The following databases are a good place to find information on the field of management


Search  only The Wall Street Journal by putting the title in the second search field in ProQuest Newspapers.

 Unlike journal articles, scholarly books:

  •   Contain less recent information
Remember: you may only need to read one chapter of a scholarly book!
