It provides access to over 6,000 credible individual full-text news, legal, and business publications including:

  • over 350 newspapers from around the world in English and major European languages including the New York Times and the Times of London, magazines, newsletters, newswires, and transcripts.
  • Canadian, US, and International case law, statutes, regulations, law reviews and journals and patents.
  • additional Canadian legal materials including administrative board and tribunal decisions, commentary, citators and indexes.
  • business and financial news and trade publications, company profiles and financials.

The Company Dossier service enables users to generate customized reports on 35 million US and International companies derived from a cross-section of relevant sources. Citations may be exported directly to RefWorks accounts.
