New Feature: External Articles

Our goal at Ancient History Encyclopedia is always to give you great content that cannot be found elsewhere on the internet, but we cannot deny that various universities and journals have already published excellent research papers (usually PDFs) that we would like to publish here on the site. Unfortunately, these papers are usually protected by copyright. Now we have found a way around this: We can now embed external papers as articles, but the papers remain on the site they were published on! While we still encourage you to write your own content for the site, it would be great if you could also add external papers as articles, whenever you find them! Simply create a new article, choose the “I want to link to an existing article on the internet” option, link to the paper, and add an abstract — done. You can find an example here.
