Links to National Patent Registers Now Available in Patent Databases on CAS STNext

Get direct access to the latest information from numerous patent authorities by using the new "Register Links" feature on CAS STNext. The register links appear online in CAS STNext displays in the well-known patent number drop-down menu of publication and application numbers.

The link provides a direct path to the electronic registers of 48 important patent offices, including 30 offices which allow direct linking to the application or patent publication number of interest. Use this feature to conveniently obtain reliable first-hand information on the status of the patent process and direct access to the detailed original documents from the files of the patent offices.

Hyperlinks to patent office registers are included in the multitude of STNext databases that contain patent information. These include CA/CAplus, INPADOCDB and INPAFAMDB, the Derwent World Patents Index databases, all STN patent full text databases, as well as all other databases that contain patent application and publication information, such as GENESEQ, USGENE and IFIALL.
