        Special note about access to downloadable copies of reports

        Frost & Sullivan has some unusual rules for access to downloadable PDFs of their reports: 

        (a) All SFU researchers (including guests in our library branches) can view the full reports within the database interface and take screen captures of single pages, infographics, etc.

        (b) SFU students may request PDF delivery of specific reports from Frost & Sullivan for legitimate use. Please contact Ajo Joseph of F&S from a valid SFU email account with your request. (The address of Ajo Joseph is also listed on the home page within the database.)

        (c) Continuing SFU faculty and staff can either use option (b) above to download single reports or email the same people listed above to request a separate database access method that allows full access to all PDFs from within the interface.

        Share your stories: Our current Frost & Sullivan subscription expires in Aug. 2020. Dedicated, ongoing funding is notline drawing of a young man celebrating with his arms in the air yet available for this resource, so a renewal of the subscription is not guaranteed.

        If you use it and find it valuable, please do send me your stories! What role did it play in your research?  What is the focus of your research? What department are you in?  Did F&S make your day?
