Start exploring here

Credo is an academic alternative to Wikipedia. It includes topic pages with mind maps (examples: agriculturecattle, and organic food) and specialized entries from several encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other reference sources (example: Food Justice, from Encyclopedia of Diversity and Social Justice and Fishing and Fish Stocks from Global Social Issues: An Encyclopedia). As a reference source, it's a good place to start and to help formulate your topic.
