Announcing Version 4.4 (2017-02-25)

  • Added support for the new FULLPAT database from, replacing the PLUSPAT database.
  • Modified the filters for Ovid to be more forgiving of variations in file segment names for Embase and Medline.

Announcing Version 4.3 (2016-09-20)

  • The way that the source document is noted on has changed. Displays the source document in Abstract, Claims, and Independent Claims fields.
