In Policy File Index, professionals find information on both sides of a public policy debate. They can search and access reports from over 300 active think tanks, research organizations, and advocacy groups including the Hoover Institution, International Monetary Fund, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, RAND Corporation, and the World Bank.

It indexes, abstracts, and links directly to current research on virtually every public policy issue, with international coverage from many organizations around the world, as well as in-depth coverage of U.S. domestic policy organizations.

  • Fully searchable access to the research and analysis of the world’s leading policy-shaping organizations
  • Direct links to the full texts of policy research reports and studies available online
  • Direct links to the homepages of policy-related organizations and other relevant sites
