Finding HBR Articles

Finding Harvard Business Review (HBR) articles can be a little tricky, because HBR does not make all of their content available to us through the library. However, with just a few strategic searching strategies, you can easily search for HBR articles specific to your research question.

Business Source Complete

When making your search in Business Source Complete, use one bar to type "Harvard Business Review" (the quotation marks are important!). In the drop-down, select "SO Publication Name." Make sure your next search term has "AND" in front of the bar--this means that you will only retrieve articles published in HBR that also have your keyword(s).

The Catalog
