Resource of the Week: Business Source Premier

Owned by EBSCO, Business Source Premier is an academic research database dedicated to business information. The database provides full text for around 2,300 journals, including 1,100 peer-reviewed titles, as well as company and industry reports.

Searching the database is straight forward, with basic and advanced search options available. For both searches you can also open ‘Search Options’ to get a range of tools to limit your search results – such as to searching only for peer-reviewed publications, full text and/or to search only specific types of publications, including journals, trade publications, industry reports and more.

As with most databases, there is an option to create a free account and save your search history. You can then create alerts so that you’re emailed periodically about new publications that have been added that match your search criteria. You can save or export individual results directly to EndNote, or add them to your folder to save them all at once.

Access the site through the Database A-Z List.

Did you know: Business Source Premier also has a thesaurus to help you expand your vocabulary and extend your search strategies.
