Users will, of course, want to search the edition for specific terms and will immediately recognise the lack of a dedicated search field in the webview. But behold, individual issues can be searched through the built-in search function of your browser. Just hit
ctrl+f (windows) or
cmd+f (macintosh) to search individual periodical issues for literal strings. To search across an entire periodical or the whole corpus, there are three instantly available options:
Search the GitHub repository of the periodical you are interested in, such as al-Muqtabas. This allows for browsing and searching and displays search results in context.
- Google’s web search provides a
site:operator that can be extensively manipulated:
site:https://github.com/tillgrallert/digital-muqtabas/blob/master search stringwill search all files in the Digital Muqtabas repository.
filetype:xmlto search only XML files. Other options would be
filetype:mdfor plain text markdown files,
filetype.bibfor BibTeX files etc.
a public Zotero group comprising bibliographic metadata for all articles and sections, including author names, titles, publication dates, volume and issue numbers etc., including links to the webview.
