Trade Publications

Another resource both for industry research and career research are trade publications. These are written for—and often by—people working in whatever industry the magazine or journal covers.

Characteristics of trade publications include:

*  focus is usually on news and trends but can include research

*  articles are usually short and may not have authors or their affiliations listed

*  filled with advertisements aimed at professionals in the field

 *  often expensive

 *  NOT peer-reviewed

You can find trade publications in the databases listed below. You can narrow down results of your searches by using the filter for Trade publications to find just articles from these type of journals.
