FINDING BUSINESS ARTICLES

Use the databases listed below to search for business articles and other types of business information. Many articles may be found full-text, while others may only be indexed. If you are unable to locate the full text of an article, search for the journal title in BrowZine Journal Search (electronic journals) or Maag Journal Finder (print & electronic journals). If Maag does not offer full-text access, use Request Forms to request the article electronically. InterLibrary Loan can locate most articles and will email your YSU email with a PDF attachment. This service usually takes a few days but is dependent upon other institutions fulfilling the request.

Click on the database titles below. When off campus, you will be required to authenticate with your last name and YSU ID# (“Y” number found on your YSU ID).

For complete list of available databases, see A-Z Research Databases.
