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).

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
