Full-text searches with GPI

Post by EPO / EPAL Team » Mon Jun 15, 2020 4:41 pm

The full text (text of descriptions and claims) is now searchable via new search criteria (FTXT, DESC and CLAIM) and amended search criteria (WORD now includes words in titles, abstracts, descriptions and claims).

This enhancement will improve the quality of your keyword searches and could also enable new kinds of searches with GPI.

The following screenshot shows the current completeness of searchable full text (currently, EP and WO publications in English, French and German):

The GPI database is updated every week with the full text of new publications - additional searchable full-text collections will be included regularly and announced in this forum.

We will inform you as soon as the new user manual is online.

Note: In GPI the full text can be searched and translated, but not downloaded.
