Research Articles and Trade Publications

These resources are used to search for articles in business journals, business magazines, trade publications, and business news. Search them for information on fashion industry news, marketing information, consumer studies, market research, and other business aspects of fashion merchandising.

If you want to search for scholarly journals, look for a checkbox that says "Peer Reviewed" or "Scholarly journals" only.

If you only want to see items with the article available directly from that database, look for checkboxes that say "Full-Text."

If you need recent materials, look for a box or slider to narrow down the date.
