Hello all
I am working with a little project indexing projects and other articles in the elector magazine from 1975 to 1989. That I found in a scanned collection.
Of course some of this stuff are outdated, components not produced any more and so on. But well anyway I am doing it because it is still hidden gems in the older elktor project. And it is also fun to read many of those old paragraphs. As it was long before my time.  The job is quite easy using OCR and Word. Could any else be interested in the final result? I have a little teaser (1975-79). It is quite crude and not much proofing is done.

I searched the net. But could not find anything in English. I could not get something useful from your site. Maybe I did something wrong. Can you post some examples of the lists here.
Elektor have  CDs (in English) which can be searched from 1990. So my little project will stop anyway from the end of 1989.

I have the index of the Portuguese version from 1985 (first edition in Portugal) up to 1996.
Unfortunately, the articles in the Portuguese version are not the same as the English for the same magazine. In fact the articles are translations but they appear in Portugal some months/years after being published in the English version.

I stopped reading the Portuguese version because of this Sad

As I understand. It is only one complete collection of Elektor magazine in English on the net. Covering the periode from 1975 to 1989. This collection is based on the UK version up to 1984. And then the India version from 1984. The UK and India version are indentical. Part from that the INdia version was lagging one month behind the UK version. My work will be based on the collection of scanned magazines. What I do is simply to OCR the cummulative index for that year. Elektor presented this list in the last issue of the year or in the first issue the next year.
@moderators! Then I am done. What will be the preferred section to post this index?
