Will Google treat internal links as link farm
I am about to setup an archive for a site and I asked myself if Google will treat internal links as a linkfarm if there are too many.
The structure of the archive should be like this:
http://www.heise.de/newsticker/archiv/ Its German but you will understand.
So in every year I link to every week which makes of course 52 links plus some other internal links.
Will Google treat this as a link farm or is it a good method to link all published articles? Is there maybe a better solution for it?
I am thankful for every opinion

Internal links to your own domain can never be treated as a link farm.
A link farm is one when you link to a bunch of other low-quality and similar sites just for the sake of increasing link popularity.

OK, thank you very much.
This is what I guessed but I was not 100% sure.
Edit: What do you think of the structure used in the example? I think it is quiet good as it doesnt go too deep. Or you have a better solution for that? The amount of articles I want to archive is around the same, maybe even a bit more.

All Google says about this is to keep links on one page lower than 100 (I think cumulated internal and external links).
Anyway I wouldn't have more than 50 links on a page and I think is better to have an hierarchically (directory like) structure when you have a large archive.
