Factiva includes news sources, trade publications, transcripts and press releases from all over the world. Articles are available in 28 different languages and can be searched using those languages.
Factiva also includes pictures from Reuters and several other services.
Factiva searches all sources by default. Follow these steps to find a specific source.
Click on All Sources underneath the search box
Enter all or part of a title. Factiva will show any matches
Click on the title you want. You can repeat the process to add additional sources.
Click on the "i" icon to see details. This will show years of coverage and when a source was updated.
Click on the purple caret symbol to insert Factiva's code for a source in the search box. You can combine this with "and" to search the title.
You can also enter codes directly if you know them, which can save time if you frequently search the same sources.
For example, rst=J searches the Wall Street Journal. Search "rst=J and tax reform" to find the latest articles in the Wall Street Journal on tax reform.
Factiva groups publications by topic, region and industry. However, there are two ways to select region. One searches for articles about a region, the other searches in publications from a region.
To limit to sources from a region, use the source selection box and select region
You can drill down to see a list of all sources from a country
Some sources in Factiva are not available in our academic account. The Chicago Tribune and LA Times are the two most prominent sources. They will still appear in source lists and allow you to select them, but any searches will give no results.
