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.

  1. 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.
  2. In the left pane, filter the list of searches you want to see by selecting options from the View by, Client, and Date links.
  3. In the Trails list (also located in the left pane), select the checkboxes for the searches you want to view.
  4. In the map, select an "open" icon (Open/Close list) in your results.
  5. Click the link for the document you want to view. The Document box is displayed.
  6. 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.
  7. Repeat these steps to select up to two more documents for comparison (three total).
    Note: To remove a document you selected for comparison, select the Find Similar Documents tray and select the X next to the search you want to remove.
  8. Click the Find Similar Documents button. The Find Similar Documents For dialog box appears.
  9. Select Find Similar Documents. The list of similar documents or items appears.
