Information sources and search tools for researching accounting, economics, company information, human resources management, industry information, and information about doing business in other countries.

Harvard Business Review Case Studies

Harvard Business Review case studies are not available through the Empire State College Online Library. 

They may be purchased individually at the link provided. 

The library does have access to case studies from other sources. For more information on that, go to the Case Studies tab of this guide.

Accessing Harvard Business Review articles

Harvard Business Review has required databases to turn off direct linking to its articles. That means that if you need to find a certain article in Harvard Business Review, there is no way to just click a link and go directly to it. If you want to share the article with someone else, there is no way to give them a link to it - you can only tell them how to find it themself.

Instructions for locating Harvard Business Review articles:

  1. Go to the library web site at http://www.esc.edu/library
  2. Click Article Databases
  3. Scroll down the alphabetical list and click Business Source Complete
  4. Use the search box to search for the title of your article. (For best results, put your article title in quotation marks.)
  5. Your article will appear in the search results list. Click on its title to view information about the article. 
  6. Click on the PDF Full-text icon to view the article itself.

 

You can't print Harvard Business Review articles

Harvard Business Review has required databases to disable the ability to print its articles. You also cannot copy or paste text from its articles. They can only be read online or saved as PDF and read offline, but still on the computer.

An unfortunate side effect of this is that if you need to use a screen reader, it will not work. Please contact the college's Office of Disability Service to get a copy of a Harvard Business Review article that works with a screenreader.
