Full text search now available in Espacenet

Post by EPO / Patent Information » Thu Apr 21, 2016 11:43 am

You can choose which logical database, i.e. which language you want to search in, and input search text in that language.

NB After selecting any of the full text databases it is mandatory to enter at least one keyword in the “Keyword(s) in title, abstract and full text:” field

To ONLY search in the bibliographical data, please use the first option of the drop down list.

Worldwide - collection of published applications from 90+ countries: offers text search in English in Title or Title and abstract fields only

Worldwide EN - collection of published applications in English: offers full text search in English for all documents published in English which are available in full text from the Worldwide database

Worldwide FR - collection des demandes publiées en Français: offers full text search in French for all documents published in French which are available in full text from the Worldwide database

Worldwide DE - Sammlung veröffentlicher Anmeldungen auf Deutsch: offers full text search in German for all documents published in German which are available in full text from the Worldwide database

The Worldwide EN, Worldwide FR, and Worldwide DE collections have been further enhanced by the incorporation of the former EP and WIPO full text databases as linguistically appropriate.

I am wondering what kind of technology is behind the full text search of Espacenet? Does it combine patent classification with the text search or it is purely text based search?
