Section 3.3.7


An acknowledgments section is sometimes included in the front matterof a longer report, thesis, orcollection to note the assistance of people whose help was crucial but not extensive enough towarrant their being listed as co-authors. Thesis advisors, technicians, and colleagues who gave advice or time are all candidates for the acknowledgmentssection.

This section is often placed just after the list of tables. In articles and shorter reports,acknowledgments may be made in the end matter at the very beginningof the list of references.
