Finding Articles on SWOT Analysis in Business Abstracts with Full Text

This guide is designed to help users find articles on SWOT analysis in Business Abstracts with Full Text.

Open the Business Abstracts with Full Text link below:

To begin, click on "Advanced Search" (if not already selected).

Business Abstracts with Full Text Advanced Search form ("Advanced Search" is circled)

Since EBSCOhost's Business Abstracts with Full Text database recognizes the term SWOT analysis as a valid subject heading:

  • Change the drop-down menu adjacent to the top search box from "Select a Field (optional)" to "SU Subject"

  • Type "swot analysis" in the search box

  • Run the search.

Advanced Search form: swot analysis in the search box; drop-down (circled) set to SU Subject

The search results will include citations and full-text articles that have been indexed using this subject term.

If you want to retrieve a larger number of items related to SWOT analysis, but which may not be as narrowly focused as the items retrieved using the search above, re-run the search by entering the term "swot analysis" in the search box after changing the drop-down menu option from "SU Subject" to "TX All Text Fields." Since the topic is entered as a keyword phrase, and not as a subject, be sure to include quotation marks around the phrase "swot analysis" in the search box.

Although the number of items retrieved when using this latter approach will increase, some of the items in this larger set may not be as useful as those found in the subject search.
