World Medical Journal

May 26, 2006

World Medical Journal
http://www.wma.net/e/publications/index.htm

2004 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the appearance of the World Medical Journal. It is therefore appropriate that with the appearance of Volume 50, the World Medical Journal should be made available on the Web. This also coincides with the arrival of a new Honorary Editor-in-Chief, and the move to a slightly enlarged quarterly publication. The arrangement of the contents has also been modified to enhance its reflection of the aims and activities of the WMA. It is not the function of the WMJ to publish new scientific medical research. This is clearly the function of the multitude of information available in either the broad-based or specialised journals. However, there is a place for publishing overviews of trends, new areas of medical progress which may not appear in the general run of medical journals and which can increase physicians’ awareness of developments of which they may be unaware. The changed layout, which is notable by the prominence of a “Medical Ethics and Human Rights” section, is complemented by a section entitled Medical Science, Professional Practice and Education. The Secretary General’s column has been reintroduced and in a section entitled Regional and National Medial Association (NMA) News, we will try to report on regional developments, and NMA initiatives or problems. All WMA news and important international developments, notably from WHO, will, of course, continue to appear. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Cryptologia

May 26, 2006

Cryptologia
http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/01611194.asp

Cryptologia is the only scholarly journal in the world dealing with the history, the technology, and the effect of the most important form of intelligence in the world today – communications intelligence. It fosters the study of all aspects of cryptology — technical as well as historical and cultural. The journal’s articles have broken many new paths in intelligence history. They have told for the first time how a special agency prepared information from codebreaking for President Roosevelt, have described the ciphers of Lewis Carroll, revealed details of Hermann Goering’s wiretapping agency, published memoirs – written for it — of some World War II American codebreakers, disclosed how American codebreaking affected the structure of the United Nations, translated from the Arabic portions of the world’s first texts on cryptanalysis and from the German a study of Nazi cryptanalysis, printed an archivally-based article on a hitherto-unknown area: German Western-Front codebreaking in World War I, reprinted Winston Churchill’s 1920s pleading to be given intercepts, and many many others. The journal has published a speech by the head of the National Security Agency, the nation’s codebreaking and codemaking organization that is larger than the CIA, and an analysis of the government-proposed national Data Encryption Standard. Technical articles analyzed the cryptosystems generated by cipher machines, including the famous Enigma, using algebra and have reported the solution of historical cryptograms. They have explained the linguistic basis of the Navajo language used by codetalkers in the Pacific and how digital communications can conceal illustrations or watermarks that authenticate the source. One article demonstrated the inadequacy of ciphers based on music. The journal carried the obituary of the premier bibliographer of cryptology. And it reviews the many new books on the wide spectrum of ideas in cryptology and its associated fields.

Google Notebook

May 25, 2006

Google Notebook
http://www.google.com/notebook

Google Notebook is a simple way for users to save and organize their thoughts when conducting research online. This personal browser tool permits users to clip text, images, and links from the pages they’re browsing, save them to an online “notebook” that is accessible from any computer, and share them with others. Google Notebook is an interactive scratch pad for every website a user visits, offering a single online location to collect web findings without having to leave the browser window. For example, if a user were planning a vacation, she could clip the most relevant materials on the pages she visits and add personal notes to help organize all of her research. Users can make their Google Notebook public and share the notes they’ve taken with others. As a result, the time and effort put into their research can be harnessed by the online community as a whole.

Google Trends

May 25, 2006

Google Trends
http://www.google.com/trends/

With Google Trends, you can compare the world’s interest in your favorite topics. Enter up to five topics and see how often they’ve been searched for on Google over time. Google Trends also displays how frequently your topics have appeared in Google News stories, and which geographic regions have searched for them most often. Google Trends analyzes a portion of Google web searches to compute how many searches have been done for the terms you enter relative to the total number of searches done on Google over time. We then show you a graph with the results — our search-volume graph. Located just beneath our search-volume graph is our news-volume graph. This graph shows you the number of times your topic appeared in Google News stories. When Google Trends detects a spike in the volume of news stories for a particular term, it labels the graph and displays the headline of an automatically selected Google News story written near the time of that spike. Currently, only English-language headlines are displayed, but we hope to support non-English headlines in the future. Below the search and news volume graphs, Google Trends displays the top cities, regions, and languages for the first term you entered.

Google Co-op
http://www.google.com/coop

Google Co-op is about sharing expertise. You can contribute your expertise and benefit when others do the same. Help other users find information more easily by creating “subscribed links” for your services and labeling webpages around the topics you know best. This is a work in progress, but even in its early stages, Google Co-op has the potential to let you contribute your expertise to the overall goal of making information more discoverable for everyone.
