The Northeastern University Library is currently offering trial access to these resources:
Policy Commons is a large and comprehensive content-and-discovery platform and community resource for public policy. It offers more than 2.5 million reports, working papers, policy briefs, data sources, and media drawn from a directory of more than 8,000 IGOs, NGOs, think tanks, and research centers. It also includes the complete historical output of select organizations and a mix of born-digital content and items dating as far back as 1920. Over 100,000 of the documents are accessible exclusively in this resource, including material from 100 or more organizations that were influential and then ceased to exist. Continually growing, it plans to offer 5 million items within the next year. Over 100,000 of the documents are accessible exclusively in this resource, including material from 100 or more organizations that were influential and then ceased to exist. Policy Commons covers material across a wide range of disciplines—economics, history, political science, statistics, geography, international development, and area studies.
Faculty and researchers can upload and circulate new materials and share links to publications.
Users can follow and share topics of interest from a directory of over 5,000 curated topics—including real-time coverage of COVID-19, police reform, Brexit, the Paris Climate Agreement, the Sustainable Development Goals, and other central topics.
The trial will end on Feb. 28th, 2022. Please take the time to let us know your thoughts on this resource by taking this short survey.
