Think Tanks

"A think tank is an organization devoted to research, whether in the sciences or related to public policy. Policy think tanks, often called policy institutes, are often but not always partisan in their design: for instance, the Cato Institute, Heritage Foundation, and Center for American Progress are American policy institutes promoting libertarianism, conservatism, and progressivism, respectively."1

Think tanks are great resources for getting access to current research. Their publications may include books and journals, but also working papers, policy briefs, and reports.

The database CIAO gives access to a great number of publications produced by internationally recognized think tanks, and it is also a gateway to access the institutions websites.
