Need a current topic for a research paper? Already tried CQ Researcher? Have you already looked at our Contemporary Issues book section? How about the Issues and Controversies database? This database produced by the folks at Facts on File is another excellent source of current topic information. Along with World News Digest, these databases will keep you up to date, and give you some great paper topics! Use the “Need a Research Paper Topic?” link at the top of the page, or use the “Quick access” or “Issues in the Headlines” for great topic ideas and good information. And, of course, it’s available from home with a student login and password!
