Many of your favorite research tasks— those tasks you rely on to get you to information you need—can be completed at Lexis Advance® in a couple of steps. Try them out. Get comfortable. They’re so simple you’ll memorize them quickly.

Copy cites and texts for your work

Add citations: Including parallel cites and links to the full-text document. Just select the Copy Citation link at the top of the full-text document.

Copy text and citation: Highlight the text you need. An option box displays. Select Copy. For citation and copy attribution, you can select from a variety of style formats. You can also choose to include parallel cites and a link to the document.

Print, email, download and save to Folders.

Deliver a single document as you view the full text of that document. Deliver one or more documents from the results list—even across content categories. Select the checkbox next to each document you wish to deliver.

Then look for the delivery icons at the top of the screen:

Print: Options let you format (fonts, search terms in bold, etc.), show headnotes in cases, etc. Save steps and bypass options screens too. Just select Use default settings.

Email: Options let you format (.PDF, .Docx, .WP), add recipient addresses, subject and message. Also send to LexisNexis® CaseMap® case analysis software or compress (zip) files.

Download: Options let you download as .Docx, .WP or .PDF, send to CaseMap® or download the results list. Even send as multiple, zipped files. Save steps and bypass options screens too. Just select Use default settings.

Save to a Folder: Options help you select a folder, save the document(s) or results list(s) and add notes to preface the document(s)
