Public Policy focus rather than science?

This guide is primarily for science-based topics.

For policy topics, try using the research guide on Public Policy & Administration, and/or talk to the librarian for that discipline.

See also Congressional Research Service reports for the U.S.Congress. They summarize key issues and background information for busy legislators - and students!
