NMSU Grants Library is happy to announce the inclusion of CQ Researcher Online database !!
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 in print and online 44 times a year by CQ Press, an imprint of SAGE Publications.
Each single-themed, 12,000-word report is researched and written by a seasoned journalist. CQ Researcher provides researchers with an introductory overview, which includes three pro-con debates; a background and chronology on the topic; an assessment of the current situation; tables and maps; a pro/con debate by representatives of opposing positions; and bibliographies of key sources.
CQ Researcher received the American Bar Association's 2002 Silver Gavel Award for a nine-part series on liberty and justice issues, as well as the prestigious Sigma Delta Chi Award for Journalism Excellence in 1999 for a 10-part series on health care.
CQ Researcher Online offers access to CQ Researcher reports dating back ten years. PDF files are available for reports from January 1996; color PDFs are available for reports published after January 2001.
