Trade publications are found in many library databases but the easiest way to search for them is to try these:

  • Business Source Complete:
    1. Log in to database with FIT user name/password
    2. Choose Advanced Search
    3. On the next screen, see Search Options> Limit your results> Publication type > Trade publications
    4. Add your search words at the top of the page and click on "Search"
  • Business Insights Essentials:
    1. Log in to database with FIT user name/password
    2. Choose Advanced Search
    3. "Enter Search Terms'' as directed
    4. Then choose Select Limiters> Content type> Trade journals
    5. Click on Search.

If you are also looking for publications that we have in the library in print (not just online), you can use our Research Guide, Periodicals by Title and Subject.

When you click on one of the subject tabs on the left, such as "Apparel Industry" you'll see a list that indicates which ones are current and which ones are classified as "trade publications". You can also search that guide using the phrase "trade publication" to see which subjects list them.
