    IPSWICH, Mass. — March 8, 2016 — R&D teams and corporate librarians can now quickly determine the novelty of an idea or technology across the broadest set of content available with the introduction of Global Patents™ from EBSCO Information Services. The online resource opens up a wealth of patent information to researchers and operational professionals.

    Updated monthly, Global Patents includes more than 77 million patent records — with over 29 million in full text — from more than 100 patent authorities around the world. R&D specialists can combine Global Patents with EBSCO’s vast collection of STM content to create comprehensive research landscapes and analyze the novelty of a given development opportunity.

    Researchers access content via the EBSCOhost® or EBSCO Discovery Service™ platforms, or directly within their company’s intranet. Because the content is designed to be accessible for all user types, it provides a jumping-off point for all levels of researchers — especially those on R&D teams who may not have a great deal of experience with complex patent searching. Using Global Patents, R&D teams can access the information they need to assess the viability of new projects without having to enlist premium patent search services — saving the organization valuable time and money.

    EBSCO Senior Director of Product Management Joe Tragert says Global Patents can play a key role in making patent searching accessible to organizations enterprise-wide. “In many companies, patent searching is not easily accessed or convenient for non-IP professionals due to technical or licensing restrictions. We have designed Global Patents to be accessible and usable by all people in the organization. Global Patents opens up a trove of valuable information to more people in more places.”
