Finding and Creating Permalinks: Factiva

Permalinks in Factiva

As with all permalinks, you must first get to the specific item you want the permalink for.

  1. First navigate to the specific article within Factiva that you want to link to.
  2. Click on the button above the article.
  3. Copy the URL that appears under "Within my account (Recommended)".
  4. Add the following string to the end of that URL to create a stable link: &XSID=S001cVrZWvaMXmnNdmnM9EvN9UoMDYr5DByWcNGOTNHYdNZUUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUEA

So, in the example above, you would copy the Factiva-provided URL: https://global-factiva-com.ezproxy.neu.edu/redir/default.aspx?P=sa&NS=16&AID=9NOR011000&an=J000000020161017ecah00028&cat=a&ep=ASI and add the string of characters above to result in a permalink of: https://global-factiva-com.ezproxy.neu.edu/redir/default.aspx?P=sa&NS=16&AID=9NOR011000&an=J000000020161017ecah00028&cat=a&ep=ASI&XSID=S001cVrZWvaMXmnNdmnM9EvN9UoMDYr5DByWcNGOTNHYdNZUUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUEA.

If you'd like to shorten this URL for convenience, consider using a service like Bitly.
