Read the most recent reports from CQ Researcher

The CQ Researcher provides reports and analyses of the issues that appear in the news.  Established in 1923 as the Editorial Research Reports, it covers the topics on social trends, international affairs, health, criminal justice, education, environment, technology and economy. Both the print and online versions of the reports are available and are published 44 times a year.

The reports are written by seasoned journalists. They contain single topics. Each is about 12,000-word long, comprising 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 the representatives of opposing positions, and bibliographies for key sources reports.

The CQ Researcher reports traced back to ten years can be retrieved from the CQ Researcher Online. The PDF files of the reports are available beginning January 1996, while the colored PDFs are accessible for the reports published after January 2001.

Enjoying the most recent reports from CQ Researcher as follows:

Cyberwarfare threat: do hackers pose a danger to national security?

Think tanks in transition: do their donors exert too much influence?

Climate change and national security: will extreme weather lead to more global conflict?

Medical breakthroughs: can regulators and ethicists keep up with advances?
