Whether you're researching for business or just want to stay abreast of the latest trends in business ownership, entrepreneurship publications can enhance your knowledge and keep you informed of the latest news. There are many publications, including magazines, books, journals and newsletters available that cover business ownership. Unless you have the resources to subscribe and read them all, you really need to pick and choose the ones meet your needs.
Entrepreneurship magazines offer a variety of resources and there's a huge selection to choose from, but many are costly. The trick is to get the most information from the fewest resources, thus saving you money and keeping you informed so you don't have to read all day. When deciding which entrepreneur books, magazines and periodicals to choose, remember the following:
1. Some publications for entrepreneurs offer free trial subscriptions so you can better determine whether the publication is for you.
2. When subscribing to publications, find out what period your payment covers. Make sure you receive any back issues within the time period you pay for. Some publications may just begin subscription with the current issue.
3. If possible, subscribe through a publication's website site, rather than a magazine subscription site. You may receive additional tools and resources with your subscription.

With some publications, you have the opportunity to cancel your subscription, without payment, if you are not satisfied.
