Viewing Individual Records
Clicking on the publication number or the title opens up the record on the same page; clicking on the icon on the right side of the page opens the record in a new window. Highlighting of the terms used in the search occurs sporadically and does not include any advanced features, such as user-defined highlighting. In fact, the page display is not customizable.
WIPS records contain mostly bibliographic data including family data and citations, if available. Full text is available as a separate download. See the Viewing Full Text section for more details. Many headings contain links to access more information. For example, in the figure below, the link to the "File Contents History" takes the user to the USPTO Public Pair site, the "Show Kind Code" link displays all available US Kind Codes, and the "All Claims" link displays the electronic text of all claims. IPC classification codes are always present, though the kind of IPC data (e.g. Core, Advanced, Invention, etc.) is not specified. For issued US patents, the current and original classification is typically present. Occasionally a floating box will appear on the right with links to other related art by the applicant, typically with US documents. This section of WIPS does not display unnecessary information; if the data is not there, WIPS does not include a heading or a link to other information.
The floating box of related applicant art is a nice touch because it includes a thumbnail of the most representative drawing, helping the user to quickly determine its relevancy. Occasionally there is a floating graphic such as a US flag or the INPADOC symbol on the record page. It appears at random, but seems to function as a reminder to the user what database they are viewing.
