Gale Expands Business Content with Business Monitor, Economist Agreements

Gale Group has announced that Business Monitor International and Economist Intelligence Unit, two leading business, economic, and country intelligence publishers, have signed agreements to have their content available through Gale Group's InfoTrac databases and online Resource Centers. The agreements will increase the global coverage in Gale's Business & Company Resource Center, an online research product.

Business Monitor International coverage is provided via Gale's Daily Alerts, Trade Alerts, Financial Weekly Reports, and Weekly Economic Alerts, as well as Regional Monthly Reports & Quarterly Country Forecast Reports for 111 countries. Among the featured countries are Brazil, Honduras, Trinidad, Columbia, Chile, Singapore, China, Pakistan, and Thailand.

Economist Intelligence Unit publishes Annual Country Profiles & Daily News via the publisher's newest alert service, ViewsWire. Coverage is provided for 76 countries and regions, including Afghanistan, Europe, Tajikistan, West Bank, and Gaza.

Expanding access to periodical data through licensing agreements and linking technology has been an important product-development strategy for Gale. These new licensing agreements add 90 magazines, newsletters, and other publications to the more than 7,000 periodicals available through Gale products. More than 1,100 have been added since January 2000.

According to the company, Gale is noted for its commanding distribution network in libraries throughout the world. Library patrons and other information consumers search and review newspapers and magazines through Gale's InfoTrac, which is best known for its technological innovation, friendly interface, and precise searching.
