Online Archive Simplifies Access to Policy Research
August 19, 2008 | From the field | Policy Research

With support from MacArthur, the Center for Governmental Studies has launched PolicyArchive, the nation’s first free comprehensive, online archive of public policy research. The goal is to strengthen public policy by providing policymakers and others with quick access to research on various topics. The archive currently contains over 12,000 policy documents from over 220 think tanks and other research organizations. Publishers can also upload their own research. The project is a partnership between Indiana University-Purdue University library systems. A special collection dedicated to MacArthur-funded research will be created over the next year.
