7.9  List of Terminology: ABBREVIATIONS

   
Page Title Type “LIST OF ABBREVIATIONS” in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, 12pt.
This should be typed 2 line spaces from the top margin, and centered within the left and right margins.
Text start text 2 line spaces after the page title; double-spaced
Alignment

Abbreviated forms are flush left.

The first letter of every extended form (the full wording) must be in line with one another. The best to do this is the set a “left tab”. AVOID using the space bar because unevenness usually results.

Spacing Each entry should be single-spaced, double space between entries. For example, the explanation of “UNESCO” extends beyond one line and has two lines single-spaced. However, the space between UNESCO and PV, and the space between UNESCO and WHC are double-spaced. Such spacing facilitates reading.
Case use title case and standard capitalization style for proper
nouns, whichever is more appropriate.
Page Number roman number, lower case: “x” or the number that follows the last page of the immediately preceding List of Figures.
