Comments on this help

Please note that some of the help texts refer to EIDOweb modules that you may not use.

Please note that all help texts always describe the usual possibilities of EIDOweb. However, depending on your EIDOweb configuration, there may be limitations or extensions.

What is EIDOweb?

EIDOweb supports the user in monitoring and decision finding for the IP rights management. Therefore, EIDOweb provides a customized in-house database in which published technical IP documents (patents, patent applications, utility models) can be stored and searched - documents of the user's company or of third-parties. The database is maintained fully automatically by downloading regularly the newest documents from diverse official patent office servers and then storing the documents in the database. During the storing process, each document can be assigned to one or more users, or a document can be assigned later by an entitled user. Optionally, the user can search the complete database or only the science fields assigned to him/her. IP rights of his/her science fields have to be evaluated or acknowledged by him/her. Optionally, the evaluations can also be shown to other users.

Terms

"patent", "patent application", "utility model", "IP right", "document"

By using exact terminology, EIDOweb stores data, texts and files for documents belonging to patents, patent applications and utility models, i.e. to technical IP rights. As shorter terminology, the online help texts sometimes use the generic term "IP right" or "document", even if these terms usually also include other IP rights like trademarks which are not supported by EIDOweb.

Login

Login

Premises

The EIDOweb user interface is based on HTML pages, therefore the user logs into EIDOweb by using any desired Internet browser installed on his/her working place, for example Internet Explorer, Opera, Chrome, Firefox etc. Software installations for users are not required.

You have the option of logging on an intranet server. However, this, you need the authorization. The authentication is only possible if you have received a user name and password of your patent department - were so authorized by your patent department. After entering your user and password to access their proprietary EIDOweb application, where you can make various searches make.

Login

  1. Enter your user in the user and password field in the Password field. To move from one field to the next, using the tab key.
  2. Click the Login button to start the application. Pressing the enter or return key automatically activates the Login button.

Anonymous Optional

Alternatively, users without an own user name and password can login by using the Anonymous button, This account do not allow any data manipulation or evaluations of documents.

Note!

The functionalities of EIDOweb, which are explained in this help, are only partially available as user "Anonymous".

The funtionality can also be limited to "real" users.

Levels

Levels

The user moves between different levels within the EIDOweb application. On each level, the user has access to different functions and options. The levels are:

  1. Login
  2. Queries
  3. Search
  4. Hit list - an overview of all search results
  5. Hit - with detailed data and files for a technical IP right document (patent, patent application, or utily model)
Queries, External

Queries, External

By means of a "search" you search for patent documents, data and/or information based on the search criteria defined by you. In the Select you select a search type for which you like to run the search. Depending on your configuration, the following searches can be started in the menu bar (in the online help texts, only the standard search types are described).

After having selected the search type and the respective Searchmask click on the [Search ] key to execute the search. For all search types it applies that the execution of a search under the same search criteria can produce different results (Hit list) at different times, because new documents can have been added to, changed or deleted in the database in the meantime.

Go to the level Queries by executing the following:

In the following, you find more information about the query type:

Go to the level Saved Searches by executing the following:

In the following, you find more information about the query type:

Go to the level External by executing the following:

In the following, you find more information about the query type:

  • Depatisnet... www.depatisnet.de
  • Espacenet... www.espacenet.com
  • USPTO... www.uspto.gov/patents-application-process/search-patents
  • Order any document Optional
  • External Optional

Search all documents

With this search type you search the complete database by means of filters which are defined on the basis of your search criteria.

After having selected this search type, a form is displayed to you in which you define your search on the basis of your criteria. The results of an executed search - the Hit list - can be used for narrowing down the search results by using further search criteria on the basis of the last filter. Thus you receive the hits being substantial for you.

You find more information about the search by filter here.

Search week & monitor profile

Search all documents in your EIDOweb database for a certain year and calendar week of the download date of the documents. Optionally, narrow down your search by additionally selecting a certain Monitor profile.
Therefore, fill out the following data fields:

  • Year: in four digits (yyyy)
  • Calendar week: 1, 2, ..., 52.
  • Monitor profile: A Monitor profile controls which documents are downloaded from the Internet and stored in the EIDOweb database. For example, these profiles can be defined such that they correspond to the search requirements of departments or technical subsections.
    (Do not confound a Monitor profile with the Saved Searches!).

Search unevaluated doc's

Search for all unevaluted and not acknowledged documents in the EIDOweb database.

