Access Full Articles and Find Missing Articles, Non-functioning Links

Instructions for accessing a paywalled article: The media landscape has changed significantly in the last 20 years. More and more news outlets have installed paywall and registration walls. The inability to access the original publication is not something we can control, yet we do our best to include the most important excerpts in our news summaries. Textise is an excellent tool that converts webpages into text-only versions. Most of the news platforms work for Textise, even if they have paywalls. Paste the URL into the box and click "Textise."

Instructions for non-functioning links: For any link that does not function, you may be able to use Internet Archive to find the original article. To do this, copy the full URL of the non-functioning link and go to http://www.archive.org. Paste what you've copied into the box and click the "Search archived websites" button. Finally, click on any date for the original article as it was posted on the date listed.

The above method will show you exactly how the webpage looked one the date it was copied into the archive. Please note, however, that any website can request not to be listed on the Internet archive. Unfortunately, many major media websites have done this. If this is the case, you can try to find the article on another website using a quote from the original article, as mentioned above.

Instructions for finding missing articles where you have a quote or excerpt: There is an easy way to find a free copy of most news articles or other important webpages which have disappeared when you have some text or a quote from the article or webpage. Copy and paste seven to ten words quoted from the article or webpage into your favorite search engine. Put quotation marks at the beginning and end of this phrase or sentence, and then press search. The results will very likely show that the article has been posted on several other websites.
