NationMaster – World Statistics and Country Comparisons
http://www.nationmaster.com/

NationMaster is a massive central data source and a handy way to graphically compare nations. NationMaster is a vast compilation of data from such sources as the CIA World Factbook, UN, and OECD. Using their form, you can generate maps and graphs on all kinds of statistics with ease. They want to be the web’s one-stop resource for country statistics on everything from soldiers to wall plug voltages. You can also view profiles of individual countries including their maps and flags, use correlation reports and scatterplots to find relationships between variables, and refer to fully integrated encyclopedia with over one million articles.

International Journal of Healthcare Information Systems and Informatics (IJHISI)
http://www.igi-global.com/journals/details.asp?id=4835

The International Journal of Health Information Systems & Informatics (IJHISI) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed scholarly journal, which promotes (advance) research in the application of information systems and informatics to the health care arena. The mission of this journal is to act as a prime source for both academic researchers and practitioners to advance the knowledge and practice in the interdisciplinary areas of health care information technology and management research and to address the innovative concepts and critical issues in the emerging field of health information systems and informatics. As the purpose of this journal is to bring together experts in public health, health information systems, and medical informatics to establish a new paradigm for developing health information systems & informatics, topics covered will span a wide scope of applications. Issues surrounding the organization, classification, evaluation and adoption of advanced information and communication technology in:

* Healthcare
* IT security and privacy issues
* Medical informatics
* Clinical decision support design, development and implementation
* Management of emerging health care technologies

Other topics covered:

* Role of informatics specialists
* IT applications in health organizations and practices, measurements, and impact of HISI on public and social policy
* Telemedicine
* e-health and m-health
* Virtual health technologies

While it is anticipated that the majority of contributing authors will be from the IS groups interested in the applications of IS in health care, the journal will also be opened to contributions from the specialty medical and clinical fields, including clinical decision support systems, nursing expert systems, pharmaceutical and home healthcare informatics, IT applications in physical therapeutic treatments, rehabilitative technologies and telemedicine. By taking a broad scope with a multidisciplinary approach to understanding HISI and its implications on governmental policies, public and private sector industries, and the global economies, this journal promises to cumulate and integrate the theories, methodologies and best practices in HISI.

WikiInvest – Research About Companies and Investment Concepts
http://www.wikinvest.com/

Most investing websites force people to think in the language of ticker symbols. Wikinvest lets you start with concepts, which can be things like themes, ideas, trends, products, and industries. At Wikinvest, investors can type a company name, but they can also start with an idea like the rising price of oil, the crisis in subprime lending, the impact of internet advertising, the success of the iPhone, and the rise of ecommerce – not XOM, C, GOOG, AAPL, and AMZN. And so Wikinvest has created an intuitive way to browse investing content by concept articles, which then explain which companies are impacted and why.
