Full-text descriptions and claims for US published patents

Post by chiriacgeorge » Mon Aug 22, 2016 11:53 am

according to [1], full-text descriptions and claims are not currently available for patents published by US authorities.

We were wondering, is there any chance that in the near future OPS will supply descriptions for US patents?

Dear user,

This question is covered in the FAQs.

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, GB, ES and CA.

There are no plans to offer US full-text in the near future.

Kind regards,
OPS support
