The Smithers Pirabase team are briefed to find the most important global business and technical developments and then summarise in easy-to-read articles of around 200 words.

You can get unmetered access to the complete Smithers Pirabase archive of more than 750,000 articles spanning over 40 years. This enables subscribers to search and retrieve all Smithers Pirabase articles, relating to a specific technology, company or market.

In many cases, the summary should be sufficient information on its own. However, Smithers Pira can provide the full text (in the original language) by e-mail or post within 24 hours of receipt of order.

Subscriptions can be arranged for any size of company. Please contact Katharine Smith on kbsmith@smithers.com OR +44(0)1939 252400 to discuss your needs.
