CQ Press explores a single "hot" issue in the news in depth each week. Topics range from social and teen issues to environment, health, education and science and technology. There are 44 reports produced each year including four expanded reports.

Every 12,000-word report is written by an experienced journalist and features comments from experts, lawmakers and citizens on all sides of every issue. Numerous charts, graphs and sidebar articles -- plus a pro-con feature, a chronology, lengthy bibliographies and a list of contacts -- round out each report.

The CQ Researcher Web site offers online access to issues dating back to October 25, 1991.

PDF files are available for full issues dating back to January 1996. For issues published since January 2001, PDF files are in color.
