Information solutions provider Thomson Scientific has launched the Innovation, a new intellectual property research and analysis solution.
According to Thomson, the solution allows researchers to simultaneously search worldwide editorially enhanced patent data, Asian patent data translated into English, scientific literature and business and news sources.
David Brown, executive vice president of corporate markets at Thomson Scientific said: The global intellectual property market is changing rapidly, and organizations need to be aware of changes in the evolving landscape such as the proliferation of patenting activity in Asia.
The company said that the solution has features, including translations of Japanese full-text and abstracts of Chinese data and an integrated database combining Derwent world patent index with full-text patent data.
It supports intellectual property decisions with the help of analysis and visualization tools such as charting, citation mapping and search result ranking as well as provides a customizable folder structure to enable users to organize, annotate, search and share relevant files.
Thomson said that the solution is being launched in phases. The currently available first release includes global, full-text patent sources, including Japan. It will be followed by the addition of Derwent world patents index, scientific literature, business information and news.
Last month, Thomson Scientific also increased its coverage of China’s growing patent activity with the English-translated Chinese utility model registrations in Derwent World Patents Index.
Earlier this year, patent search engine PatentCafe released version 2.5 of its international patent database and artificial intelligence patent search engine.
