Dear All,

Is a place where I can find the coverage of Desc/Claims docs available on OPS?

Dear Bruno,

This information is available in OPS FAQ's:

What is the coverage for full-text descriptions and claims in OPS?

OPS currently supplies descriptions and claims for documents published by the following authorities: EP, WO (only if published in English, French or German), AT, CH and ES. For CA, claims are provided, but not descriptions.

Kind regards,

OPS support

Dear OPS Support,

Thanks for this information but i'm sorry I would like to know the range date about the coverage.

I explain: i.e.
Country: FR
Coverage (all kind) : From 1855 to Now

But Desc/Claims are also with this coverage ?

thanks

Dear Bruno,

I understand very well what you meant but as you can see we can only tell you which collections we have (as I already said in my email).
We presume we have complete collections from those countries mentioned in my previous reply. We load this according to what we get from those countries so we can not vouch for completeness, except in case of EP where we know we have everything.

PS: FR we don't have

Kind regards,
OPS
