Yes. The system refers to these supplementary items as Associated Files. You will be prompted to submit Associated Files when you upload your submission. The name of the files you upload will appear on the web site along with your short description of it. Viewers must have the necessary software to open your files.

Please be sure there are no permissions issues related to use of the associated material. Sometimes, especially with images, you must seek permission to use the material before it can be posted.

Also note that where possible, items such as images, charts and tables that are referenced in the document (or otherwise an integral part of the document) should be included directly in the article itself and not posted only as associated files.
