LexisNexis® Legal & Professional (www.lexisnexis.com), a leading global provider of content and technology solutions, today announced an innovative arrangement with the Financial Times (FT). All Nexis® and LexisNexis® Publisher subscribers now have the ability to search through FT content to retrieve relevant headline extractions and the first 140 characters of the article.
The FT is renowned for its award-winning global business news, insightful opinion and expert analysis. With more than 600 journalists reporting from 50 countries worldwide, the publication offers unparalleled business coverage. The complete FT articles are fully indexed to ensure the highest levels of search recall and precision. Relevant results will display a headline and a 140 character preview. Users can then click through to read the full article online via FT.com or view a copy of the original printed article in PDF format. Up to eight articles can be viewed for free each month; more than that will require a new or existing subscription to the FT.
"This solution offers added value for customers by providing a more comprehensive search result for all users," said Caspar de Bono, Managing Director, B2B at the FT.
The development offers all Nexis and LexisNexis Publisher subscribers the opportunity to scan across a world leading aggregation of premium local, national and international news sources – now including the headlines from the FT – in just one place.
"Our mutual clients have always had the benefit of seeing full text FT articles, but this development means that FT headlines and extracts will be visible to all of our subscribers," said Paul Al-Nakaash, Head of Content at LexisNexis. "Our arrangement with the FT is a great example of our strategy in practice to provide the most comprehensive collection of authorised news sources."
This addition enhances the expanding LexisNexis portfolio of respected news content. All our licensed sources are authorised feeds from authorised publishers and can be confidently used to support decision-making for both businesses and researchers.
