Guest Blog: Finding information from and on foreign countries, regions and markets

January 29, 2016

Arthur Weiss, Managing Director of AWARE in the UK, has given me permission to post an excellent article he wrote in 2014 for Business Information Review titled “Searching in a global environment: Finding information from and on foreign countries, regions and markets”.

This study provides an overview of the kinds of data available online around the world. Arthur focuses on what is there, why it is there, and what that means for the accuracy and comparability data. I strongly recommend it for anyone facing CI research issues outside of his/her home country.

Arthur Weiss is the managing director of AWARE, specializing in marketing and competitive intelligence training, analysis, and research. He has written and lectured globally on a variety of marketing intelligence and information industry related topics.
