If you’re feeling wonky or if you’re just looking for respected sources to cite in your next grant application, you should check out PolicyArchive.org, a new website from the Center for Governmental Studies.
PolicyArchive is an innovative, new digital archive of global, non-partisan public policy research. It makes use of the power, efficiency, and economy of modern Internet technology to collect and disseminate summaries and full texts, videos, reports, briefs, and multimedia material of think tank, university, government, and foundation-funded policy research. It offers a subject index, an internal search engine, useful abstracts, email notifications of newly added research, and will soon expand to offer information on researchers and funders, and even user-generated publication reviews. Over time, it will grow to include policy content from international and corporate organizations.
A quick perusal found a fairly small number of listings on cultural policy. The site’s brand new, however, so hopefully it will grow over time.