Search assigned doc's

This search type is similar to Search all documents, but is restricted to searching only through all documents provided by the Monitor Profiles allowed for the user. A filter is offered for defining further search criteria.

Search evaluations & monitor profile

Search for all documents in your EIDOweb database having been assigned a certain evaluation in a certain period. Optionally, narrow down your search by additionally selecting a certain Monitor profile.
Therefore, fill out the following data fields:

  • From: Start date of the period in the format DD.MM.YYYY
  • To: end date of the period in the format DD.MM.YYYY
  • A Monitor profile controls which documents are downloaded from the Internet and stored in the EIDOweb database. For example, these profiles can be defined such that they correspond to the search requirements of departments or technical subsections.
    (Do not confound a Monitor profile with the Saved Searches!).
  • Evaluation: select an individual evaluation criterion, for example "information". [obligatory field]

Search archived doc's Optional

The search results of this search type depend on your user-specific rights. You can search in all documents archived by you before by using the functions "Add to archive" and "Remove from archive". This search type is only enabled and displayed, if the user is allowed to archive documents. An Archive is a user-specific group of documents in the EIDOweb database. Therefore, different users have different document Archives and there is no general and same document Archive across the complete EIDOweb database for all users. However, a specific document can be stored in different user's Archives, if more than one user adds the same document to his/her personal Archive.
Like for the search type Search all documents, a filter is offered here, too, to noarrow down your search with the restriction that you search only all documents of your own individual Archive.

Clean familiy search

Just like for free patent search, but only one member of each patent family will be shown. Which family member will be shown is determined on the basis of the country codes with a predefined list. Also you will be offered a filter for a further definition of search criteria.

Saved Searches Optional

Save or load a filter search defined before by you under a name to run this search more than once. Thus, you define a complicated search only once.

Stored searches (search profiles) are individually defined by a user in his/her EIDOweb user account, so in general, each user has different search profiles.

The saved searches will be applied separately as a standard for each user, a stored search you name can therefore only be seen by you and the corresponding search can be done by you. A configuration option is the use of shared memory for all users, while the searches are prepared by an administrator and can then be used by all users.

Proceeding

  1. In the Saved Searches menu, next to the Execute button, select the name of the to perform searches that you saved earlier.
  2. Then click the Execute button.

Order any document Optional

Order any document is optionally displayed depending on your EIDOweb configuration. Your company in general monitors hundreds or thousands of IP rights. The documents belonging to these IP rights are available as PDF files, for example by downloading the documents from the patent office Internet databases. The plurality of theses files would need extensive memory capacities and evoke long process time, if all the files were permanently stored in the EIDOweb database. Therefore, it is more efficient to provide a single user with a full document only in case he/she really needs it. By clicking this order link, the user sends a request for the actual document to be downloaded as PDF and stored in the EIDOweb database. EIDOweb regularly checks all users' document order requests and also other requests like for monitor profiles. A document order request is worked off immediately, if no monitor profile is actually running. If a monitor profile is in work progress, the user's document order has to wait. If there are still other monitor profiles to be started, the user's order request is worked off before the next monitor profile's search and download process is started. Usually, the time between sending the document order and the download of the document takes some minutes. If other EIDOweb requests are in work progress or limitations for downloading from DEPATISnet are exceeded, it may take a longer time. Refresh/actualize the document details page and check on the Files tab or the Full Document tab whether the download is finished and you can view the full document by clicking the appropriate link. Depending on the configuration, an information email is sent to the user as soon as the document order is worked off. In the course of downloading a full document, the bibliographical data, claims and description and family data are also updated for this document.

Attention! The orders made here will be carried out with a higher priority than the automatic downloads, ie by ordering a very large number of documents, the automatic download is interrupted to download these documents for a long time.

Typing the publication number(s) in the order list

  • IMPORTANT: Enter only ONE publication number per line!
  • The syntax of a publication number is: XXNumberY
    ‘XX’ stands for the country code (WIPO) and ‘Number’ or the publication number. Leading zeros can be omitted (EP012345 = EP12345). Please always use the country code, even when downloading a document from the publishing patent office (’US123456’, even when downloading from the USPTO).
  • ‘Y’ stands for the document type and can be omitted. If more than one document with the same publication number, but with different types exist, the last document will be downloaded by default. If you want to download a specific document, please add the correct document kind code (Example: for a granted European patent, use 'EP012345B1', for the published document 'EP012345', for a German utility model 'DE12345U').

