How do I find documents similar to specific documents I have selected?

Use the Find Similar Documents option of the Research Map to find all documents that are similar to up to three documents selected from the same or different results sets. Similarity is determined based on characteristics of the documents, such as legal topic. Typically, these are documents you viewed or delivered.

To find similar documents, follow these steps.

  1. Display the Research Map by selecting Research Map at the bottom of the History pod on the home page or by selecting the History button at the top of any page and selecting Research Map at the bottom of the list that appears.
  2. In the left pane of the Research Map, find the search results containing the document or documents for which you want to find similar documents by using the Search Within History option and/or by selecting options from within the View by, Client, and Date filters.
  3. In the right pane, select the Open icon (Open/Close list) associated with the set of results containing the document for which you want to find similar documents.
  4. Select the document for which you want to find similar documents.
  5. In the Document dialogue box, under the Actions heading, select Select this document to find similar. The document is added to the Find Similar Documents list at the top of the Research Map.
    Note: To remove a document you have selected, select Find Similar Documents at the top of the map and select the x to the right of the document you want to remove.
  6. Repeat these steps to select up to three documents.
  7. Select Find Similar Documents at the top of the map. The list of selected documents appears.
  8. Select the Find Similar Documents button.
