Little things about Scientitic Watch and Information Professionnals

Nice site: FreePatentsOnline

with one comment

FreePatentsOnline search engine is one of the most powerful, fastest and easiest patent search engines on the web.

The search allows advanced search techniques such as word stemming, proximity searching, relevancy ranking and search term weighting to help you find exactly what you are looking for.

And, personal account features let you organize, annotate and share documents, and Alerts let you instantly be notified when new documents of interest are published.

My advise: don’t use the the basic form on the homepage (because it searches only on US patents), go directly on advanced search.

  1. I agree, FreePatentsOnline is among the top free patent search engines out there today. As you noted, spending a little time to get to know the more advanced features can pay off. Search term weighting has the potential to be a powerful and quick way to acquire more relevant results given some user practice. You can read more about how to use this feature on The Intellogist Blog here:

    Thanks for the mention of Intellogist, and keep up the good work on this blog!