Optionally, you can assign a profile if you want the fonts to be assigned to this profile.

You can also specify which data should be downloaded.
To do this, check the checkbox at:

  • Bibliographic data
  • PDF-File
  • register data
  • Drawings
  • Legal Status

External Optional

Search directly on DEPATISnet. Use the query syntax from Depatisnet (Mimosa).

In addition, the following options are available:

  • In addition, retrieve the summary from the external server
  • Result List Sorting
  • Mark the hits that already exist in EIDOweb
  • show no drawings
  • Display drawings for documents in the EIDOweb database
  • Display mosaic or drawings for documents in the EIDOweb database

Warning!
This check will slow down the query for large result lists.

Search types

Depending on your configuration, the following searches can be started in the menu bar:

Searches

Extern

Search with filters

With the search types Search all doc's, Search assigned doc's, Search archived doc's, and Clean familiy search you search for patent information by using a filter which is defined by you on the basis of your search criteria. First the search is defined and than executed. The result of an search is a ">Hit list.

The execution search with certain search criteria at different times can lead to different results (Hit lists), since in the meantime in the data base if necessary new patent rights (hit) were added, changed or deleted.

Depending upon configuration of your EIDOweb-Database the filter characteristics and filter terms used can deviate.

Go to level Search by:

In the following one you find to more information to the topics:

Enter filters

  1. Select with Queries a search with filter.
  2. One or more filter lines with the following fields are indicated to them:

  3. Select in the second field the Search-field, for which is to be searched.
  4. Select in the third field the operator.
  5. Enter in the fourth field the value which can be looked for.
  6. In order to look for serveral search-fields, you can use the second, third, etc. filterrows and repeat the previous steps. The filter rows are linked in each case with the and , or  , and not of the previous filter row.
  7. Click the [Search ] key.
  8. A Hit list with the search results are automatically created and showed.

Presetting

You can fall back to the pre-setting of the individual filter rows. As pre-setting in addition the most important search fields are adjusted. You can change by clicking the drop down arrow the filter field. Altogether a larger number of filter fields is to you at the disposal, which you can link with a filter input according to your defaults. Read in addition also the examples.

Date-fields

If the search-field is a date-field (e.g. Application Date), must the date always enter in the form dd.mm.yyyy , e.g. 01.06.1978 for the June, 1. 1978. You can only search in date-fields with the operators date is, is before date and is after date . Note that this is not the presetting for date fields. You must select the right operator manually.

Example

Bracket rules

To combine optimal many search criteria, you can use brackets. Here some the most important bracket rules:

  • Set the brackets in Opening- and Closing-bracket suitably to each other. In all filter-rows the number of Opening-brackets are the same as Closing-brackets. It will only use the brackets in the filter-rows where a value entered.
  • Brackets are only meaningfully, if you use at least 3 filter rows.
  • You don't need any brackets, if you link all filter-rows with "and".
  • Also you don't need any brackets, if you link all filter-rows with "or".
  • If you set a opening-bracket you must set the closing-bracket in the next filter-row.

Example

If you search for a patent document in the countries Germany, USA or United Kingdom and the application date is after 01. January 2000, the search looks like this:

Searches without restrictions / searches all

If you search without any restrictions you will get all documents in the database. For that you enter no value and click directly the [Search ] key.

Reference!

The compilation of the hit list of all data records requires substantial Preformance. This can take a very long time.

The Operator "auto"

The operator "auto" sets automatically useful Wildcards.
The following list shows which truncation is used for which field:

  • Right Truncation
    Application Number, Family, National Classes, IPC, Priority and Citation
  • Left and Right Truncation
    Pub.No. Patent
There are none automatically wildcards settings for the other fields.

Reference!

On Field Pub.No. Patent you must use the operator "auto". Otherwise you get no results.

Fields with extended search possibilities

In following search-fields you can enter and execute special search instructions:

  • Fulltext
  • Applicant
  • Inventor
  • Priority
  • IPC-Classes
  • National Classes
  • Family
  • Citation
  • Evaluation Criterion
  • Title

With this fields you can only use this operators: auto, equals and "the empty Operator". Note that with the operator auto set automatically wildcards. See also The Operator "auto".

