If the Whitepaper is not
your piece of work you will be required to link to the original article.
A quote from the introduction of the WhitePaper (no more than 3 paragraphs) and a description of the article will also be necessary. Your post should also include the publish date of the Whitepaper so that users know how current the article is.

directory where it can then be linked to, following the appropriate posting format.
