The San Diego Business Journal is a weekly newspaper in San Diego, California covering local business news. Each week, the San Diego Business Journal examines the economic news, demographics and lifestyle profiles of San Diego, and the many ways that the San Diego economy operates.[2] An emailed daily news update is also available by free subscription.

Regular departments include Up Front, highlighting stories featuring San Diego businesses and their decision-makers; Media & Technology, focusing on changes and innovations in the businesses that serve these fields; Small Business, profiling those smaller businesses moving into the fore; and Investment and Finance, where San Diego’s many public companies are profiled and analyzed. One of the features is The List, which ranks the top businesses in any given industry. Some of the categories include Largest Private Companies, Fastest-Growing Private Companies, Highest Paid Executives, Highest Revenue Generators, Permanent Placement Services List, etc. Each of these surveys is then compiled into the San Diego Business Journal's resource – the annual Book of Lists.[2]
