Periodicals are an excellent source for industry statistics as well as information on your competitors. Trade publications - newspapers and magazines that focus on issues affecting a particular industry - often run articles that focus on recent research reports, or they publish their own proprietary market data. You can also find news developments about your competitors and their products. The Wall Street Journal and other business publications can give you information on business trends and other economic issues that may impact your business. Local newspapers and business journals can provide you with a window into your local scene.
