The definition of a case study varies widely between periodicals. Magazines and trade publications often carry short articles outlining how an organization or individual handled a business or management problem. Journal articles often provide more in-depth studies of an organizational issue by using the case method as a research tool.
A keyword search in an article database such as Business Source Complete or ABI/Inform may retrieve case studies from current trade or business magazines or journals. In the boxes below are some sample searches.
If your search does not find relevant articles when the search includes the phrase case studies, leave it out.
Caveat: Records (but not the full-text) of the Harvard Business School Cases are covered in the Business Source Complete database. These commercial cases must be purchased from the publisher, they are not available via Interlibrary Loan.
