Expand Your Research with News, Legal & Public Records* Data—All in One Place

October 11, 2021 (3 min read)

“The more things change, the more they stay the same.”  It may be a time worn expression, but in this case, it comes with a fresh perspective. Our flagship Nexis® research solution—ideal for use cases ranging from investigative journalism to donor prospecting—recently underwent a visual redesign. The new look, which streamlines and organizes information for easy scanning, complements critical features for helping you find and share relevant insights across your business. But unchanged—and unmatched in our industry—is the breadth and depth of our content collection. With 3X the licensed content of our competitors and more than 45,000 sources to tap, Nexis empowers efficient research that yields targeted results.

Today’s Headlines & Decades of Past News Content Too

When it comes to spotting industry trends or potentially disruptive events as they emerge, the global news content available in Nexis can’t be beat. In addition to the wide variety of traditional, broadcast and web news from authoritative international, regional, and local publishers, Nexis boasts a content archive going back 40+ years, ideal for deeper dives into a topic, company, or industry. On top of that, Nexis aggregates social commentary from a focused collection of sources, including industry experts and thought leaders.

Having content from the world’s leading publishers—accessible from a single platform—means you can save time and control costs more effectively. Fewer paywalls to disrupt the research flow; more precise search, plus post-search refinements to narrow in on articles of interest from the vastness of today’s 24/7/365 media landscape.

Legal Sources from International, Federal, State & Civil Courts
The source universe in Nexis doesn’t begin and end with news, either. On top of company data covering more than 280 million organizations around the world, Nexis features the industry's largest collection of dockets and documents, allowing you to stay current with court proceedings in international courts, as well as federal, state, and civil court filings in the U.S.

Reviewing this vast legal data collection can help you uncover potential financial or reputational risks. You can, for example, explore mentions of a company of interest to understand if doing business with the organization poses financial or reputational risks.  It also helps you stay alert to shifts in the regulatory environment that could impact your business.

Public Records* Aggregated from 10,000+ Sources

For approved use cases, Nexis® also connects you to LexisNexis® Public Records*. With more than 83 billion public records aggregated from 10,000+ sources, finding links between people, companies and locations could be a time-consuming process, but the sophisticated linking and reporting technology of LexisNexis® SmartLinx® does all the heavy lifting. As a result, you can quickly connect the dots whether you’re conducting due diligence on persons or organizations of interest or evaluating giving potential when engaged in donor prospecting.
