These databases will provide many full-text articles about all business topics,
and will be especially useful for finding current country information.
These business guides provide a comprehensive range of intelligence on operating conditions
and practices, financial opportunities, commercial laws and regulations, tax
environment and much more on over 47 countries.

other sources, including full text for more than 1,100 scholarly business publications. Coverage

more than 350 of the top scholarly journals dating as far back as 1922.
