What data is covered in an Amplified search?

Amplified includes more than 140+ million patent publications from 105 countries. Most patents are grouped into patent families. There are about 70 million simple families which cover about 125 million publications across multiple jurisdictions and languages. Patents without a family are still included in Amplified search results.

Data update schedule

Data is updated weekly. As a significant amount of new data is published each week, the data coverage numbers below are rough figures and represent the lower bound of coverage. 

English and non-English language search coverage

English searching includes original language publications and machine translations of non-English publications such as Chinese or Japanese patents.

  • Over 24 million publications are available in English original language
  • An additional 60 million+ publications are available via English machine translations
  • Text data is available for about 45 publishing authorities
  • Additional coverage spanning more than 60 more authorities includes at least bibliographic information and varying degrees of text coverage
  • In addition, Amplified supports additional coverage direct native language searching in Japanese, Korean, Chinese, German, Spanish, and French (Don’t see a language you want? Let us know!)
