HighBeam Research is an online, subscription-based search engine for newspapers, magazines, academic journals, newswires, trade magazines and encyclopedias. The site has access to over 80 million articles from 6,500 publications, most of which are not available free elsewhere on the internet. Thousands of new articles are added daily, archives date back over 25 years including trade journal, newspaper articles, and peer-reviewed journals covering a wide range of subjects and industries; and there are tools for finding, saving, organizing, and sharing information as documents.

  4. Zigzig20s (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am the 297th most active Wikipedian; I'd like to cite articles on Highbeam like I cite articles on JSTOR and other resources. I've noticed that it's a great resource to access journals I can't read at the moment, and it would greatly improve my editing. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 09:14, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
