This database delivers over 1,800 journals, with more than 1,200 available in full-text. It covers a variety of business-related subject areas including financial, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and more.
To begin, select the "Advanced Search" option by clicking on the "Advanced Search" tab near the top of the screen.
Since ProQuest's ABI/Inform database recognizes the term SWOT analysis as a valid subject heading:
Change the drop-down menu adjacent to the top search box from "Anywhere" to "All subjects & indexing--SU"
Type "swot analysis" in the search box
Run the search.
The search results will include citations and full-text articles that have been indexed using this subject term, and which should be largely focused on the topic.
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 "All subjects & indexing--SU" to "Anywhere." 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.