With these search-fields you can enter more than one value in the value-field.
On this you can use:

  1. the Operators: and, or and not
  2. the Wildcards: % (like *) and _ (like ?)
  3. the Brackets: ( and )
  4. the Escape-Keys: {} and \ if you need search for command character (e.g. % ).
On all these special fields always searched case insensitive.

Reference!

Please use if possible no special character. The most of them (* and ?) are also a command character, but not all implemented yet. So they can be interpreted wrong and you get a wrong search result. If you must search a special character, please enter Escape-Key \ before or set the whole search in {}-brackets.

Reference!

Avoid if possible the logical operator or   between filter rows. Because a search with or with these special search-fields can take a very long time.

Example 1

Search in the full text for car and engine. Searched with the operator auto  for car and engine case insensitive. In the text are found e.g. car, engine.

Example 2

Search in the full text for car and engine. Searched with the operator equals  or with the empty operator for exact car and engine case insensitive. In the text are found e.g. car, engine  or Car, ENGINE.

Example 3

Search in the full text for car and engine or vehicle. Searched with the operator equals  or with the empty operator for all that beginns with car and has in addition exact engine or vehicle in the text.
[Syntax (car% and engine) or vehicle]
In the text are found e.g. carwasch, engine  and texts with vehicle .

Examples

1. Search for inventors

  1. Select in the search-field Inventor.
  2. Enter in the value-field the name of the inventor. It must not the whole name of the inventor. You can also enter a part of the Name. For that you need to select the "auto" operator.
  3. On executing the searches all IP-rights in your EIDOweb database will be shown, in which this/these inventor/inventors is/are named. Note that the inventor name is not showed in the hit-list. The Inventor showed on the hit page on the register card Bibliographical data.

Example

2. Application number

Select in the search-field the Application number. Enter in the value-field the whole or a part of the Application number. Click on [Search ] key to get the hit-list. With a klick on the patent document you get detailed information.

Example

3. Countries

If you search for countries, than

  1. select in the search-field Pub. No. Patent .
  2. select the operator auto .
  3. Enter in the value-field the two character of the ISO-LandCode (Wipo ST.9), e.g. DE for Germany, GB für United Kingdom or WO for PCT-patents.

Example

4. Link from expressions

They can represent a complex search inquiry by linkages of the expressions and, or and and not with the parenthesis instructions in several filter-rows. With the relationship of the individual filter-rows among themselves the bracket rules. By a complex search inquiry you can limit so the result hit-list to the relevant hit. They can be able to be indicated in this way for example only those documents, which do not exhibit a certain component:

  • Select for example in the first and second filter-row in each case the Application number for the search-field.
  • These two filter-rows link you with the bool function and not in the first filter-row.
  • In the first filter-row you indicate in the value-field the smallest common denominator of all that you to interesting documents.
  • In the second filter-row you enter that component in the value-field, which is not to be indicated.
  • After manipulation the search results contain all documents with file references [search ] of the key in the hit-list in accordance with the first filter-row, however without the file references in accordance with the second filter-row. They can out-provoke this search function by use of the parenthesis instruction and further filter-rows still further.

Example

Correct filters

If you would like to correct the search criteria in your search and extend or make your filter expression smaller, use please the [Back ]-key of your browsers. Only in this way you can get the old filter expression. After this you can change the filter and research with a click on the Search-key.

Hit list

Hit list

After having selected a search type, maybe defined the filter (not for saved and reloaded searches) and run the search by clicking the [Search] button, a hit list of the search results is displayed. The hit list provides an overview of all found documents and contains only the most important data like title, publication date, applicant, document number.

The hit lists for a specific search executed at different points of time may differ because documents may have been added, deleted, or modified in the meantime.

Go to the level Hit list do:

Functions

Browse through the Hit list (navigation)

By default, 20 hits of all hits are displayed on one page. Click the arrows in the navigation bar to browse through the hit list. With and move the list forward or backward by 20 hits. Jump to the beginning or end of the hit list with or . Alternatively, you can also display all hits in the overview (up to 9999 hits). You can also use [Ctrl+,] for and [Ctrl+,] for scrolling.

View all search results on one page

Click the button in the navigation bar to view all search results in the hit list on one page instead of only 20 hits per page. Be aware that this may cause browser problems, if the hit list is very long and the browsers cannot display the complete hit list, or the server prohibits displaying the long list.

Open document details or search view (Hit)

Hit lists have links to the document details or search view for a patent.

