Each single-themed, 12,000 word CQ Researcher report is
researched and written by a seasoned journalist and provides an
introductory overview; background and chronology on the topic;
an assessment of the current situation; tables and maps;
pro/con statements from representatives of opposing positions;
and bibliographies of key sources.
In addition to CQ Researcher reports, which date back to 1991,
the Archive includes more than 3000 Editorial Research Reports,
published between 1923 and 1990. Archive content adds a new
historical dimension to the CQ Researcher site, extending its
coverage beyond politics and current events to the fields of
history, sociology, cultural studies, and other social sciences.
