Abstract

In this article the author uses an empirical analysis to determine if the rate at which law review articles are cited is affected by their inclusion in the Lexis or Westlaw databases. The study determines that articles in second-tier law reviews do experience an increase in citation once the article is published in Lexis or Westlaw. The implications of these findings on library acquisitions, legal research and the future of legal scholarship are discussed.
