Core Articles

What are core articles? Core articles are our top priority articles – articles that are most in demand and most important for us to include in an encyclopedia that has any hope of being comprehensive.

These are the highest priority articles items for the Literature Workgroup, though they have not yet been finalized by a Workgroup editor. In order to keep the list manageable, this list should be contain no more than about 200 items total. Thus only those articles should be added which can reasonably be considered of paramount importance for the Literature WG.
