Read Jinfo's fresh review of premium business, industry and news product Nexis, and find out about new developments and future plans.


With Nexis being such a popular purchase for many Jinfo subscribers, we thought it was time to revisit the product in a fresh review.

Nexis is a global premium news database and research platform, which Jinfo last reviewed a year ago.

New for 2017 is our in-depth review of the product, Jinfo Subscribers can sign in now to read "Product review of Nexis".

A reliable source - but can it be improved?

Since the 1970s, Nexis - part of legal and business information provider LexisNexis - has provided a deep archive of licensed news and business information content.

Researcher, Chris Porter, reviewed the product to find out if Nexis continues to grow and update its service, and if there are any areas it could still improve on.

As an aggregator of "over 40,000 licensed and web news and business information sources, with a very deep archive and functionality designed to support users with differing levels of search expertise", Chris was pleased to discover that Nexis has an active development programme of new features. 

Solid roadmap

Further developments include:

  • Improvements to the LexisNexis SmartIndexing taxonomy, making it easier to search across multiple languages
  • New design for email alerts, making them easier to read and manage.

But equally, there is still scope for further progress to be made.

The review found that there is work still to be done on company information and integration of visualisation/analytics capabilities: "Future plans include a continued emphasis on usability enhancements and a major focus on improving the display of company-related information, including tighter integration between Nexis and its Company Dossier sister product," Chris commented.
