  • 11. World Scholar combines a wealth of electronic reference content with a vast archive of digital primary source documents. The combination of reference and archival content ensures that learning and research complement each other in a single resource.
  • The Search Results for the term “rebellion” return 5 Topic pages, 153 academic journal articles, etc Within your first search (the example here shows the term “rebellion”) you will see a very intuitive left hand side bar categorizing the many different content types- organizing your research to assist with information literacy providing foundational context needed by today’s learners to get ready for that deeper dive into historic primary sources…
  • The Editorial Advisory Board--consisting of Editor-in-Chief Erick Langer and 12 Associates and Consultants from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Latin America-- plays a prominent and ongoing role in World Scholar . The responsibilities of the Board include the selection of topics and research materials, the review of curated content, such as primary sources and newly commissioned essays. They also report on the usability of features and tools.
  • College students do not necessarily enter the university perfectly prepared for their course of study. Interviews with professors and students reveal that even at the university level, research skills can be raw to non-existent. The Topic Pages facilitate understanding of a subject area, enabling students to become effective researchers. World Scholar contains 286 curated topic pages and growing that contextualize a wide array of research materials across the humanities and social sciences, for current events and as a historical perspective. The Editors, in close consultation with the Advisory Board, continue to add new content and new topic pages on a monthly basis. Each topic page features an authoritative overview essay signed by an expert scholar and peer-reviewed by the Academic Advisory Board.
  • The rich multimedia environment of World Scholar provides researchers with interactive tools and dynamically organized resources, including scholarly journals, dynamically updated newspapers and periodicals, award-winning Scribner reference articles, primary sources, case studies, web links, images, videos, and audio podcasts.
  • Gale World Scholar contains 1.4 million pages of archival documents, 800,000 of which are newly digitized and unique to the product- providing new scholarship only found right here within this resource. Comprised of 32 collections, such as Brazil’s Popular Groups, 1966-1986, Mexican and Central American Political and Social Ephemera, and U.S. State Department papers from across Latin America, the digital archive provides scholars unique access into the region’s history and culture. With such a robust and focused archive surrounding a region- researchers will be able to expand their research, reach new intellect on their area of interest as well as be able to teach with fresh new material.
  • The Document Viewer provides tools for enhancing the research experience. The document image can be enlarged or reduced in size, rotated, split horizontally or vertically, or expanded to fill the screen. The brightness and contrast can be controlled, and the document can be inverted into a negative image. The document image shown here has been inverted into a negative.
  • There are more than 240 interactive statistical charts and growing covering such categories as the economy, commodities, environment, government, education, health, infrastructure, and demographics. One can toggle between 3 different styles of chart (Bubble as shown here, Bar and Line) to see the statistical data graphically rendered.
  • The Editors of World Scholar continue to add new and updated statistics on a regular basis. Also, the data can be downloaded as graphs or charts, or as an Excel spreadsheet.
  • The integrated content available in Gale World Scholar is vital for anyone seeking a profound understanding of a particular region, including daily life, culture, traditions, its inhabitants, and chronicles past and present from a historical and contemporary perspective — in a searchable, digital format. The result is a captivating picture of the region that is larger and richer than the sum of its parts. Gale World Scholar gathers together not only English-language/U.S.-based materials on the chosen region, but also presents a view from within the region. Interviews with professors highlighted the need for these two components and the difficulty educators presently have in finding them.
  • [Conclusion] The combination of original scholarship and the digital archive ensures that learning and research complement each other in a single multimedia environment. Factor in the wide range of content types, the depth of the archival material, and an intuitive user experience makes Gale World Scholar stand as a unique and valuable offering to academic libraries and institutions.
  • Equip researchers/business students to research international business topics and compare economies, companies, and industries by providing data, tools, and context. Enable professors to better teach international business by organizing our content around countries, data sets, and topics, and by extending our cases and data from the research environment into the learning environment. Enable librarians to serve professors and students seeking hard-to-find data, demonstrating the enduring value of the library to the academic institution.
  • New: Case studies New: Statistical data New: Country overviews New: In-depth industry reports New: IB topic overviews
  • Simple and easy to navigate homepage. Quick links to case studies, comparison tools, a robust business glossary, etc.
  • Notice that everything is tightly interlinked. If you’re in a country you quickly see the top companies and top industries of that country. If you’re in a company you see it’s major competitors and industries it partakes in. If you’re in an industry you see the countries and top companies within that industry. Everything is one-click away. You can click into the top company here for Peru and then you’re in the company profile.
  • You see a large dip in Argentina due to unpegging their currency from US dollar – you start to see these correlations in the related articles. If you do a search of life expectancy for South Africa you’ll see that all of the articles in the 90s have to do with AIDS and that’s where you’ll see a huge dip in the graph. The Argentine Currency Board pegged the Argentine peso to the U.S. dollar between 1991 and 2002 in an attempt to eliminate hyperinflation and stimulate economic growth. While it initially met with considerable success, the board's actions ultimately failed.