  • You open the document details by clicking on the title in the Hit list. Then additional information, such as Bibliographical data, appears for your selected match.
  • You can open the search view by clicking on the button with the number of lines. The search view is always opened in the same window, so you can display the hit list next to the window with the search view. In the search view, you can only read and do nothing else. The menu is also reduced to the essentials. The bibliographic data is hidden by default, and the Description tab also displays the mosaic, if any.

Sort Hit list

Sort the Hit list by clicking the column heading fields. In case of the same entry in a specific column for two lines, the order is maintained and enables thus sorting the Hit list subsequently by more than one criterion.

Export Hit list

Click the Export link in the menu bar to export the complete Hit list. Depending on the configuration, diverse formats and/or data fields are available, e.g., XML (Extensible Markup Language), or CSV (Comma Separated Values) formats. Edit, modify and/or add information to the exported hit lists by using a spreadsheet program. Also available PDF and Excel.

Example: Hit list export to MS Excel

  1. Wählen Sie im Menü Hit list Export aus.
  2. Klicken Sie auf Excel Export und speichern Sie die Datei in einem Verzeichnis Ihrer Wahl. Als Standardname wird eidoweb_<datum>.xls angeboten, der in diesem Beipiel weiter verwendet wird.
  3. Excel öffnen
  4. und die Datei export.xls öffnen
  5. Die Datensätze liegen nun in Zeilen und Spalten der Tabelle geordnet vor. Modifizieren und formatieren Sie anschließend die Tabelle individuell nach Ihren Wünschen. Diese Formatierung können Sie natürlich auch für andere Hit listn wiederverwenden, die Sie mit EIDOweb erstellt haben.

Configure result lists Optional

Below the result list you can find the configuration for the list. With the generation of the result list you have the possibility to compile this list indivually having regard to given fields.

Evaluate in the Hit list Optional

You will find the evaluation buttons either below the hit list or in the left menu. To do this, click on to show the menu. In the left menu, click on "Your evaluation:" so that the rating buttons are displayed.

To rate, in the last column of the hit list , check the checkbox. Then click on the corresponding evaluation button.

With the buttons and you can check or uncheck all displayed lines.

Save search profile Optional

Save a search defined before by a filter under a name to run this search more than once. Thus, the user needs to define a complicated search only once. Search profiles are individually defined by a user in his/her user account, so in general, each user has different search profiles. A search can only be saved or loaded on the hit list level as follows:

  1. Go to a hit list for which you want to save the search criteria.
  2. Enter the name of the search in the menu bar next to the 'save' link.
  3. Click the 'save'. The search is now stored in the search profile storage.
  4. The search name can now be selected and started by clicking the 'load' link in the menu bar.

Load and execute search profile Optional

A previously saved search, you can load and execute at the level selection or hit like this:

  1. The selection or any hit list is displayed.
  2. Choose from two cases, always in the menu bar in the search profile storage section next to the link, type the name of the next search to be carried out in the list box.
  3. Click in the menu bar in the search profile storage section running on the link.
  4. The corresponding hit list is displayed.
  5. In the selection and further hit will always display the last used search name and the associated end search can be run again.

A search can only be deleted on the Hit list level as follows:

  1. Go to any Hit list.
  2. Select the name of the search to be deleted in the menu bar next to the 'delete' link.
  3. Click the 'delete' link. The search is now removed from the search profile storage.

Modify a saved search profile, save search profile under Optional

Actually, the user cannot modify the filter definition of a previously saved search. This function is planned for future EIDOweb versions. Similarly, a saved search cannot be saved under a different name or copied.

Open search profile Optional

A previously saved search, you can open the selection or hit levels as follows:

  1. The selection or any hit list is displayed.
  2. Choose from two cases, always in the menu bar in the search profile storage section next to the link Open the name of the next zuöffnenden search in the list box.
  3. Click in the menu bar in the search profile storage section on the link Open.
  4. Die zugehörige Hit list wird angezeigt.
  5. The corresponding search is displayed.

Back to hot list

With the button , you will back to the hit list.

Catchphrases

Catchphrases [Ctrl+Alt+C] depending on user authorization

Catchphrases are to be defined in EIDOpat for EIDOweb by an administrator; see the Administration Guide. In EIDOweb, the user can

  • assign one or more of the previously defined catchphrases to a document depending on the science field,
  • search for all documents to which catchphrases have been assigned before by selecting a search type with a filter, and here go to the last filter line which is specifally reserved for searching Catchphrases.
The catchphrase tree illustrates the relations and hierarchies between the diverse catchphrases.

