Patent Information - Looking beyond China

Many information specialists are currently being overwhelmed by the linguistic complexity and sheer volume of patent information emerging from China, which is having an enormous impact upon their ability to perform high-quality searches.  But if the economic bubble bursts in Asia, where will the future lie?  This presentation will review some trends amongst current "second division" countries and attempts to perceive where major new sources of patent information might come from, in the next decades.

An Introduction into Patent Analytics

Classical patent research has undergone a rapid and radical change in the last years. The enormous volume and variety of available data offers new invaluable opportunities for gaining insight in a number of aspects related to the patent world, but at the same time considerably increases the complexity for the researcher (analyst ?) wishing to explore it.
The Patent Asset Index methodology is a scientifically developed and industry proven approach to provide efficient guidance when analyzing big data clusters, and a well founded tool for the assessment of the relevance of patent sets.

20 Years is Not Enough

This analysis shows how IP, regulatory, and marketing strategy have to interfere for maximizing the lifetime of IP protection in pharmaceuticals. In contrast to mechanical inventions you can use special aspects of chemical /pharmaceutical patents like medical use or SPCs and PTE or variations in formulation to optimize your product protection. Using the example of an active ingredient it is shown how filing strategy, product development and finally IP life cycle management can be combined to achieve the maximum market success.

Mind the Gap: The novel benefits of human-curated substance locations for chemical patent analysis

Identifying and locating chemical substances, which can be disclosed in patents by names, structures, variable tables, etc. presents a time-intensive challenge to chemical patent analysis.  Though emerging technology can help, recently published research demonstrates that algorithmic identification of chemical substances alone successfully identifies only ~60% of the disclosed compounds, compared to intellectual compound identification. PatentPakTM addresses this gap by extending the efforts of CAS scientists, who have intellectually analyzed the global patent literature for claimed and exemplified compounds for more than 100 years, to also elucidate the location of the substances in the patent text. This presentation will explore a number of examples, including a case study on vitamin D metabolites, to demonstrate the significant time savings and enhanced comprehensiveness of this approach.

Universal Resource Access: Connecting Researchers to Scientific Content

Globalization and the expanded use of mobile devices are dramatically changing the landscape for access to scientific content. While researchers expect instant secure access no matter where they are, legacy infrastructure and cumbersome authentication and access models present barriers to timely access to scientific literature and so stand in the way of seamless discovery. The speaker will present findings of independent research on this topic and discuss the outcomes of an industry event that brought together various stakeholders. The presentation will summarize challenges, describe potential solutions and outline key next possible steps for publishers, information managers, and researchers regarding universal resource access.


Improving the Pharmacovigilance Literature Screening Process. How New Content Licensing Options Enable Reviews Beyond the Abstract

Screening scientific literature for the purpose of detecting adverse side effects of drugs is burdensome, yet essential. The discovery and retrieval of full-text journal articles is a necessary part of this process. Cursory screening of abstracts has been used to determine which journal articles require full-text reviews. And transactional purchases have historically been the only option for accessing the full-text for non-subscribed content when cursory reviews lead to in-depth review requirements.

In February 2016, a new full-text article rental program was introduced to the drug safety market with the potential to enable a deeper screening of scientific journal content.  In this session, Reprints Desk will present information related to new full-text article rentals, including an overview of how article rentals work and time-saving workflow options.

Tutorial: Searching for Information – the Classical Way with Key Words and Classification compared with a Semantic Approach

Adding value to information through key words or classification is a long established practice. Using it is still common at least in professional information searching. Some years ago means for semantic searching emerged as additional search tools and were very much welcomed by the community of searchers. But were expectations fulfilled? The tutorial will try an answer demonstrating search paths for both methods and comparing results.
