"About this document" provides quick-and-easy access to popular components of the QuickCITE record. Links to the History of Case, Citing Cases and Commentary Referring to this Case now make it easy to navigate through QuickCITE records, and are of particular importance when viewing long QuickCITE records composed of many parts. This feature is part of the series of enhancements designed to augment LexisNexis Canada's QuickCITE service.

A new QuickCITE feature has been added to the results list for Cases which denotes the number of times a decision has been judicially considered. Number of Citing Cases provides a quick glimpse into the QuickCITE record and allows the research to quickly glean how significant a decision is based strictly on the number of times it has been cited. This feature is part of the series of enhancements designed to augment LexisNexis Canada's QuickCITE service.

Some of the sources available on Lexis Advance® Quicklaw® include a table of contents. Now navigating through the table of contents for these sources has been simplified with the addition of a new Expand All/Collapse All feature.
To use this new feature:
While viewing the table of contents for a particular source simply hover over the plus sign to the left of a title to view the number of levels available for expansion under that section. Then select how many levels into the title you would like to expand to view the headings (or additional titles) under that section.
In late 2018 work continued on our OneCase Redesign Project. Now the citation listed in blue in the results list matches the case selected for the Search Term Map.
OneCase is a unique feature offered on Lexis Advance® Quicklaw®. With OneCase, multiple versions of a case resulting from parallel citations, and all case-summaries associated with a specific decision, are rolled-up into a single hit on the search result page. OneCase offers an advantage by searching all versions of a case and its associated summaries.
Previously the citation for a case appearing beside a case title may have differed from the case referenced in the Search Term Map. Work was done in late 2018 to ensure that there is cohesiveness between the citation appearing beside the case name in the results list and the "best match" excerpt cited in the Search Term Map. This improves the overall research experience by ensuring the researcher is consistently directed to the case which "best matches" the search terms entered.
