NEW YORK – (Business Wire) LexisNexis, a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions, has added full-text patent records from ‘BRIC’ countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) to its TotalPatent™ research service – extending its market leading position in patent research by offering information from 27 patent authorities worldwide, as well as bibliographic and abstract information from 96 authorities.

TotalPatent is a patent research, retrieval and analysis solution offering the broadest and deepest collection of online first-level patent information available anywhere. The new full-text records from the four BRIC countries are all searchable in machine-translated English. Collectively, they represent an addition of 4.7 million full-text records, bringing the total number of accessible, full-text records to more than 40 million. Of these, more than 80 percent are now searchable with English search terms.

TotalPatent users now have greater control over the patent research process thanks to an integration of semantic and Boolean search technology, which allows for a simple, streamlined user interface that matches their typical daily workflow. The semantic search solution from LexisNexis, developed in alliance with Dallas-based PureDiscovery™, is setting a new standard in online patent research by cutting through the problem of information overload and enabling researchers to directly identify and access specific patent research they need.  Source:
