NAICS Codes by Description

EBSCO has aligned periodical and journal content to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).

Currently, whenever possible, periodical and journal content has been assigned to one or more 6-digit NAICS codes. At this time EBSCOhost supports searching only by 6-digit NAICS codes. This code is visible in the citation alongside the field descriptor NAICS/Description. The NAICS code is followed by a brief descriptor.

  • Not every NAICS code will be associated to an article. The very nature of periodical and journal content does not always have a match to certain government-identified industry areas.

  • EBSCO used the information found at the U.S. Census Bureau's NAICS web page to assist in creating this page.
