How do I find documents that are similar to documents I select from my results?
Use the Find Similar Documents feature of the Research Map to find documents in a set of results that are similar to up to 3 documents listed on the map. Similarity is determined based on characteristics of the documents, such as legal topic. Typically, these are documents you viewed or delivered.
- To start, do one of the following:
- On the Lexis® home page, select the History pod, then select the Research Map link at the bottom of the pod.
- From the top of any page, select History, then Research Map.
- In the left pane, filter the list of searches you want to see by selecting options from the View by, Client, and Date links.
- In the Trails list (also located in the left pane), select the checkboxes for the searches you want to view.
- In the map, select an "open" icon () in your results.
- Click the link for the document you want to view. The Document box is displayed.
- Under Actions in the Document box, select Select this document to find similar. This adds the document to the Find Similar Documents box above the map.
- Repeat these steps to select up to two more documents for comparison (three total).
- Click the Find Similar Documents button. The Find Similar Documents For dialog box appears.
- Select Find Similar Documents. The list of similar documents or items appears.
