How to do Research

Research is a process of inquiry: Asking questions, following the answers

Summaries and reports: Bias-free, often with pro / con outlines

The CQ Researcher, CREDO Reference, and Points of View databases provide summaries or reports on current controversies and big topics that can be complex and confusing. Reports from these sources can provide an overview of the issue, with data and other evidence. The CQ Researcher and Points of View have pro/con arguments and evidence. All sources listed here also provide links to websites and other sources that have already been reviewed for accuracy and credibility.
