Data, statistics, financial information etc

The library provides access to many resources for finding data, statistics and information on markets, customers and industries as well as financial information. These include Passport, Orbis, Business retriever, Statista and more. All resources are presented in the different subject guides: . For students who are not able to collect primary data these resources can provide helpful data. Also see below under Finding news, trade journals and magazines. Please contact us for course specific database recommendations.

News, trade journals and magazines

Our subject guides also link to resources containing full text newspapers, trade journals and magazines. The database Business source complete contains many trade journals and magazines within business administration (including Harvard Business review). Use Retriever Mediearkivet for Swedish newspapers and magazines and Nexis uni for international newspapers. Please contact us for course specific database recommendations.

The library also provides access to the Financial Times historical archive (1888-2016) and the Economist historical archives (1843- with a four year delay). 

Scholarly literature

In our  different subject guides you can find links to relevant and discipline specific databases for finding scholarly literature. Lubsearch, Google scholar and Business Source Complete (business administration)/EconLit (economics and economic history) are normally good starting points for students searching scholarly literature for their theses. We also recommend Scopus where you can do citation searches (see who has cited a certain text). Please contact us for course specific database recommendations.

All databases can also be found in the database list: Databases A-Z


Library support for teachers and students
