Organizations & Agencies

Organizations, institutes, and think tanks are excellent sources for the latest research reports, names of known scholars and experts in the field, and other types of material you may not easily find in academic journals.  One way to find organizational research on the Internet is to implement the following Google search:

Key words or phrases

Site:org   (or site:edu)


Example:  “Hispanic women” executives site:org filetype:pdf 

This search will limit results to organizational (or educational) web sites and to PDF (Adobe Acrobat) documents.  Why does this work? You are much more likely to find published research in PDF format and the search eliminates misleading commercial and personal web sites.

Labor Unions with Public Sector Membership
