Tired of flipping through hundreds of books looking for information? Debatabase, by the International Debate Education Assocation (IDEA), is one site that will take many hours out of your research.
This service has a wide variety of topics, all organized by theme, making it easy to find pretty much any major subject. Each of these have individual pages, which present a brief summary of the two sides as well as a concise list of pros and cons accompanied by evidence. But these aren't just compiled by anybody; a majority of the topics have renowned editors such as university professors and debate champions.
Even if you are not satisfied with the information provided, at the end, a list of beneficial sites and books are listed for you to make use of. And if you want, you can make your own points in the discussion section as well.
Overall, this web page is well-designed and very handy for any level of report.
