CQ Researcher database


The highly skilled and experienced journalists at CQ Researcher publish in-depth, heavily researched reports on current social and political topics.  Each report includes the following sections:

  • overview,
  • historical background,
  • chronology,
  • pro/con feature,
  • plus resources for additional research.   

All reports include extensive bibliographies.  This is a great resource for information on any "hot button" issue and can be particularly useful to launch a research project on a current events issue.
