Smart Search automatically performs keyword searches for related words and synonyms of the original query. On Smart Search, there is no need to input any syntax. It’s similar to the Keyword Expansion feature. However, with Smart Search, the searches are performed on all of the related keywords, whereas Keyword Expansion allows you to fine-tune searches based on your own criteria. To use Smart Search, please follow the steps below:
- In Quick Search, simply switch from Keyword Search to Smart Search, input your text query without any syntax, and click on to search.
2. Results will show all of the patents with keywords related to what you have entered.
