Can You Read Articles from a Specific Newspaper/Magazine?
Users can read articles by issue from many popular magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Times, Economist, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Highlights for Children, National Review, and Runner’s World. Articles may be a day or two behind. Some other magazines are available, but have an embargo period (often 1, 6, or 12 months), or stopped availability at some point. Admittedly, it is not as tidy as reading the actual magazine, but users do get all of the information!
