The Guide to Cross-Referencing DC Articles by URL
We receive countless inquiries at MPAmedia from those who view articles on www.chiroweb.com and can't tell what issues of our publications they appeared in. To illustrate, let's say you want to cite an article by Chester Wilk, DC: "The Most Dangerous Time in History."
First, navigate with a competent browser. Preferred browsers are:
Microsoft Internet Explorer: www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp;
Netscape Communicator: http://channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers/download.jsp; and
Opera: www.opera.com. All are available for downloading.
One of t he more comprehensive search engines to use is at www.google.com. You can type in phrases such as "chiroweb most dangerous time in history," combining our website, ChiroWeb, with part of the article title, and receive numerous results.
After finding the article, click on the link to it in your search results; note the URL at the top or bottom of your page. For this article, it should read:
There are three sets of numbers to look for in the URL. The first is 13, the volume number.
The chart below shows what volume number corresponds to what year an article was published. In this case, you know that the article was published in 1995.
Go to the "previous issues" link at ChiroWeb and select the "1995 articles" link.
Pass your cursor over the issue dates listed, and stop when you see the 12 in the URL. You should be at the index page showing the article titles for the June 5, 1995 issue (http:www.chiroweb.com/archives/13/12/index.html).
Click on the link for the June 5 issue. As you scroll to the article by Dr. Wilk, you should see the URL
http://www.chiroweb.com/archives/13/12/06.html. Note that the article on the index page is the sixth one shown, hence the "06" in the URL.
To summarize: When you see an article in chiroweb, you can now tell (by the chart above) what year it was published in, which issue number in that year it was published (by the second set of digits), and how far it is down the page (after you get to the issue page).
