New Study Comparing Bloomberg Law’s SmartCode to Other Annotated Statutes

Jason Zarin examines the effectiveness of similar operating features of different vendors through comparisons between Bloomberg Law’s “SmartCode” annotated statutes and other annotated statutes, specifically (but not exclusively) the United States Code Annotated and United States Code Service.  In his SSRN articleA Comparison of Case Law Results Between Bloomberg Law’s “Smart Code” Automated Annotated Statutes and Traditional Curated Annotated Codes, Jason conducts similar queries within these tools to determine the effectiveness of the newer SmartCode as compared with the more established West and LexisNexis products.  This article adds to similar studies of the past two years, including comparisons of headnotes and search algorithms across the different databases.
