Assess lengthy documents faster with the KWIC™ display and use enhanced results document navigation

The KWIC™ (Key Words In Context) display option is now available with some Lexis Advance® results to help you quickly and efficiently determine the relevance of longer full-text documents. Plus, Lexis Advance now has enhanced navigation when you are viewing full-text documents.


Determine relevance using the KWIC display

Take advantage of the KWIC (Key Words In Context) display option, now available in Lexis Advance full-text cases, news and legal news documents, and IP content. Simply click the KWIC button in the top-right corner of the full-text document.

KWIC helps you assess relevance by displaying your highlighted search terms surrounded by a window of text you can adjust. (The default is 50 searchable words on each side of the search terms.)

You can change the number of words by selecting the KWIC ± 50 button once you select KWIC.

After you make the change, the new number setting remains until you change it again. You can also deliver (i.e., print, email, download) in KWIC for these content types.


Always know where you are in your results documents

Enhanced navigation enables you to quickly see where you are in your search results list, even when viewing a full-text document. Now, each full-text document you examine includes the results position, e.g., 1 of 94, at the top of the screen, along with the results list link and the next and previous document arrow links.
