RUFULL, a new patent full text database providing patent applications from the Federal Service for Intellectual Property in Russia (Rospatent), the Eurasian Patent Organization (EAPO) and the State Committee for Inventions and Discoveries of the former Soviet Union, is now available on STNext. Coverage back to 1924 is provided.

Outstanding features of RUFULL include numeric property search, key terms to support efficient full text searching and results evaluation, standardized and normalized patent assignee names, CPC classification codes including combination sets, and a separate update date for the full text.

NTIS Reload

NTIS, produced by the National Technical Information Service, USA, is a multidisciplinary database containing records for documents covered in Government Reports Announcements & Index (GRA&I). NTIS provides access to U.S.-sponsored research and contains unique information not found in other STN databases.

Key enhancements are as follows:

  • Numeric Property Searching for 59 physical or chemical properties
  • The ability to use SLART (simultaneous left and right truncation), previously available in only the Basic Index, has now been extended to the new Abstract (/AB) search field, as well as the Title (/TI).
