The Wall Street Journal Professional Edition Launches

The Wall Street Journal just got a little more professional, launching The Wall Street Journal Professional Edition Thursday, which adds global content from Dow Jones Factiva and Dow Jones Newswires.

The Wall Street Journal Professional Edition also offers users the ability to search more than 17,000 global business and news sources, many of which are not usually available free-of-charge. Users can also customize news alerts and company profiles for the industries and topics that are most relevant to them.

The service costs $49 per month, and existing subscribers will receive a discounted rate.

Dow Jones & Co. editor in chief and The Wall Street Journal managing editor Robert Thomson said:

Never before have business leaders and professionals had access to one sophisticated, customized service that directly addresses their individual needs. The Wall Street Journal Professional Edition combines the full power of our unmatched global reporting with a unique database. Users will be able to access this service without being tethered to a clunky terminal.

And Dow Jones & Co. president Todd Larsen added:

The Wall Street Journal Professional Edition leverages two of our leading products to create an innovative tool to serve professionals across multiple industries — a service Dow Jones is uniquely positioned to provide. The competitive advantage offered by being able to quickly and thoroughly access and analyze information from literally thousands of resources is an exciting prospect for our business and for our users.
