InfoLinks provide Florida Entomologist authors opportunities to publish supplementary
material (e.g., color illustrations, complete data sets, audio clips) and, in
most implementations, to add to and correct the supplementary material later.
How an InfoLink works
An “InfoLink” is a hyperlink that is installed at an article’s listing in the online table of contents of an issue of Florida Entomologist. An InfoLink hyperlink functions in one of two ways:
(1) The InfoLink acesses a URL of the author’s choosing.
The URL that is accessed will, in most cases, be an HTML file under
the author’s control. This file may direct the viewer to other files
relevant to the published article or to its author(s).
The advantage of this type of InfoLink is that the author retains
control of the content that is reached. The disadvantage is that the
link will probably go dead in 50 years or less.
(2) The InfoLink accesses a file or files permanently posted on the same web site as the article.
The author submits the file or files to be posted. If more than
one file, one of the files must contain hyperlinks to the others. This
“gateway” file will be the one reached by clicking on the article’s
Because the content of permanently posted files cannot be changed,
the author should make sure that the information in the files will not
quickly become outdated. In a permanently posted file, the author can
nonetheless link to files that can be updated.
Preparing the file or files for this type InfoLink is entirely the
author’s responsibility. Before submission, be sure that all links work
and that spelling and grammar meet your standards.
Your InfoLink will be indicated by the phrase “More information”
under your name in the online table of contents that lists your
article. You can make the link more descriptive by specifying up to 20
additional words. For example, your link could read “More information: color pictures of all species and the complete data matrix.”
To examine an InfoLink with color illustrations, go online to the article by James E. Lloyd in the June 1997 issue of Florida Entomologist. To examine an Infolink with a long data set, go online to the article by Zaifu Xu et al. in the December 2011 issue of Florida Entomologist.
When and how to purchase
You can purchase an InfoLink when you publish an article. You
can also purchase an InfoLink at any time for any of your articles. All
that an author need do to purchase a Link is to fill out an InfoLink
form (see below) and send it with the $45 payment to
Business Manager, Florida Entomologist, P.O. Box 1007, Lutz, FL 33548-1007. Please send a copy of the InfoLink form and any supplementary materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Removing or changing an InfoLink
You may delete your InfoLink at any time, without charge, by written request to the Associate Editor for Florida Entomologist on WWW (email@example.com). For the cost of a new InfoLink, an author may substitute a new Link for an old one.
Note: If you delete an InfoLink that involves one or more
permanently posted files, the files will not be deleted when the
hyperlink is removed. Although they will no longer be accessible from
the relevant online table of contents, they can be reached by anyone who
has their URLs. If you substitute a new Link for a deleted one, you may
either ignore earlier permanently posted files or link to and explain
