It's unclear what you want to do. It sounds like you want to link to the PDF
version of the magazine article, and only display the magazine pages
relating to the article, eliminating all the other pages of the magazine.
There have been a lot of suggestions of how to delete pages from a PDF file,
but nothing about ensuring only select pages are displayed from a linked PDF
that you have no control over. If that is what you are asking, I'm not sure
you can do it with Acrobat.
