Deduplication of News Stories
Deduplicate News Search Results in LexisNexis Academic
Sometimes the same news story is repeated, with little or no difference, in multiple newspapers or the news aggregator sources. The Deduplicate feature allows you to remove these duplicates from your result set.
How It Works
When you run an Easy/News search or use one of the special News search forms available on the navigation menu, your results will include the deduplication tool, pictured below. By default, deduplication is set to "off" so that all search results will be displayed. Changing this setting will remove duplicate stories from your result set.
