The STN Full-Text Solution: Accessing the full text of patents and journal articles

With the STN Full-Text Solution, full text is only a few mouse clicks away! 

STN International offers an unparalleled collection of essential science and technology databases and outstanding tools for search, retrieval, analysis, and reporting. Some databases on STN contain the full text of patents or technical disclosures. However, when a database does not contain full text, the STN Full-Text Solution is available to help you access the full text of an original document, whether it is a journal article, a patent, or other published material!

By clicking the "Full-Text" button in an STN database record, you will get seamless access to the full text of the original document via the STN Full-Text Solution. The invoice amounts for full-text deliveries are listed on your monthly STN invoice.

The STN Full-Text Solution consists of two services:

  • CAS Full Text Options: A free service that provides access to full-text documents which are electronically available with publishers, subscription agencies, patent offices, or patent document services. An access to your corporate library holdings can also be integrated. 
  • FIZ AutoDoc: FIZ Karlsruhe's broker service for document delivery.
