I've been using Lens.org from quite sometime now and I am stuck on the exporting part. I can't add more than "top 10k results" in a collection and hence can't export more than that. The number of patents in my search query is well, above 50k.

Is there any alternative from where I can get data in similar format?

To clear up any confusion, Lens.org is a free patent database. I'm not sure if this is the right community to ask this question.

  • I suppose you could break up your query with date ranges and merge after exporting.

According to The Lens' support pages:

The lens supports exporting of metadata for up to 1000 search results or 10,000 collection items. You can access the export function via its icon on the result listing header or from the “Collections” tab of the Work Area. When exporting from the result listing header, the export function takes into account any filtering or sorting you may have done, giving you the ability to finely tune the documents you wish to export.

You might try to break up your collection by date ranges and then merge after exporting. There may be other sites that are better suited to your needs.

  • This actually worked. The only problem was confirming the date of last patents in collection and then filtering my search query. A little extra effort but it works. Thanks! Aug 24, 2017 at 6:20
