Frequently Asked Editorial Questions

What information is in your printed publications that is not on your Web site?

Our publications run thousands and thousands of articles per year. We chose some of those articles for our Web site. Our Web site serves as a sample of the kind of depth and breadth of information that we offer in print. It also enhances and allows us to develop searchable databases and other features that we can only offer using Internet technology.

Most importantly, our Web site gives us a way to hear back from our valuable subscribers so we can make our publications better and better.

In addition to much more of the kind of clear and consise articles you will find here on our Web site, our printed publications have many articles that are timely and responsive to current events and ecomomic condtions. We also publish valuable stock tips from industry-leading experts.

How do I find a past article when I don't know the date of the issue or its title?

First, try the search engine built into this Web site. At the top of the home page, and on the side margin of most others, there is a place to type a word or phrase so you can search through much of our article database right now.

If that does not help you find what you are lookng for, send us an E-mail at editors@boardroom.com with your specific search request. If you send us as much information as you can, we'll do our best to find the article for you. Unfortunately, with over 40,000 articles indexed, sometimes we can't find what you are looking for, but we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Please include your name, address and your subscription number as it appears on your mailing label with any correspondence. Your subscription number is the second line of your mailing label.

How do I find out more about a particular subject?

The articles (including footnotes) have the information you need to contact the publication, source or organization by mail, e-mail and/or telephone. Our editorial department may be able to help you when other sources fail.

Our team is always working hard to produce your next issue, so it may take a while for us to get back to you with the information you need. We make every effort to reply to all reader communication within 10 days. You may contact us through this page.

How can I get personal advice on how an article you published affects my situation?

As much as we would like to share the wealth of knowledge accumulated during 40 years of publishing practical ideas from some of the great thinkers of the last 35 years, we cannot advise our subscribers personally in any way.

How can I contact your expert source for more information?

When we publish an article, we include all the contact information for our sources that we can give to our subscribers. In most cases, it is enough to send a letter to our source. Unless otherwise specified, regular mail is the best way to contact our sources.

If the source's address is not given in the article, then write to us and we will forward your letter to our expert. However, our expert sources are not required, nor expected, to give personal advice or answer specific questions for individual subscribers. Some experts will give personal advice but often on a professional fee basis.

The sources we use in our publications are the leading experts in their fields, so their time is in very high demand. Many sources cannot respond at all because of their ongoing professional commitments.
