SAGE CQ Researcher Online

Vendor: SAGE

The CQ Researcher Online provides in-depth, non-biased coverage of today’s most important issues that focus on controversial subjects.

Each report is on a single topic — more than 12,000 words in text and extensive bibliographies. The choice for librarians for almost 80 years, each weekly issue provides up-to-date information on controversial subjects, reported by CQ’s staff of experienced reporters. The CQ Researcher covers social, economic, political, and environmental issues and contains four expanded issues per year on topics such as War and Terrorism and Distance Learning. The CQ Researcher was awarded the American Bar Association’s Silver Gavel Award for fostering the American public’s understanding of the law and legal system.

Also available: the CQ Researcher Online Plus Archive contains the complete Archive of Editorial Research Reports — the venerable precursor to CQ Researcher — from 1923 to present. There are now two backfiles: 1923-Present, and 1923-1990. The Archive contains 3,000 additional reports, and a new cumulative index. It also contains powerful search and browse functions, allowing users to do a full range search or limit searches by categories and date ranges. Also included is the "Issue Tracker," which allows users to trace the evolution of issues since 1923.
