Trade Journals

Trade journals, magazines, and newspapers are excellent sources for the latest business news and trends, and can sometimes be the only source for private company information.

Trade journals in particular focus on one industry and provide in-depth information on trends, new products and other topics of interest to people working in that industry.

The databases ABI/INFORM Complete, Business Abstracts with Full Text, Business Source Complete, Factiva, and ProQuest Research Library listed below all offer a search limiter for trade journals. The Business Journals from American City Business Journals are all trade publications.
