Chapter 5 Evaluation of the modular model

In this chapter, we evaluate the modular model that we presented in the previous chapter, investigating whether it is possible to write modular articles that satisfy the interactants' requirements. We compare two particular modularised articles, which are given in appendix C, with the original, linear versions. We evaluate the feasibility of modular articles, by discussing the modularisation process, and the adequacy of the resulting modular articles: to what extent do the modular articles meet the communication criteria  and thereby fulfil the readers' requirements, in comparison with the linear articles?

We first introduce the domain-specific application of the modular model. Then we discuss, in section 5.2, the feasibility and the adequacy of modularised articles in general terms, before we specifically address the different types of modules in section 5.3, and the different types of links in section 5.4.
