The STN partners, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and FIZ Karlsruhe, are pleased to announce that Version One of the new STN platform is now available in beta for fixed fee customers. This is the first major milestone in a multi-year initiative to create the next generation of STN, the choice of patent experts.
The focus of this first version has been on developing the core search and retrieval system for new STN. This release combines the complete CAS REGISTRYSM and Chemical Abstracts content along with Thomson Reuters’ Derwent World Patents Index® and powerful new search features to support preliminary searches in these key areas:• Chemistry and general technology research
The STN Partners will incorporate additional content and functionality in the new architecture with ongoing versions. Full text patent content will be added throughout 2013.
“In October 2011, we announced that a new STN platform was under development and that a completely new STN will be phased into the market beginning in 2012. Consistent with the long tradition of STN keeping promises to customers, we are pleased to achieve this milestone of beta availability of the first version to our customers around the world who use STN on a fixed fee basis,” said Bob Massie, President of CAS.
"We are confident that patent search professionals will be very pleased with the industry-leading power and precision that we have built into the new STN,” said Sabine Brünger-Weilandt, President and CEO of FIZ Karlsruhe. “Our global advisory council has been instrumental in providing guidance and identifying how STN can meet needs not met by other search services.”
The STN Advisory Council members have been assisting in this large development effort, and confirm that CAS and FIZ Karlsruhe are building a state-of-the-art product for professionals:
“It has been amazing to see the new STN develop over the last two years - from a concept through the alpha version to the present beta version. This new STN will have important new features: No system limits! Simultaneous searching of Registry and Chemical Abstracts! Quick previews of references retrieved! I am looking forward to using new STN to increase my productivity and enhance management of my search projects.”-- Gayenel Rice, 3M
The current STN system, including STN Express® and the other STN products will continue to be available and fully supported throughout the development of the new platform.Related links

Glacier decline in the first decade of the 21st century has reached a historical record, since the onset of direct observations. Glacier melt is a global phenomenon and will continue even without further climate change. This is shown in the latest study by the World Glacier Monitoring Service under the lead of the University of Zurich, Switzerland.
The World Glacier Monitoring Service, domiciled at the University of Zurich, has compiled worldwide data on glacier changes for more than 120 years. Together...
Using ultracold atoms trapped in light crystals, scientists from the MPQ, LMU, and the Weizmann Institute observe a novel state of matter that never thermalizes.
What happens if one mixes cold and hot water? After some initial dynamics, one is left with lukewarm water—the system has thermalized to a new thermal...
Physicists from Regensburg and Marburg, Germany have succeeded in taking a slow-motion movie of speeding electrons in a solid driven by a strong light wave. In the process, they have unraveled a novel quantum phenomenon, which will be reported in the forthcoming edition of Nature.
