FILE UPDATES

1. BEILSTEIN NOW WITH MORE THAN 10,000,000 COMPOUNDS

More than 290,000 new compounds and recent supplementary data for approximately 170,000 compounds were added to BEILSTEIN. Currently, BEILSTEIN contains more than 10,000,000 organic compounds and over 8,700,000 substances with information on reactions.

The database summary sheet is available in STNGuide and on the Web on our Database List.

 

2. CA/CAPLUS - ENHANCED WITH FRENCH AND GERMAN ABSTRACTS; PATENT COVERAGE ENHANCED

Enhanced with French and German abstracts

French- and German-language abstracts in basic patents from the European Patent Office (EPO) are now included in CAplus. These abstracts are only included when an English-language abstract is not available.

In patents that are indexed by CAS, French- and German-language abstracts are replaced by English versions shortly after the record is added to CAplus. French- and German-language abstracts are searchable in Basic Index (BI) in their respective languages until replaced by the English versions. Records are added to CA only after indexing and the addition of English-language abstracts is complete.

Patents with selectively covered International Patent Classification (IPC) codes that are not indexed by CAS retain the original French- and German-language abstracts in CAplus. These records are not included in CA.

Patent coverage enhanced

Patent coverage in CA/CAplus has been enhanced to now include:

  • Complete International Patent Classification (IPC) reclassification data for the first half of 2007
  • Patents from the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KR) through late-January 2007

In addition, bibliographic data and abstracts in patent applications from the Indian Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs, and Trade Marks (IN) are now available in CAplus within 14 days of publication.

For additional information, visit
http://www.cas.org/expertise/cascontent/caplus/patcoverage/index.html

The Database Summary Sheets are available in STNGuide and on the Web on our Database List.

 

3. FSTA - NEW EDITION OF THESAURUS AVAILABLE

The Food Science and Technology Abstracts (FSTA) Thesaurus is under constant review. It's compiled specifically as a companion and user aid to facilitate searching of the bibliographic database FSTA - Food Science and Technology Abstracts.

A new edition of the thesaurus is now available online.

This eight edition has a total of 10,246 terms, including 700 new terms added since the last edition. All these terms are carefully chosen keywords relating to the fields of food science, food technology and food-related human and pet nutrition. Selection is based upon frequency of occurrence in FSTA.

Obesity, health and nutrition issues now feature widely in the expanded coverage of FSTA and therefore snack foods of various types have been added to the keyword terms in the FSTA Thesaurus, Eighth Edition.

Also important new journals have been added to the serial publications list covered by IFIS during 2007.

The printed version of the FSTA Eight Edition Thesaurus and an electronic version (ASCII text only) are available from the producer at http://www.foodsciencecentral.com

The Database Summary Sheet is available in STNGuide and at:
http://www.stn-international.com/stndatabases/databases/fsta.html

 

4. USGENE - NOW AVAILABLE ON STN

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Genetic Sequence Database (USGENE), produced by SequenceBase Corporation, is now available on STN. USGENE brings together USPTO sequence data with key elements of bibliographic and full-text data to provide a unified platform in which patent searchers can combine sequence data and patent claims text searching.

Coverage includes all available peptide and nucleic acid sequences from published applications and issued patents of the USPTO from 1982 to the present. Each USGENE record represents a specific sequence found in a USPTO patent. USGENE currently includes more than 6 million sequence records, with updates occurring weekly and records typically available within 7 days of publication by the USPTO.

USGENE records include:

  • Original patent title, abstract, and claims
  • Patent assignee and full inventor names
  • Publication, application, and parent case WIPO/PCT numbers and dates
  • Organism name, sequence length, and SEQ ID number
  • Feature tables for modifications and other features
  • Links to USPTO full-text patent documents (with new version of STN Express)

USGENE provides three sequence searching methods:

  • BLAST® for advanced similarity searching based on the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) BLAST algorithm
  • GETSIM for advanced similarity searching based on the FASTA algorithm
  • GETSEQ for simple fragment or motif sequence queries

Sequence data can be obtained with STN command line searching or the Sequence Search Assistant in STN® on the WebSM. For more precise answer sets, sequence search results can be combined with text searching of the Title (TI), Abstract (AB), and Exemplary Claims (ECLM) fields. Current-awareness alerts (SDIs), including sequence similarity alerts, are available weekly.

Explore USGENE with EUR/USD 100 credit toward connect time, display, print, and sequence search charges. The credit will be automatically applied to your invoiced charges beginning August 1, 2007, and carried over until the EUR/USD 100 is used or until September 30, 2007.

The Database Summary Sheet is available in STNGuide and on the Web on our Database List.

 

5. USPATFULL/USPAT2 - ENHANCED WITH IPC RECLASSIFICATION

USPATFULL/USPAT2 now includes complete International Patent Classification (IPC) reclassification data for the first half of 2007. More than four million patents in USPATFULL and 480,000 patents in USPAT2 include reclassifications.

The Database Summary Sheets are available in STNGuide and on the Web on our Database List.

7. X.25 ACCESS TO STN KARLSRUHE IS BEING ELIMINATED BY JANUARY 2008

For many years STN Karlsruhe has offered access the STN databases via X.25. In the meantime, the TCP/IP has become standard and is used by the majority of the STN customers. The X.25 technology is no longer upgraded or supported - neither by the telecommunication providers, nor by our IT service partners.

This means that we will have to deactivate the X25 accesses on January 31, 2008, because we will no longer be able to ensure the usual quality and reliability of this service.

Therefore, please switch over to the already available TCP/IP accesses to STN as soon as possible. If necessary, discuss the required measures with your IT, network and security experts to make sure you will be able to continue using STN without any problems after January 31, 2008.

Should you have any concerns as to the security of TCP/IP access, or if your IT infrastructure does not support access via TCP/IP (Port 23), please check our new SSL/VPN option. This option provides secure, encoded access to STN, is much faster than Datex-P and will most probably comply with your IT security regulations. For further information, please visit the STN homepage at http://www.stn-international.de/stninterfaces/secure/express/SSLVPN.html

We apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
