Scholarly articles, trade publications, and news articles can be valuable sources for company and industry research.
News articles related to an industry can supplement the overviews or data found in online sources. If you were not able to find an industry report, news articles can collectively provide an overview of the industry.
Articles may also be the only way to locate information on small, private companies, or on subsidiaries of publicly-held companies. These same resources can be used to find news and research articles on virtually any topic in business or management.
