[Tex/LaTex] Should the appendix be before the bibliography or after?


My thesis latex format does not include an appendix, but I need one. Should I put it after the bibliography or before?

Best Answer

The dominant convention, supported by Chicago, Hart's, and Butcher's, is to put the bibliography after the appendices when setting a book.

However, the conventions governing the order of end matter are much less fixed than those governing front matter, which is partly fixed in legislation. And not only books have appendices and reference lists: some conference series and journals have the appendices following the reference list.
