The best business resources for conducting business research today are Internet-based. Google "business research" and you'll find hundreds, even thousands, of web sites that offer business research. Which business research site is right for you? It depends on what you're looking for. If you're researching a public company, you can often find lots of information through the SEC's EDGAR online database, which is open to the public. You can also look for business blogs and archives of newspaper stories to help with your business research. Private companies, which are not required to give up nearly as much information, can be harder to research. You will likely have to pay a commercial provider, like Dun & Bradstreet, for specific business research about a private company.
