This month we’re featuring Business Source Complete, as our database of the month. It’s a key database for students in the School of Management because it covers a broad range of subject areas, related to business and economics.
As part of the comprehensive coverage offered by this database, indexing and abstracts for the most important scholarly business journals back as far as 1886 are included. In addition, searchable cited references are provided for more than 1,300 journals.
Business Source Complete includes the following:
- Academic journal articles
- Trade publications
- Market research reports
- Company information
- Industry profiles
- Country profiles
You can access Business Source Complete via iFind or the Management library guide. The library guide also provides advice on finding different types of information and guides to using our databases including Business Source Complete.
