Looking for Japanese patents? PS improves search efficiency and delivers relevant results by enabling Japan’s classification systems to be used as search parameters. For example, you can use F-term search to locate utility patents that share similar technical features, without the extraneous noise. D-term can be applied to design patents, so choosing this as a search parameter refines your results by showing similar or identical design features.
These search parameters can be found in both the Quick Search and Advanced Search (PS Premium only) tabs, where you can key in multiple queries (separated by a space).
