CQ Researcher:

CQ Researcher is often the first source that librarians recommend when researchers are seeking original, comprehensive reporting and analysis on issues in the news. Covering 1923 - present, CQ Researcher offers thousands of single-themed full-text reports. CQ Researcher is noted for its in-depth, unbiased coverage of health, social trends, criminal justice, international affairs, education, the environment, technology, and the economy. Reports are published online 44 times a year by CQ Press, a division of Congressional Quarterly Inc.

Each 12,000-word CQ Researcher report is a unique work, investigated and written by a seasoned journalist. Reports can be read in their entirety or by section:

· Background or chronology

· Assessment of the current situation

· Tables and maps

· Pro/Con statements from representatives of opposing positions

· Bibliographies of key sources
