The Long Beach Business Journal is a publication of South Coast Publishing, Inc., incorporated in the State of California in July 1985. The Business Journal is a tabloid newspaper, published biweekly - every other Tuesday. It has served as the "voice of business" since its premiere edition in March 1987. It covers a wide range of business and community issues, with special focuses on international trade, real estate and development, healthcare, tourism, aviation and aerospace, technology, financial services, the arts, education and the environment. Additionally, the Business Journal editorial team tracks local, state and national legislation impacting business and keeps its readers informed about City Hall actions.
