Thomson Innovation 2.0 Harnesses The Power Of DWPI With Leading Landscape Visualization Capability


New Release Enables Customers To Make Better Intellectual Property Decisions

London, United Kingdom – The Scientific business of Thomson Reuters today announced the forthcoming release of Thomson Innovation 2.0, the next generation of the company’s premier intellectual property (IP) research and analysis solution, with a preview of new content and functionality at the Online Information Conference 2008. The product will be available publicly 15 December 2008.

The ThemeScape landscape visualization tool enables an at-a-glance view of search results including first-level patent data, value-added patent information from Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPISM) , and scientific literature (comprising Web of Science®, Current Contents Connect®, Inspec® and ISI Proceedings). With the consistency of language used in DWPI’s all-English abstracts, the quality of the resulting analysis is far superior to that from a landscape map created with first-level patent data.

“Time and again we hear how important it is for customers to not only be able to search complete, reliable information, but to also make it actionable,” said David Brown, executive vice president for the Scientific business of Thomson Reuters. “Thomson Innovation 2.0 directly addresses this need and further cements the product’s position as the world’s leading IP research and analysis solution.”

Other enhancements in the release include:
• English translations of the titles, abstracts and all claims for Chinese utility models and Chinese applications, both from 2007 - present
• A clustering tool that automatically categorizes patent documents through the linguistic analysis of text found in user selected fields and establishes document relationships that otherwise would take hours, if not days, to complete
• Tracking functionality that enables the centralized control of managing research done across an organization, including reporting options for client chargebacks and cost allocation
