On September 30, IP.com pushed live several updates to our InnovationQ and InnovationQ Plus platforms including integrating the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) OnePetro library, adding more patent authorities and many other user-requested upgrades. In conjunction with the 4.3 release, IP.com is introducing Insight Reports that analyze actionable data on technologies and patents to drive business decisions. Learn more about all these exciting changes below:
OnePetro is an online library of technical literature for the oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) industry. With contributions from 20 publishing partners, and access to 200,000 documents, OnePetro is the definitive resource on upstream oil and gas. The SPE uses its resources and technology to operate OnePetro on behalf of its publishing partners.
With the addition of indexing the full-text OnePetro content, IP.com expands its database of more than 100 million patent and non-patent literature documents within one platform. Besides the OnePetro library, IP.com has the only semantic tool that indexes the full text of both the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) publications. Additionally, InnovationQ and InnovationQ Plus search the most robust Prior Art Database, global patent authorities and the IBM Technical Disclosure Bulletin, among other sources.
Insight Reports act as a snapshot of the past, present and emerging trends in the marketplace. They enable the evaluation of queries through a variety of statistical, modeling, data mining and machine-learning techniques. The result is a streamlined process that helps you make critical decisions faster.

Key User-Requested 4.3 Updates
Our September release of InnovationQ/InnovationQ Plus also addresses some of the most highly requested features from our users. We have added a significant new non-patent literature (NPL) collection, new patent authorities, extended patent family, additional options to export claims to Excel, and more. The aim is to continue to help users find and understand relevant art efficiently and gain actionable insight.
Family-enhanced fields feature
Global patents and applications are more important than ever, and our new “family-enhanced” feature helps fill the gap of global patents and applications in English. When assignee or inventor names, titles, or abstracts are unavailable in English, we provide supplemental information from a simple family member equivalent to make it easier to find patent documents when searching by names and understand important documents by displaying the supplemental information.
Extended Patent Families
In addition to the DOCDB-based simple patent family, we have added an extended patent family. Extended patent family is integrated throughout InnovationQ/InnovationQ Plus everywhere simple family is, including filtering, document preview, de-dup options and exports. Extended patent family information can enable greater understanding to a patent assignee’s effort or a patent’s breadth and geographic spread.
Improved Visuals Workflow
The improvements help integrate accessing charts for visual searching, review and gaining insight into the workflow. Access charts without navigating away from the result set, and more easily find and navigate between charts of interest. These visuals help make sense of potentially thousands of documents to provide insight into trends, opportunities and risks that you just can’t see by looking at a list of documents.
Updated/New Patent Authorities
Our Australian patent coverage has improved, and our current single Australian collection will be split into two: patents and patent applications. Additionally, we have added several more patent authorities to our already robust list: Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia/Serbia and Montenegro.
