​CQ Researcher is the first place to go for the in-depth, balanced explorations of the most pressing issues in the news. CQ Researcher provides award winning in-depth coverage of the most important issues of the day. Reports are written by experienced journalists, 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.

Each report:

  • Engages readers with original reporting by experienced journalists
  • Is professionally fact-checked
  • Poses and addresses three issues/questions and includes a pro/con debate
  • Guides students to logical sources for the next step in their research
  • Tracks the chronology of topics
  • Reports cover hot topics including:
    • Health
    • International Affairs
    • Education
    • Public Policy
    • Environment
    • Technology
    • U.S. Economy
