CQ Researcher: Search Tips

Important Search Tips

  1. Browse reports by topic to get a general sense of the reports CQ Researcher has published. Use the Issue Tracker to follow CQ Researcher's coverage of a specific topic over time.
  2. Consult the Bibliography, Next Step, and Contacts sections of a report to find books, articles, websites, and reports about the topic. This can be a great way to start gathering sources for a bibliography or works cited list.
  3. Written by experts, the Pro/Con section of a CQ Researcher report highlights two opposing viewpoints of a current debate regarding one aspect of the issue at hand. This section is especially helpful for students writing persuasive speeches or participating in debates.
  4. Always look for the most recent report on your topic. CQ Researcher publishes reports on the same topic with different titles over the years, and you want to select the most current report to make sure you're reading the most up-to-date information on the topic.
