CQ Researcher: Pros & Cons of Hot Topics of the Day

Are you exploring a current policy problem? Do you need to research a controversial issue? Do you just want to understand the pros and cons of an important  topic of the day?  Whether immigration, gun control, climate change, the status of Puerto Rico, privacy rights, or any other public hot topic, CQ Researcher is a great starting point.

CQ Researcher provides in-depth coverage of the most important issues of the day.  Reports are written by experienced journalists, are footnoted and professionally fact-checked. Full-length articles include an overview, historical background, chronology, pro/con feature, plus resources for additional research. Graphics, photos and short “sidebar” features round out the reports. Shorter “Hot Topics” articles provide a solid introduction to subjects most in demand by students.
