Business Communication

  • Business Source Complete (EBSCO)  
    EBSCO Business Source Complete provides full text articles and abstracts from a large selection of scholarly business journals. Topics cover every area of business including marketing, management, MIS, POM, economics, finance, accounting, and international business.
  • PsycINFO  
    PsychINFO includes articles about organizational behavior and business communication. Most of the items in PsychINFO are not full text, but you can link to articles available in other databases and in print in the library.
  • PsycARTICLES  
    Like PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES provides articles on organizational behavior and business communication, unlike PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES is full text. The difference is that it only includes articles from 70 journals published by the American Psychological Association and its publishing groups.
