Efficient text searching in PATSTAT Online

Post by EPO / PATSTAT Support » Wed Jul 10, 2019 3:04 pm

Since the latest version PATSTAT Online allows text searching with the T-SQL features CONTAINS and FREETEXT. A keyword search in the title or the abstract now takes only seconds instead of (many) minutes.

More details can be found in section 6.3.2 of the "PATSTAT Online user manual" in the documentation tab of www.epo.org/patstat or in the attached short introduction:
