But you still have to enter a keyword and thus may miss an article (search for "and" or "和" by adding quotation marks). Supposing a search for "and" is actually complete, the references of the hits give the publication date (not the number of the issue!) and in most cases also name the column where the article appeared. They do not name the page number.
A click on the resource title in a hit list or an article reference selects all articles of the respective resource but only those of the most recent month.
WiseSearch is mainly meant to provide you with an up to date newsstand of hundreds of Greater Chinas information resources.http://www.wisers.com/ more Language: chi Chinese, eng English
