Dig into news archives for deep insights
In an article on the importance of news archives, the Columbia Journalism Review notes, “Our records are the raw material of history; the shelter of our memories for the future.” While journalists have a powerful reason to protect the work of the past, they aren’t the only people who can benefit from using newspaper archives to fill in gaps in research.
Whether you’re conducting background research on a breaking news story or looking for trends over time to fuel your strategic planning, you need more than a 30- or 90-day view of the news. Nexis® can help you bridge information gaps with deep news archives from trusted sources.
Use newspaper archives to meet journalistic standards
With the focus on fake news, journalists need to deliver credible, well-researched content to overcome audience scepticism; Nexis makes this possible. Our extensive collection of sources makes it easier for journalists or researchers to conduct appropriate due diligence to verify questionable stories, including gaining a historical view that could identify the ultimate source of fake news or evidence that a story has been misreported. In addition, if publishers print a correction or retraction to an article already in the Nexis archive, we update the archive accordingly.
