(Alexandria, Va., USA, 14 March 2013)– The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced the addition of English-translated patent records from Vietnam and Thailand, as well as Malaysian full-text patents, to Thomson Innovation®, the world’s leading patent intelligence and collaboration platform.
The addition of these patent documents enables IP professionals to better understand the state of prior art in Southeast Asia, make more informed filing decisions, identify potential partners and more. This is all possible through the editorially enhanced content in Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPISM) and its integration with Thomson Innovation to provide a single platform for easily searching patents from the newly added authorities alongside Japanese, Korean and Chinese records (in English) and scientific literature.
The addition of content from Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand is the first of three planned content sets to be added to Thomson Innovation this year. Thomson Reuters plans even more expanded patent coverage in 2013, including other emerging markets in Southeast Asia. Many patent databases are available exclusively through Derwent World Patents Index.
Thomson Innovation is the only patent research platform that enables users to search Asian patent data (in English) alongside global patents, scientific literature, and business and news information. Coupled with Derwent World Patents Index, the industry’s most trusted collection of editorially enhanced patent records from 50 global issuing authorities, it includes English-language abstracts and titles, making it easier for researchers to quickly find the information they need to make informed decisions.
