E-submission format for sub-chronic and chronic studies
Current as of June 25, 2008
The purpose of this document is to suggest the format for final reports (right column) and to provide instructions for creation of Adobe PDF electronic submission documents (left column). Regarding PDF, both 'bookmarks' and 'links' are referenced. Bookmarks and links are similar in function in that both provide the reader with a way to move efficiently through a document as well as across documents. Bookmarks are a type of link that appear in the navigation pane on the left side of the PDF Reader user screen. Links appear within the body of a document as blue text. They permit the reader to jump to other locations with related information in the same document or other electronic documents.
