Launched in 2006, the Global Go To Think Tank Index Report is annually prepared by The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) of the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania. Since its inception in 1989, the TTCSP has focused on collecting data and conducting research on think tank trends and the role think tanks play as civil society actors in the policymaking process. The main purpose of the report is to identify and recognize centers of excellence in all the major areas of public policy research and every region of the world. The 2019 report indexes over 8500 think tanks from across the globe. The think tanks were selected and registered by TTCSP basing on a set of indices, such as several notable scientific publications, impact on public policy, and general worldwide trends, etc.
