Appendix Group

Related Elements

This element is similar to (but not the same as) the JATS Appendix Group element (<app-group>). An Appendix Group (<app-group>) is part of a book part such as a chapter or a JATS article. It holds a collection of section-level appendices (<app>) and is placed into the back matter (<back>) of the chapter or article. A Book Appendix Group (<book-app-group>) holds a collection of book-part-level appendix elements (<book-app>) that relate to the entire book; this element is found in the back matter of the whole book (<book-back>) rather than within the back matter of a single book part (<back>).
