Good day,
I'd rather have references over icons.

(I'm not sure of the context in which the term 'icon' is used here, but my understanding is that it provides a general link, for instance to a general resource such as a website. I hope i get it right, since this is the basis of my response.)

References are better than icons, especially since they are very very specific, somewhat like the needle in the haystack, which is what someone looking for the source of any article would like to have.
Perhaps icons may be given as additions for anyone who would like to gain more general knowledge, for instance at the end of the text, and referenced (Ahaa!) to their specific location within the text.

I generally prefer refernces to icons. I find them more helpful.
