<back> Back Matter

Material published with an article but following the narrative flow.


Back matter typically contains supporting material such as an appendix, acknowledgment, glossary, or bibliographic reference list.
Related Elements
A journal article (<article>) may be divided into four components:
  1. <processing-meta> (the metadata that concerns the XML file rather than the contents of the document);
  2. <front> (the metadata or header information for the article, such as the title and the published date);
  3. <body> (textual and graphical content of the article); and
  4. <back> (any ancillary information such as a glossary, reference list, or appendix).
