J.P. Morgan has partnered with ProQuest, a cloud-based data management technology provider in Ann Arbor, Mich., to make J.P. Morgan's company and economic research data available to business students, academics and other researchers.
The newly created J.P. Morgan Research database "contains intelligence and insight on more than 3,000 corporations worldwide and all major economies," according to a company release. The research includes coverage of trends, forecasts and macro analysis of companies and global economies. It brings together approximately 1,500 reports published each month by J.P. Morgan with "a selection of archived items."
J.P. Morgan's research data from 2011 onward will be available and delivered through the ProQuest platform with only a seven-day embargo, the company said.
Data is essential "for teaching and learning real-world business research skills and developing analytical capabilities," said Jeff Wilensky, vice-president of information solutions at ProQuest. ProQuest's teamwork with J.P. Morgan "allows MBA students, business faculty and other researchers to reliably analyze companies and industries quickly, easily."
ProQuest's data collection so far consists of 90,000 sources that encompass six billion digital pages of content "spanning six centuries," including 20 million digitized pages and three centuries of the world's newspapers, and more than 450,000 academic ebooks.
