Deduplication of News Stories
Deduplicate News Search Results in LexisNexis Academic
LexisNexis Academic now includes a deduplication setting in the results list of news searches. This enhancement to the product allows you to take out duplicate news stories that appear in the results set through aggregators that include duplicate titles. For example, if you're searching "All News, English", which contains the New York Times and also "Global NewsWire", which contains the New York Times, you may have two duplicate articles show up in your results set. The deduplication feature will cut all of these down and provide you with a clear, concise list.
