List of Terms

Some documents use a significant amount of new terminology,or many acronyms or abbreviations. In such instances, you can make the material easierto read by including a nomenclature list or list of terms in the frontmatter, on its own page, just after the abstract (for research articles) or just after the lists offigures and tables (for reports and other documents). Sometimes the nomenclature list is alist of frequently used but uncommon acronyms. One useful effect of nomenclature lists is thatthey help the writer use terminology in a consistent way.
