Chapter 3 A modular presentation of information: general definitions

In this chapter, we present the general definitions of the notions needed in our model for modular articles. We define what we mean by a modular structure in section 3.1. In order to allow for the creation and evaluation of modular articles, this general definition has to be made concrete in a modular model, by specifying what types of modules and links can be distinguished. The role and nature of the typologies are discussed in section 3.2 and the characteristics of the modular model are given in section 3.3.
