on Google's support page for patent searches (see here: https://support.google.com/faqs/answer/7049588?hl=en) it says that: "You can download up to the top 1000 results by clicking "Download (CSV)". This may take a few seconds to generate. Fewer than 1000 results may be returned." I want to see more than 1,000 of the results. Is there anyway to do that -- perhaps using a different search engine?


I would recommend The Lens. It allows download of either 1000 or 10,000 patents via their "Collections" feature. A found a blog post that goes through it step-by-step. They have two alternate formats to .csv.

  • The Lens also finds more relevant patents than Google Patents based on my experience. You inadvertently spelled “csv” as “cvs”. – Eric Shain Apr 5 at 12:53
