Query Published Data by Language

Post by apteryxlabs » Tue Sep 29, 2020 10:35 pm

Hello all,

I'm trying to query the https://ops.epo.org/3.2/rest-services/p ... ata/search endpoint by language. Specifically, given a keyword (or words) - say, 'autonomous' and 'vehicle' - I'd like to query the database and return only documents which are in english.

In general, I'd love a quick reference for the various query parameters, logic (ANDs, ORs, etc) for the various OPS endpoints. I've been searching for an hour now and can't find anything.

Anything helps!

There re no language endpoints and everything you need is described is on OPS page in user documentation: https://www.epo.org/searching-for-paten ... s/ops.html (under Further information page"

OPS is access to same data as Espacenet, so all CQL/Smart search queries that work in Espacenet will also work in OPS.
In documentation you will find filed identifiers and you have same Info here, related to Espacenet:

https://worldwide.espacenet.com/help?lo ... identifier
https://worldwide.espacenet.com/help?lo ... tationscql
https://worldwide.espacenet.com/help?lo ... =operators

Vesna for OPS support
