    – The notes and ratings you have given to the publications within your project.

–  Alert run times and latest changes for each alert.

– Project and user group members and their associated privileges.

– The activities within your project, by all users within the project (available via the Project Overview page and the new header) providing an audit trail for all your projects.

New Features

  • Return to the results page on your last viewed query and resume analysis from any page by clicking the Results link in the sidebar.
  • The family tree drawer now includes indications for the ratings, notes, and folders of each publication.
  • Folders for each publication are indicated in each publication’s header on the results page.
  • Add metadata to your projects and see the reference, description, and summary in your reports!
  • Quickly and easily switch projects and histories via the new switchers in the header.
  • You can now save your charts as a new chart via the ‘Save As’ button, allowing you to quickly create multiple charts from the same source.

  • Directional distance operators are now available allowing you to ensure each word follows the previous, e.g., test f2 tube will find testing of tubes but not tubes for testing.
  • Publication level folder searching (via the SD syntax) e.g. {SD:Myfolder} will return the publications added your folders rather than all the family members thereof which are returned by {MyFolder}, allowing you to identify the relevant publications more easily when reviewing your results.
  • Folder name truncation searching e.g. {MyFolder*} will search {MyFolder1} and {MyFolder2}.
  • Tooltips have been clarified and updated to load more quickly.

PatWorld Patent Alerts & Monitoring – New Improved Alert Function

New Improved PatWorld Patent Alerts & Monitoring system with the release of V2.5. Includes Monitoring New Forward and Backward Citations.

Version 2.5 brings with it a lot of changes to our Alerts feature which we’ll cover below. But firstly.

What are alerts and why would I use them?

Alerts allow you to monitor a specific portfolio of patents, a query containing up-to-date patent data or patents of particular interest. For example patents in a folder, with notes or star-ratings you have provided. You can base an alert on any number of queries. Including an assignee, a classification, a full text string, a list of publication numbers or any other searchable fields. Alerts are set to weekly by default. So that each week you can gain an edge into potential infringements, new advancements in a particular technology area or new competitors.

Monitor New Forward Citations / Backward Citations

These options allow for an easy way to monitor competitors, potential infringements and new advancements in a particular area.

Monitor Additional New Fields

Control which ‘other’ fields to monitor. Just by selecting full text additions, names, family movements and classifications separately to tailor to your interests.

Schedule Email Notifications to Any Email Address

Keep your colleagues and clients up to date. Automatically schedule sending alert emails to external recipients.

One Click Changelog Downloads

Alert emails feature a one-click downloadable csv changelog link as a faster way to access the data. See highlighted text on the image above.

Additional Content Added to Downloadable CSV

Additional fields added to csv change logs; title, abstract, first claim, publication date, application date, priority information, applicant, inventor, IPC, CPC.  Furthermore, Changelogs contain more specific change information (e.g. 2 classifications added, abstract now available, 3 legal statuses added).

View All Your Changes in a New Viewable Folder

When a change occurs a folder is created in your project. This folder contains publications with identified changes. You can then produce charts, custom exports or view results in PatWorld.

The Patent Development of Single Use Plastics

Food packaging has dominated headlines in recent years, largely due to the negative environmental impact of the production and waste of single-use plastics. With companies and governments vowing to combat this it will be interesting to see if the patents within this field reflect the rhetoric, as well as looking where the industry is generally heading.

In the latest publication of Food & Drink Processing & Packaging  (page 68), Patent Seekers utilised the PatWorld platform to analyse the patents published within the last year and understand the industry direction.

Using patent data for business intelligence allows you to gain insights into a technology area. What is the direction of innovation? What are your competitors doing? Are there opportunities for collaboration and/or investment. PatWorld allows you to mine into patent data and extract information into a report with charts.
