Nexis Uni vs. Lexis Nexis

What are the key differences between this Nexis Uni and LexisNexis Academic?

Nexis Uni is designed to address three key components requested by millennial students: personalization, collaboration and quick discovery. Nexis Uni offers many new features to address these needs, and is a better research experience overall for students.


  • IP-authenticated access with option for users to self-register for ID/PW for a more personalized research experience – Create alerts on topics or publications of interest
  • Save searches to re-run in the future, add sources to favorites and bookmark documents for later viewing
  • Customized home page to feature a curated discipline page with related content, top publications and specialized search forms

Quick Discovery:

  • Responsive design across devices with unlimited search results
  • Search across all content at once or a subset of targeted titles
  • Results filtering identifies highly relevant results based on location, publication type, subject, industry, geography or timeline
  • Predictive search function suggests likely search terms
  • Task-based search pods to help guide less-experienced students with their research tasks


  • Students can create and share folders for group research projects and study groups
  • Students can save documents in a shared workspace to reduce research overlap
  • Students can highlight portions of a document and make notes, and then save this annotated document in one of their folders and share with other students
  • In addition to these new features, all of the critical functionality of Lexis Nexis Academic will be available in Nexis Uni, but may have a slightly different presentation due to improvements. For example, users will still have the ability to do pre and post search filtering, ability to download results, deliver to the cloud, etc.

Best of all, Nexis Uni allows users to search ALL LexisNexis content in a single search and has an unlimited results set!
