    Saving Searches

    If you work on a specific search query, you'll want to save it so you can use it again in the future.  AcclaimIP supports a feature where you can save searches for easy recall later.

    I personally use the feature to save all my base queries.  A base query is a search that contains all the keywords and strings that describe one specific aspect of an invention.  I strongly recommend you build a library of relevant base queries, and save them to a folder called "Base Queries."  In this example, I expose my NFC base query.  I use this as my starting point when searching any technology related to NFC (Near Field Communications), and I never have to research all the terms which mean "NFC;" I just load my saved search.

    Research Folders Overview

    Research folders store two types of data.  

    • Saved Searches.
    • Patent Documents.  

    Research Folders can hold up to 50,000 documents each depending on the plan you signed up for.  They can be shared with other members of your team, and even with users outside your company as long as they also have an AcclaimIP account.

    Research Folders are more than just a place to store the results of your searches.  AcclaimIP's advanced syntax gives you the ability to find unions, intersections and differences between folders and are in themselves analysis tools.

    The contents of Folders can be charted together giving you the ability to chart two portfolios across the same dimensions for comparative charts.

    Setting User Preferences

    You can set your user Preferences so the application's default behavior is customized to suit your needs. For example, you can customize the following:

    1. Which data columns appear in your default search results.
    2. Default date ranges searched.
    3. Which collections are searched by default.
    4. Default sort (we recommend Relevancy unless there is specific reason to sort on another column).
    5. Overall look and feel of AcclaimIP including colors, window sizes, and wallpaper.
    6. Idle time before AcclaimIP automatically logs you out.

    The Keyword Analysis Tools

    AcclaimIP offers four tools for analyzing keywords in patents.

    1. Keyword Counter --> Counts the frequency of occurrence of terms and strings in a single patent and provides tools to construct queries.
    2. QueryFlow TermExtract --> Ranks the "importance" of terms using a TF/IDF algorithm and helps construct weighted queries.
    3. QueryFlow TermExtract for Multiple Patents --> Counts important terms from a set of up to 10 different patents, counts intersections, and constructs weighted queries.
    4. Document Clustering --> Document clustering bundles patents into multi-tier themes from a set of up to 1000 patents.
