The Patent Cooperation Treaty Collection
Full text data for Patent Cooperation Treaty (WO/PCT) applications dates back to the first PCT application, covering from October 19, 1978 to date. No known gaps in coverage exist. Abstracts and titles are present in English and the original language for many records.
The presence of both English and original language abstracts and titles are a benefit to users who can search in more than one language. As with all Optical Character Recognition (OCR) data, users should be aware that the full text of the PCT collection may contain scanning errors. For completeness it is recommended that users conduct multiple search strategies, rather than relying on keyword searching alone. The reliance on OCR data may also impact the automatic chemical parsing used by SureChem.
