A note on BMI Research reports:
Recently we increased coverage of BMI Research reports from 900 reports to their entire portfolio of 2000. Rather than showing all 2000 on the title list and in products, we have simplified how they are displayed by grouping them under 4 main report titles; BMI Country Industry Reports, BMI Industry Insight Reports, BMI Risk Reports, and Corporate Financing Week.
Please be aware that because of this the total number of active full text BMI titles on ProQuest title lists will be reduced from over 900 titles to 4, even though the former reports - along with the over 1000 new ones – are all still available to users under one of the four tiles mentioned above. You can see these BMI reports on the ‘migrated tab’ of the spreadsheet.
