Harvard Business Review Embargoed Articles

In spring 2013, Harvard Business Publishing announced that they place restrictions on the 500 most often cited articles in HBR. The restrictions include not being able to print or download the articles.

Because of our license agreement with Ebsco, our access to these articles appears (for now) not to be affected. In the event that the articles are not available through Ebsco, we do have both print and microfilm copies of the articles availalbe. The call number for HBR at the Library is HF5001 H261.

Faculty: To order copies of Harvard Business Publishing materials (cases, articles, etc.) for classroom use, contact Heather Dean at the ISU Bookstore (, 4-0237). She can work with you to arrange access for your students and make materials available.
