Hi Melissa,

We have access to Nexis Uni but have not yet migrated to it, continuing to
direct users to the LexisNexis Academic platform. There seem to be a number
of issues with the Nexis Uni platform that have made us reluctant to
migrate. I just saw a message today on the Summon listserv indicating
OpenURL linking for Nexis Uni is currently only supported at the journal
title level not at the article level, which reinforced our reluctance to
migrate. If it were up to me, I'd hold off migration as long as possible.
