To help entice those who haven't yet explored GFDatabase, I thought I'd highlight the value of the long-long-long-range perspective that it provides...

Just a quick note to let you know that our special, short-term access to the Films on Demand: Master Academic Collection has been extended for another year. You can continue relying on FoD's thousands of streaming videos remaining available for integration into your remote classes throughout 2021.
See my initial post from May 2020 about Films on Demand for its full description, as well as...
I'm very pleased to announce that we've renewed our subscription to the Frost & Sullivan database for another year.
For those who are new to it, F&S is our main source for market research focused on emerging technology products, markets, and strategies.
To give you a sense of the type of content you'll find in F&S, consider these recent additions to the collection of over 50,000 reports, grouped by industry...
I'm very pleased to announce that SFU researchers have access to the Thomson Reuters DealScan datatset via WRDS for one year (to March 31, 2021)!
DealScan provides data on deals in the global commercial loan market, with detailed coverage of loan terms & conditions back to 1988, and selected coverage to 1981.
Frequent readers of the BUEC Buzz -- and most students in the classes I visit -- will know that I consider the use of good news sources to be imperative for business research.
You really can't deal with strategies, marketing plans, investments, etc. without being on top of all that is changing in our world... and that means exploring beyond the curated-for-clicks content of most social media.
I am very pleased to announce that SFU researchers -- including alumni! -- now have access to Data Planet: a huge collection of data from more than 80 providers.
Our IBISWorld database received a much needed refresh earlier this year.
The content hasn't really changed -- it's still a great collection of over 2100 regularly updated industry reports -- but browsing & searching to find those reports is now a smoother, more efficient process. If you haven't used IBISWorld lately, explore and let me know what you think!
Heads-up that our subscriptions to both BoardEx and RepRisk will expire at the end of this month. These datasets were both paid for through one-time faculty research grant funding, so there is very little chance of an extension to either subscription.
For those who haven't used Vividata yet: it's an invaluable source of information on Canadians’ opinions, demographics, and activities, as well as their product, service, and media purchases, with brand-level data in many cases.
SFU researchers now have trial access to Data Planet -- a very broad collection of datasets from both public and private sources on topics relevant to economics and business (and beyond). We'd really appreciate it if you could check it out and share your opinions.
