Mergent: Mergent alternative

Mergent alternative Database Info Page

This page describes the S&P NetAdvantage search tool, the replacement for the Mergent database.

Mergent alternative

Standard & Poor's NetAdvantage provides financial information for public and private companies, as well as industry overviews. It contains similar information to that found in the Mergent database. It also has a more intuitive interface for students exploring the financial landscape for the first time.

While S&P NetAdvantage covers many companies and industries, it may be useful to use other search tools for different purposes:

  •  Academic Search Complete provides searching across a core collection of approximately 800 multi-disciplinary journals, and offers immediate full text articles for most of the results. Good for basic searching.
  • Business Source Complete provides deeper searching across thousands of business journals, and offers immediate full text articles for many results.
  • Regional Business News searches into business trade newspapers and news sources.
  • Scopus searches across a wide range of journal articles, and provides immediate links to the full text of many, while offering 3-day turnaround on those we need to borrow from other libraries. It also offers ranking of articles and journals by impact based upon citation patterns. You can follow a research front using this tool.
  • Value Line Investment Survey for Investment information covering equity issues, model portfolios, and economic and stock-market statistics.
  • More comprehensive searching may be provided using other related subject specific journal indexes.
