Multi-Year Agreement Extends ProQuest Content in Dow Jones Factiva®

ProQuest and Dow Jones are extending their longtime information provider agreement, which makes key ProQuest licensed content available globally in Dow Jones Factiva®, the award-winning business information service.

Dow Jones provides essential business news and information together with the content delivery tools and services that enable researchers to make better decisions faster.  Dow Jones Factiva's collection of more than 14,000 authoritative sources includes the exclusive combination of The Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones and Reuters newswires and the Associated Press, as well as Reuters Fundamentals.

"We have been part of the Dow Jones Factiva suite of offerings for more than a decade, and we are pleased to continue this partnership," said Marty Kahn, CEO of ProQuest.    "ProQuest is committed to making important information easily discoverable for researchers and helping them find that key piece of data they need.  Working with Dow Jones to integrate authoritative, full-text electronic content licensed from the world's most credible and comprehensive publishers helps to ensure that researchers can monitor and understand the latest news, market trends, and business challenges."

ProQuest and Dow Jones's two-year extension of the information provider agreement will leverage ProQuest resources within Dow Jones Factiva's suite of services.  ProQuest's ongoing relationships with primary publishers will continue to provide timely delivery of nearly 2,000 full-text titles, meeting the information needs of Dow Jones Factiva business subscribers worldwide.

 "Dow Jones is dedicated to partnering with world-class companies like ProQuest to provide the most authoritative information for integration of Dow Jones Factiva's collection of premium sources into role-based, workflow solutions," said  Richard Hanks, Chief Operating Officer, Dow Jones's Enterprise Media Group.  "Research is faster and more efficient with critical news and business information placed directly into the daily workflow.  We look forward to continuing our relationship with ProQuest to bring this benefit to Dow Jones Factiva subscribers."
