OPS extends data coverage for character-coded full-text (XML) to 19 country collections

Post by EPO / OPS Support » Tue Oct 09, 2018 2:35 pm

We are happy to announce that the data coverage for the character-coded full-text service in OPS (referred to as “descriptions” and “claims” in XML ) has been extended. Since a few days now you can retrieve full text for the following 11 additional countries: BE, CY, HR, IE, LU, MC, MD, NO, PL, PT, and RO.

This last addition brings the total number of authorities, for which we offer full text (claims and/or description) in XML, to 19: EP, WO, AT, BE, CA, CH, CY, ES, FR, GB, HR, IE, LU, MC, MD, NO, PL, PT and RO.

You can retrieve this data via the OPS Published-Data Services by using the following constituents:

- full text (recommended to find out which language version is available and if there are claims and/or description available)
- claims
- description

In order to find out the coverage for the character-coded full text available, you can consult the table “Latest full-text coverage”: https://www.epo.org/searching-for-paten ... tions.html . This table is updated daily and provides the full-text coverage as available in Espacenet. However, it will reflect also the full-text coverage for OPS for those authorities that are mentioned above.

We hope that in the near future we will be able to extend further the OPS coverage to even more countries already present in Espacenet.

For questions or issues contact us directly at patentdata(at)po.org

Regards,
Vesna for OPS
