All reports are searchable, so search results return all reports on the platform.  may include reports with a lock icon, meaning they are unavailable to your patrons.

Why do I see locked reports on CQ Researcher?

The new CQ Researcher search function surfaces reports published from 1920 to present. Some of these search results may include reports with a lock icon, meaning they are unavailable to your patrons. This means that the reports are outside your school's subscription range and are therefore locked.

How do I hide locked reports?

  • After performing a search, you can hide locked reports by limiting the results on the left side under the "Quick filters" section, select the "Content available to me" radio button, and click the "APPLY FILTER" button.

Is there a way to hide locked reports entirely?

  • Our technical teams are developing a way to hide unavailable content so your patrons will never see the locks, this feature will be available soon.
