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) - this information is accessible by selecting Completeness status of searchable full text in the Help menu of the GPI user interface:

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.

See details in the GPI user manual.

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

For example, FTXT = * and PUC = GB and PUK = A returns today around 2 355 000 GB A publications that can be searched using keywords in descriptions and claims, i.e., as indicated in the above screenshot, 98% of around 2 415 000 GB A publications available in GPI with bibliographic data.

As for EP and WO publications in English, German or French, searchable full text of recent GB publications is added every week in GPI.
