PatentScope Adds German and Eurasian Patent Org. Collections

As of December 3, 2014 German full-text patent documents (published applications and patents) published from 1987 forward are now available in PatentScope. In addition, German utility models from 1999 forward are also available. Approximately 4.5 million older full-text documents were uploaded but not indexed due to poor OCR data. However, these documents do appear to be searchable to some extent.

Earlier this year the WIPO added the patent collection of the Eurasian Patent Organization (EAPO). EAPO consists of the Russian Federation and eight countries formerly part of the Soviet Union.

With the addition of these two patent office collections, PatentScope contains approximately 43 million patent documents.
