Canadian Newsstand database at SFU

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: Hello, I wanted to comment on the Canadian Newsstand database at SFU. This resource unfortunately is not accurate reflecting Canadian news coverage. We did a comparison search with the Canadian Newsstand Complete database, accessible at UBC versus the one at SFU. We found over 2 times the amount of article on our topic area. This is significant if people are trying to do media related research that is national in scope.
