Gain Greater Access to Patent Records

Making patent records more accessible to researchers is foundational to helping them conduct patent searches more effectively and efficiently. Access to patent records, of course, includes providing patent professionals with a method of accessing global patent documents in the literal sense—which is why TotalPatent One® makes patent records from worldwide patent authorities available to its users. However, there is another component of “accessibility” in the patent world that is arguably just as important—the ability to cut through an abundance of patent data to extract pertinent information. The TotalPatent One patent search platform has been designed with its users in mind, enabling them to navigate, filter and visualize search results, so they can identify patent records that could weigh on their analyses, evaluate patent documents for relevance and export important information to inform patent prosecution strategies.

Providing Simpler Patent Search Methods

Most patent databases require that users have a solid understanding of Boolean syntax to devise well-tailored search queries. While TotalPatent One users have the option to employ Boolean queries, they can also build queries with intuitive patent search tools that eliminate the need to master Boolean syntax. Simply select the desired search parameters (e.g., keywords, countries of protection, filing date ranges, owner names, etc.) and TotalPatent One delivers made-to-measure search results.

Access Patent Record Previews

When patent researchers run their queries, many patent platforms return a list of basic information, such as patent record titles and document numbers; it remains up to the researchers to click through each record link to view additional information. The TotalPatent One patent search platform helps patent searchers drastically cut down on evaluating results lists by providing an in-platform sidebar with document previews. From the main search results list, users can view image clippings and text from patent documents, as well as links to patent citations and other patent records in the same patent family. TotalPatent One users can also visualize the composition of their search results with interactive pie charts that show the breakdown of patent record results and allow users to filter results by category (e.g., country of origin, CPC classification, assignees, etc.).

Managing and Exporting Patent Information

Patent professionals can easily manage their search projects by adding patent records to electronic folders within TotalPatent One. As multiple projects unfold, practitioners can use TotalPatent One folders to keep their searches organized and their records easily accessible. For off-platform access, users can also produce reports with customized content that can be exported in a variety of formats. Tailored reports enable patent professionals to share critical information with colleagues and patent clients to promote an effective explanation of patent search findings.
