Featured Resource: PolicyFile


Peer-reviewed articles are a very important source of research for social workers, but did you know that there is a whole world of research beyond these types of articles. Governments, think tanks, and non-profit agencies informally publish all kinds of research papers & data that can help supplement your research. You can search through PolicyFile to help you locate these types of reports.  You can find a link to PolicyFile here: http://libguides.bc.edu/c.php?g=44098&p=279994
