# of XP Docs in Espacenet?

Post by mjwhitekingston » Wed Apr 13, 2016 3:01 pm

Dear Espacenet Team:

What is the current number of XP non-patent literature records in Espacenet? I have an old reference that states that there are 2 million. Approximately how many XP records are added each year?

Dear Michael,

We apologise for having overlooked your query.

The database of XP references grows practically daily, we do not have an exact number of documents added per year but if it is of any help to you, a database snapshot from the beginning of June 2016 shows that there are now just over 2,7 million XP references available.

Kind regards,
