Publications

The Shorenstein Center publishes reports and papers written by fellows, affiliated researchers, and faculty that examine themes associated with our core research initiatives. Papers by former fellows have added significantly to the body of research on the intersections of media, politics, and public policy.

The Shorenstein Center has had more than 300 Fellows since 1986, and nearly all of the papers they wrote at the Center can be found in our Research Archives.

For information about our current research projects, which are large-scale research endeavors lead by resident scholars and faculty at the Center, visit the Programs section of our website. You can also learn about our fellowships and faculty to learn more about the independent research happening at the Center.
