Does information overload leave you worried that you might miss something?

Thorough news research doesn’t have to feel like trying to move a mountain. We catalogue our massive stockpile of Nexis content using LexisNexis® SmartIndexing Technology™, which lets you refine your searches across our vast database of news archives and wide-ranging content quickly and easily. Have the confidence you’ve done a comprehensive search—without all the manual data mining.

So how does our research indexing work? 
LexisNexis SmartIndexing Technology is a proprietary rule-based, automated classification system that analyzes and tags online documents for relevant subjects, industries, companies, organizations, people, and places.

What’s all that mean? It means it makes it easier for you to find results that actually match your search terms when fact checking stories. The search system automatically weeds out passing references for false hits, so you get only the most relevant results. We’re constantly rating the relevancy of results to ensure you’re seeing the best matches from your Nexis® searches.

Better yet, SmartIndexing captures results related to your topic even if the exact phrase you searched for isn’t present in a document. How does it determine relevancy? By also searching for variety of synonymous terms— such as industry jargon, slang or common terms for popular technologies or legislative actions— to ensure you don’t miss relevant articles.

SmartIndexing includes 350,000+ company name terms, thousands of people, industry and subject topics, and over 900 geographic terms covering cities, states, nations and regions worldwide.
