Overview

ABI/INFORM is about business research…

Overview

“ABI/INFORM is an excellent general business /management resource giving access to not only scholarly journals, but also trade and professional publications too. Of all the e-journal packages we subscribe to I find ProQuest the most intuitive and user-friendly, and it is excellent in matching keywords to relevant documents.

Databases like ABI/INFORM are now indispensible and powerful online tools, giving users instant access to thousands of publications.

I would certainly recommend ABI/INFORM as an essential resource as part of a portfolio of resources, as it provides access to many of the core titles within the field… ABI/INFORM is the first online resource Bradford subscribed to, and it is well established at the school and is a popular and essential resource.”

Reshma Khan, Management Librarian, School of Management, University of Bradford

“My main area of interest is Operations Research. The archive of material on ABI/INFORM is fantastic, and I can find older articles on there that I can’t find anywhere else. Being able to work on material from the past and present concurrently saves me a great deal of time.

Searching is beautifully easy on this database, and especially important for me is that it has the most important journals in the area of Operations Research and Management Science.

ABI/INFORM is certainly one of the databases I would recommend and will continue to use myself.”

Dolores Romero-Morales, University Reader, Said Business School, Oxford

Customers agree…

  • ABI/INFORM sets the standard for:

  • Superior content

  • Quality results

  • Ease-of-use

“ABI/INFORM has a reputation for quality indexing, with over 35 searchable fields allowing a high relevance ranking for every search. The ProQuest interface is very easy to use and intuitive. Any searcher can easily navigate the database to produce meaningful results. A tutorial, search guides, and help screens are very well designed and informative. Summing up: highly recommended. All levels.”

L. Hickey, Sam Houston State University
