I am thinking of adding a glossary to an article of mine, I was wondering if there is an etiquette regarding adding a glossary of symbols and notations? To be frank I have not seen one in any recent articles and I do not remember any specific old paper with a glossary.

  • $\begingroup$ But I think it will really help the reader to identify all the symbols and notations fast. $\endgroup$ Aug 4, 2015 at 18:40
