Think Tank Publications

What is a

Think Tank?
Earlier in the year, Foreign Policy published an article entitled "The Think Tank Index" by James McGann in (Jan-Feb 2009).

This was a project of the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at the University of Pennsylvania. In this project, hundreds of experts from around the world ranked the best think tanks in various ways.

Many of these think tanks put their research materials on the web for free, so AUR Library has created a page that will search these materials as simply as possible. Follow the directions on the page. You can get to this page from the Wiki page on Think Tanks, or by using the Extended Search option, and selecting Government & Policy Documents --> Selected Think Tanks.

We will continue "tweaking" the query in Google to get better results. Give it a try and let us know how it works.
