_PUBLN, TLS212_CITATION and TLS228_DOCDB_FAM_CITN are slightly amended and therefore included.

If you have problems downloading the 7GB, then contact the PATSTAT help desk (patstat@epo.org) and we will send you the changes on DVD.
