Cross-references to other relevant articles in the Encyclopedia will significantly enhance the value of your article, and will be a key feature of any online edition of EQF.
Cross-references can be placed both in the body of an article ('inline cross references'), or as a list at the end of the article ('Related Articles'). 'Inline cross references' refer the reader to other articles which give more detailed information on the topic being discussed at that point. 'Related Articles' cross-references are a list of other articles on related topics which the reader may find of interest.
Please include cross-references in your article wherever you feel that they would be useful. Please use the target
article's Unique ID number in your cross-reference (article titles sometimes change, but the Unique ID number stays
the same). A list of all planned articles and their Unique ID numbers can be found in the EQF Master list through
the link below.
