Company Research

Searching for company information in journals, magazines, and news sources

You can often find detailed and timely information about companies in academic journals, professional and trade magazines, and newspapers. These sources can be useful if you are having difficulty locating information on a private company, or if you want to supplement the information you've found in the core databases.

For a list of the key databases to search for articles and news, see the Articles and News guide.


Tip: Use the advanced search interface on a database and to search for the company name in the company entity or company/organization field.

Databases will usually identify the companies that are mentioned in an article, so searching this field directly will return more relevant results. For example, a basic search for "apple" will return all the articles that contain the word "apple", while searching for "apple" in the company entity or company/organization field will only return articles on companies with the word "apple" in their name.
