RETRIEVING ALL PARTS OF THE SAME ARTICLE

After retrieving articles in LEXIS-NEXIS, you may discover that some hits are in fact parts of long articles that have been divided into smaller files. To better understand this phenomenom, take a look at the following example. You are trying to find research on access to information technology and enter the search phrase: "information technology AND access" in a search limited to the header and lead paragraph of articles from the Contemporary Women's Issues database.




Your search returns fifteen potential articles...


... but on closer examination you realize that fourteen of them are all part of one large work, a 20-part analytical study of gender, information technology and developing countries. Since this study promises a wealth of information on your search topic, it would be very useful to locate all of the various sections.
