I often refer to Business Source Complete as the “Google of Business Information”. Regardless of your topic, Business Source Complete is bound to have something for you. It’s great for company and industry news, academic journals, trade publications, and much more.
A wonderful resource when looking for articles on a company, topic, industry, and more. The database provides full-text access to over 9,000 publications. Factiva is a very powerful database, although it can be admittedly complex to use.
