Diamond file - if you really look for complete coverage

Lighthouse IP is excited to announce its launch of the Diamond file. This file provides a unique data collection consisting of bibliographic and legal status information from around the world, covering near 150 countries. When analyzing the DOCDB file (bibliographic data), one will find only 48 current authorities in the file, hence Diamond file offers a unique expansion of coverage.

Through our network of partners and agents that we utilize for sourcing our trademark content, we have also been able to source over 100 authorities publishing status information around the world. The objective of the Diamond file is to include at least all PCT member states, so that the total number of bibliographic authorities will be 152.

The Diamond file consists of two data sets. The first one is the Diamond biblio file, and it contains the countries and data as mentioned above. The second data set is the Diamond legal status file, which is comparable in structure and operational method as the INPADOC file. However, in INPADOC there are only 33 countries that are updated regularly. In the Diamond file almost 100 authorities are available and updated regularly. 


The Diamond file has been released on March 30, 2018. Delivery will be facilitated in XML via API to partners and clients.
