Smart Search

Smart Search automatically performs keyword searches for related words and synonyms of the original query. With 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 related keywords, whereas Keyword Expansion allows users to fine-tune their searches based on their individual criteria. To use Smart Search, please follow the steps below:

  1. In Quick Search, switch from Keyword Search to Smart Search, input the required text query (without any syntax,) and click on  to search.

         2.     The results will show all of the patents with keywords related to what has been entered.
