EBSCO Information Services recently released Communication Source as a resource for communication research. Communication Source was developed from a merger of EBSCO databases, Communication and  Mass Media Complete and Communication Abstracts (formerly published by SAGE). The Digital Journal brought this news to our attention in their article, “EBSCO Information Services Releases Communication Source™ – the Most  Comprehensive Resource for Communication Research Available.”

Communication Source includes coverage of more than 1,000 core titles and features full text for more than 600 active periodicals, including 150 full-text titles not found in other EBSCO academic databases.

With any database project, it is important to remember the value of a solid taxonomy. How the content is classified impacts the findability of your data. Professionals should look for an experienced builder of solid standards-based taxonomies to associate content for appropriate machine-assisted indexing. Access Innovations can provide solutions that are ANSI compliant.
