Industrial economics and management
Subject guide - Industrial economics and management
Start at Summon@BTH! Here you can search simultaneously among everything available in the library catalogue, the electronic articles, books, conferences and theses available in the databases we subscribe to.
For more advanced searchers for scientific articles I suggest you use Scopus or Web of Science. The former is focused on social science and the latter on science. Since research in industrial economics often goes across scientific subjects, it is often necessary to use databases with both specific economical/social science content, such as Business source complete and engineering databases such as Inspec, and then make complementary searches in the big reference databases.
If you are searching for a specific journal, you can browse the university’s collection of printed and electronic journals using the link below. There you can also search for journals by subject.
Proceedings or conference articles can be found in several reference databases like Inspec/Compendex for engineers or in Web of Science, Scopus, Academic Search Elite etc. But you must remember that many conference articles never are indexed by the big reference databases, yet they are in many cases available in full text on the internet by resources like:
Theses and dissertations
Theses and dissertations are often very good sources for information. They are rich in references. Theses are found via the Swedish national portal Uppsök or in the European portal DART. Australian theses are found in Trove. Dissertations in nordic libraries are found in Libris. In WorldCat you find theses from all over the world. Here you also find references to books, reports etc. that are held by libraries worldwide.
Use the BTH library catalogue (= our books in the national union catalogue LIBRIS) to search for books on your subject of interest. In LIBRIS you will also find those e-books that are available at BTH. You can also search for e-books directly in our e-book databases, e.g. Safari, Morgan and Claypool Synthesis Digital Library or Dawsonera.
Search engines for scientific information on the Internet
Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic etc. are search engines which specialize in finding articles, abstracts, books and other scientific documents on the Internet. Use the library’s links to the search engines in order to get access to resources that BTH subscribes to. Click on the link GetIt@BTH to get the document.
