What is LexisNexis® SmartIndexing TechnologyTM?
LexisNexis® SmartIndexing TechnologyTM applies index terms to selected news, company, legislative, and NEXIS® Web Search sources. Algorithms created and monitored by a team of information professionals and subject experts look for words, phrases, names, acronyms, abbreviations, spelling variations, and nick names (e.g. International Business Machines = IBM = Big Blue) to assign appropriate index terms. A relevance score -- based on criteria such as a term's frequency, weight, and document placement -- follows each index term. Index terms and scores are inserted into the TERMS segment as well as the individual index-type segments (SUBJECT, COMPANY, PERSON, ORGANIZATION, CITY, STATE, and COUNTRY).
