"From the Editor...I didn't know that LexisNexis had made it possible to Shepardize@ headnotes on Lexis until Susan Mart approached us with her idea for an article. She felt it would be interesting to Shepardize a case and then use KeyCite@ to cite check the same case, limiting her search results by headnotes. In her article, Susan describes how West Group and LexisNexis create headnotes. Then she describes the structure of her research project and shows you that in the "Brave New World" of cite checking, it is best to be thorough. She also provides a chart that shows the results of her unique research project. - Donna Tuke Heroy, Editor/Publisher"
