Ross Summer Business Academy: Researching the business environment - News and article resources

Reference and project site focused on industry analysis and library resources

Browsing news and industry publications for regulatory, political and business environment research

  • An article search can often turn up all kinds of information on your company or industry.
  • Be creative with your keywords describing your issue or topic. Search on terms like "business model canvas", "lean startup" or "customer discovery" and use quotation marks or other database-specific commands to search by exact phrase. Be on the lookout for research articles related to your topic--look for the data section to see what resources the authors cite.
  • Articles are a great source for independent discussion of your company's involvement in social issues, and may also pick up local news sources with additional information about your company. Try searching by company name or use the fields in the databases to search by company, industry or topic.
