London – February 2021
Law firms, legal practitioners and students around the world can now enhance their research with new collections of over 70 journals and books on vLex. Covering law in both North America and Europe, these new collections are provided by Wiley, one of the world’s leading publishers of high-quality books and journals, and offers a notable resource which spans a range of practice areas.
Accessing these collections on vLex services will enable researchers to conduct comprehensive research on a single platform, as they will have the unique benefit of the world’s largest collection of legal information, including over 120 million documents from more than 130 jurisdictions.
Practice areas covered by the collections include arbitration, business, finance, estates and trusts, corporate governance, the environment, labour, intellectual property and more.
The new collections available from vLex contains the full archive of law journals, which will receive regular quarterly updates, as well as a range of books which will be updated when new editions are published.
Researchers and legal practitioners can take advantage of vLex’s powerful search features and intuitive analysis tools when accessing these new collections, to enhance the efficiency of their research in ways that are not possible on other services.
vLex services also include Vincent, a virtual legal assistant, which conducts human-like searching at machine speed using artificial intelligence to identify important related material that traditional searching can miss. Vincent can be used with these new collections to discover important documents, including case law and legislation, that are related to a specific journal article or book.
Masoud Gerami, Managing Director of vLex Global Markets, shared his views on the importance of these collections:
“As one of the largest and most authoritative publishers of online journals and books, Wiley is a proven leader in producing research knowledge and content. We are excited to partner with them to provide this new and wide-ranging collection of journals and books. Access to these collections will enable academics and law practitioners to enhance their research and expand their knowledge-base in a variety of different practice areas.”
Duncan Campbell, Senior Director, Global Sales Partnerships for Wiley discussed the advantages that making these collections available through vLex brings:
“Partnering with vLex allows us to expand our content reach among legal professionals, providing academic context alongside case law and legislation resources. Wiley continues to drive research impact for our authors and publishing partners by ensuring relevant content is accessible and discoverable among practitioners.”
