Industry Information

Business Source Complete is another of our Top Ten databases. It provides access to full text articles from more than 3,000 scholarly business journals covering all areas of business and economics. Special industry reports are also available as well as the useful SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats).

Some search tips to get relevant articles more quickly.

  • Use the "Select a field" pull down to narrow in on a company.
    • For example -- searching "e ink" with the "CO Company Entity" field finds over 100 articles about that specific company. Searching without that option returns some interesting articles on social networks as well as other topics not directly associated with the company of interest.
  • Use the "Source Types" to retrieve certain types of reports. Options include:
    • Product Reviews
    • Market Research Reports
    • Industry Profiles
    • SWOT Analysis
    • Country Reports
  • The "Subject Terms" listed in the detailed record (which also has an abstract and the NAICS/Industry Codes) can be used to help get more relevant answers by either broadening the search or narrowing the search.
    • Click on the "Subject Term" in the detailed record to a new broader search. The modify the search as necessary.
    • Click on the subject term in the left column to add it to the current search. This will shrink the number of retrieved articles citations by making the search more specific.
