Business & Human Rights Resource Centre: This organization monitors business conditions which effect stakeholders all over the globe. They offer independent research on companies. Se habla espanol. Fantastico! Not all of these articles are in English. Don't speak Spanish? That's okay. Plenty of articles are also in English.
CQ Researcher: This is a great library database that focuses on current issues. If you have an idea of what you wish to write about (i.e. tobacco companies, Occupy Wall Street protests, along with our libguide for Occupy Wall Street, and so on), this is a great place to start. Get data, charts, a bibliography (a wicked good list of books, newspaper and journal articles). Hint: check out the bibliography. Find some of those articles and you're set. See "Finding Articles" to learn more about this research time saver.
