EPFULL Reload on STNext Features New Independent Claims Searching Capabilities
The November 5, 2022 reload of EPFULL on STNext provides a variety of exciting new searching capabilities, particularly in the area of Independent Claims, where two new search and display fields have been introduced:
The /CLM.IC field allows searching of just the independent claims.
The /CLM.CG field searches an independent claim and its related dependent claims.
Both new fields are custom displayable. See HELP CLAIMS for details.
The new /DETDEN search and display field provides access to the patents Detailed Description.
The /RLI predefined display format now includes /RLPI and /RLI.
Equivalent abstracts are now indexed in the /FA index as AB.EQ (i.e, AB.EQ/FA).
