Business Source Complete (EBSCO)



Full-text article database giving access to academic business journals. Although the emphasis lays on the fields of business (management, marketing, accounting, and finance) some titles are available in other fields like psychology.

Business Source Complete offers comprehensive full-text coverage plus indexing and abstracts for the most important scholarly business journals, dating back as far as 1886. Besides journal articles, the database provides detailed company information for more than 1.1 million of the world’s largest public and private companies.

Most titles are full text available (back to 1886); some only have abstract and table of content. Some full-text titles have an embargo period, meaning there is a delay in publication through EBSCO. This delay can be between 1 and 36 months.
