Business Source Complete

Stay on top of the latest business research. Business Source Complete is a database that gives you access to business journals, company and industry profiles, SWOT analyses, country reports, business videos, case studies and conference papers. It includes over 1,000 global Open Access journals. In some cases, articles are available through Business Source Complete before they appear in print. There's in-depth, full-text coverage of many available journals: Harvard Business Review is full-text from 1922, Fortune is from 1992, Forbes from 1990 and Rotman from 2013. 

You can save articles, share links with other library cardholders, and set alerts for new articles on a given subject. Available titles range from the mainstream (Bloomberg Business Week) to the extremely niche (Australian Journal of Emergency Management). There's something for every interest. Browse a complete list of Journals.
