Public Policy focus rather than science?

If your topic is more about policy than science, try using the research guide (like this one) on Public Policy & Administration.

Another rich source of information are reports written by the Congressional Research Service for the U.S.Congress. These reports summarize key issues and background information for busy legislators - and students!

Quick List of Databases for Environmental Conservation

Use databases to find articles on your topic. These are good for Environmental Conservation in general. Your specific topic may call for a different database. Talk to me if you need any help.
