How to navigate in massive VPHA co-editing files

The main co-editing file of Virtual Project on the History of ALD (VPHA), the ALD-history-evolving-file, has at the moment 177 pages. In some months, it will have maybe two hundred pages more. How can you navigate in a giant file like this?

The easiest way that I have found is to use the search function built in every browser (shortcut typically: CRTL + f). In VPHA, each historical ALD publication has (or will get) a unique code. (In addition to navigation, the unique codes will also be used for writing the ALD History Review - more on that later.) These codes are given in parentheses, like this: {Sveshnikova1970b} en ru, both in the ALD-history-evolving-file and the VPHA-reading-overview-file. The languages, in which we have the publication available, are shown after the code itself (this is the aim, at least).

If you want to check, how many comments there are for a particular publication, use the search function in the VPHA-reading-overview-file: type in the unique code, press ENTER. Under column "# comments", you see the number. This particular publication, {Sveshnikova1970b}, has already six comments. This is more than any other publication has in VPHA has at the moment.

If you then want to see, what people have said about the contents of this publication in VPHA, carry out the same search in ALD-history-evolving-file.

As a reminder: links to these two central VPHA co-creation files, as well as other work-in-progress files, you can always (well, during the lifetime of VPHA anyway) find back in the http://vph-ald.com/VPHAopenfiles.html.
