Journalist’s Resource examines news topics through a research lens. We curate and summarize public policy research relevant to media practitioners, bloggers, educators, students and general readers. Our philosophy is that peer-reviewed research studies can, at the very least, help anchor journalists as they navigate difficult terrain and competing claims. Our hope is that journalists, in the course of reporting, will routinely ask this question: What does the research say?
