Full text searching EP documents through OPS

Post by AlbertoCiaramella » Wed Mar 25, 2015 11:17 am

I ask if it is possible to search in the full text of EP documents through OPS as it is possible through Espacenet, and, if possible, how to express this query.

Thank you and best regards

Dear Alberto,

In OPS it is not possible to search full text; it is only possible to retrieve full text for EP-A documents. Please check our OPS manual on pages 59-65 for more information on this topic.
