Milestone celebration: over 100 million patent documents in PATENTSCOPE

January 12, 2022

PATENTSCOPE gives now access to over 100 million searchable inventions: all published PCT applications and 73 national and regional patent collections of participating IP offices. Additional national/regional collections will be added in 2022.

It is recalled that, in PATENTSCOPE, patent publications are aggregated for search and display: for each jurisdiction, patent republications sharing the same filing number are not counted separately from their first publication.  As a result, the 100 million inventions milestone corresponds to around 125 million patent publications. Detailed information on the current coverage is available.
