Does linking to reputable sites increase an article's SEO?

I'm aware of backlinking to your own work as a way to increase traffic, but recently came across the claim that hyperlinking to (related) professional sites also increases traffic by increasing SEO. Is this true? Any insight is appreciated.

    Thanks for your thoughts, Tim. Seems backlinking should take higher priority, at least in terms of increasing traffic.
