WHY? Searching by publication is normally highly recommended, but with HBR it can be problematic. There are many different Harvard publications and putting too much information in this search field will likely keep you from finding what you need. Keep it simple! Only add keywords as needed.
Here is why things can get confusing:
Harvard Business Publishing has very strict guidelines for copyright. It is important to understand that general fair use practices do not apply to HBR.
To avoid copyright infringement:
HBR case studies and articles should not be distributed or shared. Do not create direct links or post a URL.
Do not share PDFs or print and disseminate HBR case studies or articles.
HBR case studies and articles may not be requested through Interlibrary loan.
