Classification Codes in ABI/INFORM

Classification codes are a way of categorizing articles in Business Scholarly & Trade (formerly ABI/INFORM). It can be useful to do a search that combines a classification code (or codes) with keywords or subject terms. You can do this most easily in the Advanced Search mode. Just look for the box for Classification Code.

Codes for HR Issues:
6000 HR Management
6100 HR Planning
6200 Training & Development
6300 Labor Relations
6400 Employee Benefits & Compensation
6500 Employee Problems

nurses AND CC(6300)
