Encyclopedias contain overviews of topics, which can include

  • a historical context of your topic
  • names of key researchers
  • theories and key concepts
  • chronologies
  • lists of articles and books about a topic

Several online encyclopedias cover business and management topics.

Use Scholarly Journals, Magazines & Newspapers

Choose Your Sources

In databases look for the filters on the left of your results page. You can limit your results by choosing the type of source you want to use. You can sort your results by relevance or by date.
