CQ Researcher is a full-text database of 20-40 page articles examining a single "hot" topic. Articles include comments from experts, charts, graphs and sidebar articles, plus a pro-con feature, a chronology, lengthy bibliographies, and more. It is an excellent place to begin research. Some general tips:
Keep your searches simple, using just one or two keywords.
You can also use the Advanced Search page to limit in other ways, such as by date or general topic.
Pay attention to the date of the articles--if the articles are too old, they may not be useful.
You can use CQ Researcher to help you find topics for research or writing. Use the Browse functions or explore links on the homepage for ideas about thought-provoking, debatable topics.
