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 easier to read by including a nomenclature list or list of terms in the front matter, on its own page, just after the abstract (for research articles) or just after the lists of figures and tables (for reports and other documents). Sometimes the nomenclature list is a list of frequently used but uncommon acronyms. One useful effect of nomenclature lists is that they help the writer use terminology in a consistent way.
