How to Use PatentOptimizer™ Analytics to Filter Documents and Locate Keyword Variants within a Patent Result Set

LexisNexis® PatentOptimizer™ is a patent analysis tool created by LexisNexis, and it was designed to assist patent attorneys and agents when drafting patent documents.  The PatentOptimizer™ Analytics feature may additionally be of use to patent searchers, who can load a set of up to 2000 documents into the Analytics tool and granularly filter the result set by a wide variety of criteria in order to locate very specific subsets within the broader result set.  Searchers who have narrowed their result set down to a list of hundreds of relevant documents can use the Analytics tool to locate only key documents through the filter options. The Analytics tool can also be used to generate a thesaurus on the fly for selected sets of documents and locate all variations of each term/phrase listed in the thesaurus.  This feature may be used by searchers to identify various important keywords and synonyms in a relevant result set in order to expand their search queries.  In general, PatentOptimizer Analytics offers tools that can help patent searchers either narrow their result set (through the filters) or expand their result set (through the keyword variants in the on-the-fly thesaurus).
