Patent Searching For New Inventors - Searching By Keyword


9 of 10

Using A Keyword Phrase Plus
Keyword Phrase Plus

You can use a keyword phrase and another word.

You can use a keyword phrase like "ice cream" or "jigsaw puzzle" and another word that describes the invention. This will give you more accurate results.

In the example above, I searched for patents that have the phrase "star wars" AND the word toy.

Note: Remember to put quotes around the keyword phrase. You do not have to put quotes around a single keyword.
