  • Scotland's constitutional future: Responses to the consultation (UK government) (17 May 2012) - The UK government's consultation on Scotland's constitutional future said there was clear feeling that there should be a single, clear question in the referendum, reviewed by the Electoral Commission, and steps should be taken to ensure the vote itself was legal.
  • Scotland and the United Kingdom (The Royal Society of Edinburgh) (11 February 2012) -The Royal Society of Edinburgh said that while it could be argued Westminster viewed devolution as an event rather than a process, the independence debate had shown arguments over identity had a continuing salience.
  • Future Scotland: Discussions and Priorities (Scottish Council for Development and Industry) (28 May 2013) - The organisation said there was an appetite among its members for more economic information on the debate, but raised concern over the possibility of a blizzard of confusing and contradictory arguments due to a lack of agreed evidence.
  • Scotland analysis: science and research (UK government) (11 November 2013) -The UK government said Scotland, as part of the UK, has a thriving research base ranked second only to the US - a situation which could not be guaranteed under independence.
  • Imagining Scotland's Future (Church of Scotland) (26 February 2014) - The Kirk said the independence debate needs to go beyond issues like how much better off Scots will be financially.
  • Emigration and Immigration options (Options for Scotland) (March 2013) - The pro-independence think tank said a post-"Yes" Scotland must provide financial incentives to discourage young Scots from emigrating and taking their children abroad.
