Applicant country

Post by HelenaZ » Thu Sep 12, 2019 1:14 pm

Hello,

I had difficulties on providing search query from beta-version on the following question: how many European applications and European patents were published in 2016 where the applicants are from Slovenia.
In current Espacenet I used the following query: pd= 2016 and pn=ep and applicant=[SI].

I could not get those results from beta-version. In advanced search it is not possible to enter applicants country (just his name) and the filter (applicant country) does not show the results of Slovenian applicants at all.

I would ask you for explaining me how to deal with such question.

Kind regards,
Helena Zalaznik

You can use the filter to EXCLUDE enough countries until the SI appear and then apply and remove the exclusion - Final result would be

Dear users you, may also use a simple trick:
1. make a search that retrieves SI applicants: e.g. pn=SI and simply select the item SI that is listed high up in the filter "Applicants -country" for this query: https://worldwide.espacenet.com/beta/se ... &q=pn%3DSI

2. Change your search to what you originally wanted to search n.b. the filter *Applicants - country* remains. ie. pd=2016 and pn=ep: https://worldwide.espacenet.com/beta/se ... %20pn%3Dep
Kind regards

Is then there is no way to formulate the applicant country search in a single query (without manually using the filter menus or other tricks)?

In new Espacenet this function is only possible via the filter function. However this is not a real disadvantage, since the filter remains also for the next search until removed by the user. Hence this is just a different way to formulate the query. Moreover this approach has the advantage that the user gets a statistical evaluation of the applicant countries in the result set, without having to query each country individually.
