FRFULL and GBFULL Reloaded

The full-text databases FRFULL and GBFULL for patent applications from France and the United Kingdom were reloaded February 17, 2019.

Both files include Key Terms (field KT) to support efficient full-text searching and results evaluation, and CPC combination sets, a special indexing assigned by patent examiners to link major features of an invention. Bibliographic information has also been augmented with related application information, original patent, application and priority numbers. The description and claims for approximately 95 percent of the documents have been re-OCRed to enhance the quality of the full-text.

In GBFULL, filed patent application documents with kind code GB D0 have been added; these records typically contain only bibliographic information.
