SEC filings (mid-1990s to present) are freely available from EDGAR (Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval).

- Select Advanced, then SEC Filings from a company record.
- Nexis Uni -
- Select Company Dossier from the menu to pull up SEC filings for a company.
- Mergent Online -
- Use the Filings tab from a company record.
- S&P Capital IQ (Note: only available to Wharton students. See our Business FAQ, "Where can I get access to Capital IQ?" for details.) -
- Use the left-hand menu from a company record to find SEC filings under News, Events & Filings.
- Thomson ONE (Note: this resource only works in Internet Explorer.) -
- Select Filings from the Company Views menu.
Thomson One also includes pre-EDGAR filings for some companies.
- Use Screening & Analysis tab and select Filings Search to find older materials.
- Since company names may have changed over time, you may see several variants when searching for a company.
For companies listed on the NYSE or AMEX, older filings on microfiche/microcard area available in Lippincott Library:
- U.S. Companies from 1950-1993 (Annual Reports from 1950-; 10Ks from 1968-; and Proxies from 1982-)
- Non-U.S. companies are arranged alphabetically, 1982-1990.
