Accessing publishing industry reports

  • Passport GMID has a selection of Industry overviews such as “Publishing of Books in Canada: ISIC 2211” (2013)
  • Business Source Complete contain reports as well as full-text article. Sample report: “MarketLine Industry Profile: Books in Canada” (2014)
  • MINT Global contains thousands of industry and company reports.  Select “Search industry research” to search the Industry: publishing.  Sample profile: “Publishing in Canada” (2014)
