Online access to magazines – The Economist and others

The Faculty of Economics and Administration has access to various newspapers and magazines through the ProQuest database.

For example, the electronic edition of The Economist magazine is available.

The Economist is an internationally respected source of news, analysis and commentary that focuses on the global economy, politics, science, technology and culture. Its content is highly renowned for its depth, objectivity and thorough approach to reporting. The Economist is known for its ability to present complex concepts in an accessible and understandable way, even for readers who are not experts in the field.

The Economist's high standard of reporting is also due to the fact that it often offers unique and provocative perspectives on world events that often transcend conventional narratives. The Economist's editors and journalists are praised for their ability to maintain a high level of critical thinking and independence, making them one of the most respected news sources in the world.

Both the latest issues from the current month and issues from previous years are available in ProQuest. The magazine is divided into individual articles that can be browsed separatelly.

The articles can be viewed either in full text directly on the page or in full text in PDF format, which fully corresponds to the physical form of the magazine. It is also possible to search the content and create an automatic citation of the article.
