During the month of July, Amanda Stotler hosted a live chat answering questions about Lexis Advance. One of the top questions asked was how the pricing and searching works on Advance. Amanda has shared her top 3 cost-effective tips when searching on Lexis Advance.

Tip #1: Take advantage of the transparent pricing mode. Lexis Advance® utilizes a document access pricing model. This means that users with a qualified subscription can run as many searches as they want from the Red Search Box and will only incur a charge when they access a document outside of their subscription plan. For cost recovery purposes, all inside and out-of-plan documents are recorded to support client bill back.

Tip #2: Use Work Folders to help organize you research in a cost effective manner.

  • You can also annotate documents, highlight text and save selected passages of a document to a work folder. You will be notified automatically if folder documents have changed. For instance, if you want to know if a Shepard’s signal has changed since you saved the case or Shepard’s report to your work folder you can just click and update—at no extra charge for in-subscription documents. Access step-by-step instructions about highlighting search terms within a case >>

Tip #3: One of Amanda’s favorite tips to share is with regard to Shepard's.
