    5. Vendor: European Patent Office
    6. Coverage: When entering the esp@cenet service you are offered a choice of several databases. These databases differ in their data coverage. When searching in "worldwide patents", you will cover the largest range of documents. By searching in "Belgian patents", you will only cover the last two publication years of Belgian patent documents.

      Do not expect to cover the whole state-of-the-art by searching in national Patents only.

      Databases available on esp@cenet® have also some limitations in the number and the quality of fields accessible that should be considered when drawing conclusions from the result of a search.

      Commercial patent databases usually offer extra value, by the number of fields you can access, and due to the content of the abstract that has been rewritten to facilitate easieraccess to the document by keyword searches.

      To sum up, a patent database user should always be aware of the content of the database he is using and know the limitations of the fields.
  6. Essential Science Indicators (ESI)
    1. Database Name: Essential Science Indicators (ESI)
    2. Description: MPower Virtual Research Library. Essential Science Indicators can determine the influential individuals, institutions, papers, publications, and countries in their field of study — as well as emerging research areas that can impact their work. This unique and comprehensive compilation of science performance statistics and science trends data is based on journal article publication counts and citation data from Thomson Reuters databases. It is an analytical resource for policymakers, administrators, analysts and information specialists in government agencies, universities, corporations, private laboratories, publishing companies and foundations, as well as members of the scientific press and recruiters. Essential Science Indicators (ESI) is useful tool to help answer questions about research performance. For example: Which institutions produce the most highly-cited research in a particular field? Where does our institution rank in this group? Who are the most influential researchers in this field? Is our institutions citation activity on an upward or downward trend? How did changes in funding influence the impact of research in a particular country or institute? Which are the hottest topics in research right now? How does my article’s citation count compare to similar articles? ESI produces a variety of metrics and features such as Top 1% of Scientists and Institutions; Top 50% of Journals and Countries/Territories; Highly Cited Papers: Top 1% of cited papers per discipline; Hot Papers: Papers from the last two years that were cited the most (top 0.1%) in the last 2 months; Research Fronts: Creates clusters of highly cited articles, useful for identifying ground breaking discoveries
