Do you want to link documents and pictures to an article? Then upload them first! Learn here how to do it.


1. First of all, name the document!

Before uploading, we recommend to name the file properly. For a publication you could use title, author/publisher, and year. For example: Health Systems_WHO_2017

For a picture, you could use a word that describes what is shown in the image, the name of the photographer and the year the picture was taken. For example: Solarpanel_Tanzania_NameOfPhotographer_2015

2. Click on the option Upload file in the toolbox on the left column of the page.
