The LexisNexis® archive dates back over 35 years, with millions of new and updated documents loaded every day, directly from publishers. By focusing on authoritative sources of news and business information, users are able to avoid the “noise” and content credibility gap that can be associated with some free Web content, and instantly access relevant business information.
LexisNexis applies a proprietary, rule-based, classification system known as LexisNexis SmartIndexing Technology™ to identify themes or subjects in each document. Using LexisNexis SmartIndexing Technology, each news article in the Nexis® database is categorized against one or more of the 4,000+ subject terms. SmartIndexing is more effective than simply looking for a keyword as it applies a sophisticated weighting mechanism based on the frequency of a unique collection of words and phrases that would be relevant to a particular subject.

What is Taxonomy?
Taxonomy is a "knowledge organization system," a set of words that have been organized to control the use of terms used in a subject field into a vocabulary to facilitate the storing and retrieving of items from a repository.
What we offer:
LexisNexis Taxonomies provide clear definitions and a sound structure for categorizing and organizing information and news stories. With more than 10 years of experience creating and honing our taxonomies, our customers can be confident that applying these taxonomies to their content will result in a meaningful information categorization system--one that can be searched quickly to surface articles of interest.
