Think Tanks

Thinking about Think Tanks

Think tanks can be a great resource for research on a variety of topics, but you need to be mindful that think tanks can be, and often are, advocacy oriented.

The fact that a think tank refers to itself as non-partisan just means that it has no formal connection to a political party, not that it doesn’t have an ideological orientation that may be more consistent with a given political party.


Searching More Than One Think Tank at a Time

Policy Archive is a very good source for finding materials from various think tanks, including many of the ones mentioned here.

Policy File is a subscription database we provide to Marine Corps University students with reports from various think tanks.
