LexisNexis UK has responded to customer requests for additional journal content by expanding its licensing partnership with Oxford University Press. The deal will see the addition of eight new full-text journal titles to the industry’s most extensive and authoritative source of essential legal information online, LexisLibrary.

The deal follows comprehensive consultation LexisNexis conducted with its customers across UK law firms, the Bar and academic institutions in order to better understand their requirements. This deal forms a critical part of creating a resource that meets the needs of customers.

Simon Collin, LexisNexis UK’s director of content, said: “To further improve the way we meet our customers’ vital content needs, we have embarked on a programme to significantly upgrade our journals coverage with pre-eminent, high-value titles. Our agreement with Oxford University Press is a very exciting step towards the LexisNexis objective of providing the most authoritative, comprehensive and useful collection of journals available.”

LexisNexis already provides a large number of new Oxford University Press journals via LexisLibrary. The new additions will be available in the autumn.

Andy Redman, Oxford University Press’s editorial director, said: “We are pleased to expand our licensing arrangements with LexisNexis. By having a broad selection of our scholarly law journals in LexisLibrary, we can be confident that this content is discoverable at the point of use for researchers, scholars, and students.

“Our mission is to support excellence in research, and we put a strong emphasis on global reach and quality of content. For that reason, LexisNexis are an obvious fit for us as a licensing partner.”

The full eight journals are: The British Journal of Criminology, Oxford Journal of Law and Religion, International Journal of Transitional Justice, Journal of International Dispute Settlement, Chinese Journal of International Law, Journal of Competition Law and Economics, Human Rights Law Review, and Journal of Legal Analysis (Open Access).

Gathering speed: The lawtech start-up world you can no longer ignore

Technology

If there are any lawyers out there who are starting to relax, believing that predictions of the demise of law as we have known it in the face of technological change have been exaggerated, they should think again as 2017 begins. A growing hum of activity by the sort of bright and industrious people who have transformed the world in many other respects is being heard in legal corridors hitherto largely undisturbed by the modern world. As their ideas achieve traction, they will disrupt the profession and perhaps even displace lawyers who imagined their careers were set to last a lifetime.