Go to the catchphrase tree as follows:

Go to the Catchphrases of a document as follows>:

Find more information by clicking the following links:

Catchphrase hierarchies in tree

For a selected topic you known you surely soon fall a number of catchphrase that you associate with the topic. These tags can be divided into upper and lower terms. This can be continued as desired and finely divided. A tree structure is created when all CatchPhrases the hierarchy represented by graphically so that a narrower term is arranged to another term under this term.

Creating catchphrases

Subjects for the tree structure can only be created by your IP department.

Assign a catchphrase

CatchPhrases are always associated with a single document (hit). CatchPhrases can not be assigned to several rights simultaneously in one step, that is, you can not assign a hit list CatchPhrases.

Assign a catchphrase

  1. Go to the document to which you want to assign one or more catchphrases.
  2. Go to the Bibliographical Data. In the line Catchphrases, you see all catchphrases previously assigned to the actual document, at the beginning there are no assigned catchphrases.
  3. In the menu bar click Hit and than the link Catchphrase Tree [Ctrl+Alt+C] or use the button . A new window opens showing the entire set of catchphrases across the complete EIDOweb or EIDOpat database in tree structure. No second window will be opened, if a catchphrase tree has been opened before. Be aware that some or at the beginning all of the catchphrases might not be assigned to documents! Therefore, the catchphrase tree does not only contain the catchphrases for a single document but all catchphrases defined in EIDOpat. As mentioned above, the catchphrases cannot be modified or deleted in the EIDOweb catchphrase tree, but only in EIDOpat.
  4. By clicking the + or - signs, open or close the sub-trees in the catchphrase tree window. Click all the catchphrases you want to assign to the actual document.
    You can use [Alt+N] to navigate through the catchword tree, the next catchword is always selected.
    Attention! The catchword is accepted with a double-click or with [Alt+H].
  5. After having assigned all catchphrases, close the catchphrase tree window. Any number of catchphrases can be assigned to a document.
  6. The Catchphrases line of the Bibliographical Data now shows also the newly assigned catchphrases.
  7. If the administrator opens the same document in EIDOpat, the same catchphrases are shown here, because EIDOweb and EIDOpat use the same database.

Search catchphrase in the tree

You can search catchwords in the tree by entering your search in the search field [Alt+F]. Wildcard searches * are allowed. The search is case-insensitive.
With the button [Alt+L] you start the search. To continue searching, click on the button again or [Alt+L].

View catchphrases

All catchphrases assigned to a document (show.jsp) are displayed in the Bibliographical data tab, and here in the line Catchphrases. The catchphrases can be seen here by all users allowed to this document. The catchphrase tree consisting of all previously catchphrases across all documents is displayed in a window as described above.

Search for catchphrases

Your company in general monitors hundreds or thousands of IP rights. The documents belonging to these IP rights are available as PDF files, for example by downloading the documents from the patent office Internet databases. The plurality of theses files would need extensive memory capacities and evoke long process time, if all the files were permanently stored in the EIDOweb database. Therefore, it is more efficient to provide a single user with a full document only in case he/she really needs it. By clicking the 'Order full doc' link, the user sends a request for the actual document to be downloaded and stored in the EIDOweb database. EIDOweb regularly checks these and other requests, and if there are enough requests, EIDOweb starts to work off all requests. The time between sending the order request until the download of the document may take a few seconds or some hours depending on EIDOweb's workload and Internet accessibility (some hours is the exception!). Check on the Files tab or the Full Document tab whether the download is finished and you can view the full document by clicking the appropriate link. Depending on the configuration, an information email is sent to the user as soon as the order request is worked off. In the course of downloading a full document, the bibliographical data, claims and description and family data may also be updated for this document.

Go to Order full document do:

Terms "full text", "Full document"

EIDOweb in Different Languages

EIDOweb in Different Languages

In the Internet you often find web pages in more than one language. Therefore, the standard content negotiation has been developped. This standard enables the user to define his/her preferred languages in which he/she wants to read the web pages. The webpage version is then "negotiated" between your browser and the website server: the browser sends your language settings to the server which then decides which version is passed back.

What to do if a web page is displayed in a wrong language?

The first and most possible reason why a web page is displayed in a wrong language is a browser not configured for the preferred language. Please read the paragraph about How to configure the language settings to solve this problem.

