<back> Back Matter for a Book Part

Ancillary or supporting material not included as part of the main textual content of a book part, for example, appendices and lists of references. This is equivalent to the <back> element in the JATS article model(s).


The <sec> element can be used within the <back> to contain material that has not been explicitly named as one of the other back matter components, for example, a table that is not named explicitly as an appendix or a glossary.
Related Elements
Books and book parts do not use the same element for their back matter. Books may contain a <book-back> element, which may contain <book-part> elements. In contrast, book parts may contain a <back> element, similar to that of journal articles, and this <back> cannot contain <book-part> elements.
