Can LexisNexis® Expert Research On-Demand provide expert referrals?
The answer is a qualified "yes." We refer to this search as "Experts you can use." We attempt to locate names of experts who may be interested in helping you develop your case. These names come from our database or from other sources we have previously utilized successfully. It is important to note that Expert Research On-Demand does not endorse these experts as to their competency or willingness to help.

What is a Testimonial History Report?
This report details cases in which an individual has been involved as an expert witness. In some cases the expert may have given deposition or trial testimony while in others the expert was named but testimony has not yet been taken. The report may also include a listing of documents, such as depositions, trial transcripts and CVs which can be purchased directly from Expert Research On-Demand.

Am I assessed a surcharge for longer Testimonial History Reports?
No. LexisNexis Expert Research On-Demand assesses a flat fee for a successful testimonial history search. If we can provide at least one case in which an expert has been involved, we consider that to be a successful search and we assess the fee. We assess the same fee whether we have one case or a thousand cases.

Are there any charges to establish an account?
No. Account setup is free. You are charged based on the successful provision of your service request. See the LexisNexis® Expert Research On-Demand Services and Pricing Guide in the literature tab of this website for details.

Why does LexisNexis Expert Research On-Demand require information before a request can be processed?
LexisNexis Expert Research On-Demand is predicated upon the mutual sharing of valuable information. Expert Research On-Demand begins the sharing process by asking for case details in order to initiate a search. These details are then added to the database ensuring that up-to-date information will be available. While we realize that completing an Expert Research On-Demand request form can take a few minutes, the overall benefit to the network cannot be overemphasized.

How do I know if copies of depositions, trial transcripts and other documents are available from LexisNexis Expert Research On-Demand?
When Expert Research On-Demand has copies of documents, they are listed on the first page of the Testimonial History Report under the heading "Other Documents Available." Here on the Expert Research On-Demand website, any documents in our possession will be noted just beneath the expert's profile information.

What is a State License Discipline Search?
Depending on the specialty, experts may be licensed by a professional board, such as a physician licensed by a state medical board. These boards may take disciplinary action against a licensed professional for a variety of reasons. We will inform you if disciplinary action has or has not been taken against the expert by the appropriate licensing board. If discipline is found, we also send a copy of any public documents pertaining to the action.

What databases do you search for an Article Written by an Expert?
We search approximately 40 to 80 databases for articles authored by the expert. Many of these databases only reference the author's initial(s) and last name. Consequently, we will search for articles which include either the author's full name or the author's last name and initial(s). If references are found, we send those abstracts.

What do you search for in an Articles Naming Search?
We search a worldwide database of newspaper and magazine articles to learn if the individual's name has appeared. This search may yield innocuous information about the person in question but can also reveal onerous information such as a criminal background or other kinds of information detrimental to the person's reputation.

What if an Article Search yields a large number of results?
If more than 25 abstracts are found, our clients may have us narrow the search using some case-specific terms or other key words. Supplying detailed case issues on your request can help us narrow your search, if necessary, and eliminate articles by other authors with the same initials as the expert involved in your case.

What is included in a Similar Case Search?
The details of other cases with elements similar to yours. Examples would be the requester asks us to find any other cases involving damage to the medial nerve of the hand, or cases involving ACME Manufacturing radial arm saw injuries. These searches are case-facts-specific and NOT expert-specific.

Can LexisNexis Expert Research On-Demand provide expert referrals?
The answer is a qualified "yes." We refer to this search as "Experts you can use." We attempt to locate names of experts who may be interested in helping you develop your case. These names come from our database or from other sources we have previously utilized successfully. It is important to note that Expert Research On-Demand does not endorse these experts as to their competency or willingness to help.

What is included in a Scientific and Medical Literature Search?
LexisNexis Expert Research On-Demand can search a wide variety of databases for articles pertaining to a specific subject matter. If you need to learn more about a specific procedure or product, Expert Research On-Demand will search for and provide a list of abstracts. Again, supplying Expert Research On-Demand with detailed information about your case and what you hope to find will help us focus and search for the most relevant articles.

Is a confirmation generated whenever I make an online request for services?
Yes. LexisNexis® Expert Research On-Demand should always confirm your request. If you do not receive a confirmation, it means we never received your request or your e-mail address was not provided. If this happens, you should contact us by phone at 1 800-521-5596.

How can we participate in the free Electronic Archive Program?
Simply notify us that your firm would like to participate. The minimum requirements are that all documents be ASCII files and that they be accompanied by an index which reflects the expert's name, specialty, city and state, the case name, the date of the deposition and a one or two sentence description of the case issues.

How do I retrieve transcripts that my firm has archived with LexisNexis Expert Research On-Demand?
Sign in and from the Client Area select the "Firm's Archive" button where you can search by an expert's name or view all the documents archived by your firm. Additionally when ordering other searches on a particular expert, any documents archived by your firm will be highlighted. All documents are available to all members of your firm at no charge. Your documents are redacted of personal identifying information (PII) such as full date of birth, social security number, etc., then indexed, stored and put in the password protected area. To ensure their continued availability, they are backed up in four secure locations.
