Patent search training

There are some databases that are absolutely essential to cover for a comprehensive patent search, but at the same time they are quite difficult to grasp for novice patent searchers

Although commercial databases are better in many respects , it is important for a new patent professional to first be proficient in all free /country specific databases. In many ways this is the differentiating factor in deciding the best candidates

In my patent search training series I'll be covering following databases

  • DEPatisnet
  • DPMA
  • SIPO
  • IPDL
and others

each would feature search basics for these databases and an example covering all taught topics
