General guidelines for links

A module is a document representing a conceptual information unit. Likewise a link is a physical connection that represents different types of relations identified at the conceptual level.

[To the full figure] Figure A.2: The source and the target of a link are 1) an entire module or 1) a segment of a module. The relata of the relation expressed in such a link are 1) an entire module or 2) a segment of a module, or 3) an information unit underlying an entire module or 4) an information unit underlying a segment of a module, or 5) an entity addressed in an entire module or 6) in one addressed in a segment of a module

Relations can be identified between so called `relata', where each relatum can be 1) the `real world' entity addressed in an entire module, 3) an entity addressed in part of a module, 2) an information unit underlying an entire module, 3) an information unit underlying a segment of a module, 4) an entire module itself, or 5) a segment of a module. A link expressing a relation can be created between a source and a target, which can be 1) an entire module or 2) a segment of a module. Accordingly, the source (and the target) of a link can 1) coincide with the corresponding relatum, or 2) represent the relatum. The source can also 3) be a part of the relatum, or 4) represent a part of the relatum. The source cannot contain (a representation of) the relatum.

The format of this navigation menu will be specified for the journal in which the article is to be published. The author should have at his disposal software allowing him to automatically generate the navigation menu in the correct format, as well as the map of contents and the lists of references in the Meta-information. We suggest requirements for such authoring tools in section 
6.2.2.

In the following, specific guidelines will be given for the identification of such relations and their representation in links.
