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 can view the full reports within the database interface and take screen captures of single pages, infographics, etc. This option is available both remotely and on campus (when campuses are open) for current SFU people. Guests (non-SFU researchers) are also able to view reports, but only when logged into the computers in our library branches, which unfortunately remain closed at the moment.

(b) SFU students may request PDF delivery of specific reports from Frost & Sullivan for legitimate academic 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 database's home page.)

(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. 2021. Dedicated, ongoing funding is not

If you use it, please do send me your stories!

  • What role did it play in your research?

As always, let me know if you have any questions!
