You can search these indexes
(1) go to the correct year (click on that
year below, on this page)
(2) then use the "find" command in your web browser
(3) then searching the titles of articles for keywords.
Major articles since 1996 are posted on
this site. If you are looking for an article before then, find the RW issue numbers
containing that article, and then read it in back issues of the Revolutionary Worker.
About these indexes:
- The RW and OR indexes are different from
each other in several ways.
- The RW index is a listing of titles and is
not organized by categories. You can search on a computer using keywords.
- Information in the RW index is organized in
the following order: Issue / Date / Page / Kicker / Headline / Subhead / Byline. The
delimiter used to separate fields is "space-comma-space."
- The OR index is organized by categories. You
can search by keywords. You can also print out the OR index and search it by categories.
- The RW indexes are organized by year, not by
RW volume. Each index starts with the first RW issue of that calendar year.
- The OR indexes are organized by volume. Each
index starts with a May first issue.
Using these indexes:
- The indexes involve several large HTML files
(the standard file format of web pages). The total size of the two indexes is over 2
megabytes. Basically you will want to make sure you have enough storage space to handle
them. You will probably want to download them onto a computer hard drive or zip drive. You
cannot currently do a search directly on this website.
- Once you have the HTML files on your hard
drive, you can search them using your Internet browser. Or you can convert them into
formats that your word processor can search using its "find" function.
- Keyword searches mean that you can search
for any word that appears in an article's title or subtitle.
- It is also possible to convert the RW
indexes into database files, so that you can run database queries of all RW years and
- The RW index exists in Access database form,
but has not yet been posted on this website for FTP download.
