Patent ID definition

Hello,

I am new to patentsview. To merge data from the g_assignee_disambiguated  dataset to additional information from espacenet, I would need to know how the variable "patent_id" is constructed. In particular, is it the numeric part of the "Publication number" the USTPO assigns, or something else?

Thank you very much.

Hello Sonja,

The patent_id variable in our data comes directly from the patent applications at USPTO. For example, in g_assignee_disambiguated, you might see a patent_id like 4325088. If you search for this patent id on USPTO's search website, you'll find the patent application associated with it, with the full document/patent number of US-4325088-A.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
