Alert and Export Enhancements on TotalPatent, Plus Links to the European Patent Register!

Last time we looked at the TotalPatent System Report, a number of updates had been made to the patent search portal, including additional full text and bibliographic authorities, the ability for the Semantic Search feature to identify multiple concepts, increased download limits, a Merge tool to normalize data fields while analyzing the data, and improvements to the Work Folder feature. LexisNexis recently released another round of TotalPatent updates for October 2012, and we have a fresh overview of these enhancements provided by the LexisNexis website. The TotalPatent system now includes (or will eventually add) an export option for independent claims from US granted patents, links directly from EP records to the European Patent Register, better performance for displaying Work Folders and subfolders, and improvements to the alerts feature. Some of these enhancements seem to have been implemented, but the LexisNexis website is not particularly clear about the availability of these new features.

Stay up-to-date on the latest changes to the TotalPatent search system, and learn about recent export options, alert enhancements, and new European Patent Register links after the jump!