The second reason concerns defective or incorrectly configured caches. This is a growing problem, because more and more ISPs see a way in caches to reduce the network traffic. Please read the paragraph about Remark about buffering web servers, if you think that you do not use any such server.

The third reason is that the EIDOLOGIC web server causes problems. However, this has occurred only in a few cases so far. Therefore, please check at first the first two reasons before contacting us.

After having solved the language problem, please remove everything from your local cache - from the hard disk and from the storage) in your browser, before starting again EIDOweb.

How to configure the language settings

Set the preferred language in your browser

The standard language is defined by a browser variable which is transmitted to the web server:

FireFox

Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Edit language

Internet Explorer Windows

Tools or View or Extras -> Internet Options -> (General) Languages

Internet Explorer MacOS

Edit -> Preferences -> Web Browser -> Languages / Fonts

Opera Windows/MaxOS

File -> Preferences -> Languages

Chrome

Preferences -> Extended -> Languages -> Language

Expert Search

Expert Search

The Expert mode allows to create individual and complex search queries. Use all available search queries in an emty query box or create complex search queries with Boolean Operators.

The Expert mode may be the preferred search mode for experienced searchers, familiar with patent searches. In contrast to the Beginner´s mode a large search query box is providet for entering search terms and the respective operators; the prescribed syntax must be followed exactly.

Choose from a list of availabe fields in which fields you want to search. Click on the chosen field to transmit it to the search query box. You can also directly enter the field code in the search query box.

Note!

Please use double quotes ( " ) around each search term. All date values need to be entered in the format DD.MM.YYYY

The maximum length of an expert query is limited to approx. 4000 characters.

At the bottom of the search form two buttons are provided:

Submit your request by clicking the "Start Search" button. The hits will be displayed in the form of a result list.

Press the "Reset" button to reset the search form with their inital values.


NEAR Operator

!["WORD1","WORD2",...;max_span;order]

Use the NEAR operator to return a score based on the proximity of two or more query terms. You can provide how far the terms may differ from eachother and if the terms must have the specified or a randomized order.

  • word 1-n

    Specify the terms in the query seperated by commas. The query terms can be single words or phrases.

  • max_span Optional

    Optionally specify the size of the biggest clump. The default is 100. It returns an error if you specify a number greater than 100. A clump is the smallest group of words in which all query terms occur. All clumps begin an end with a query term.

    Use semicolons to seperate the query terms.

  • Order Optional

    Use TRUE to search for terms in the order you specify. The default is FALSE.

    Use a semicolon for seperation from max_span

Example:

Search: Search for applicant Eidologic GmbH

Search term: PA !["Eidologic","GMBH";1;TRUE]

Catchphrases

Another particularly are catchphrases Catchphrases. For the search term Catchphrases click on the button . Following select .
You can click on Catchphrases, to transmit it in the search query box. After each catchphrase you can click on the respective button to transmit the Boolean Operators and .


Search fields with special characteristics

  • Grouping TI;AB;CL;DE;PA;IN (TX)

    With the search field TX you can get faster response, if you link the fields Title (TI), Abstract (AB), Claims (CL) or Description (DE) with the fields Applicant (PA) and or Inventor (IN).

    Example:

    Search: Search for the keyword "Patent" in Abstract and Applicant "Eidologic"

    Search string: TX = (PA = "Eidologic" & AB = "Patent")

  • Grouping Evaluation (UX)

    For an exact search in the evaluations you need the search field UX.

    Evaluation terms can be searched within the same evaluation dataset.

    There is a difference if you search for evaluator Mustermann and criterion notice with or without grouping. In the first example all patents will be found with evaluator Herr Mustermann and any evaluator who has evaluated the patent as notice. The result for the second example will be all patents with evaluator Herr Mustermann, which he also has evaluated with notice.

    Example:

    Search: Search all patents for evaluator Mustermann, which he has evaluated with notice.

    Search string: UX = (UN = "Mustermann" & UB = "Kenntnisnahme")

  • "to be evaluated (UNB)" und "Evaluated (UBW)"

    Use these fields without Comparison Operators!

    Example:

    Search: Search for all to be evaluated patents and applicant "Eidologic"

    Search string: PA = "Eidologic" & UNB

    Example:

    Search: Search for all to be evaluated patents of evaluator Mustermann

    Search string: UX = (UN = "Mustermann" & UNB)
