Back Matter

Ancillary or supporting material not included as part of the main textual content of a standards document or adoption, for example, annexes.

Parts of a Standards Document: A standard <standard> may be divided into several structural components.
  • The front matter for the standards document (<front>), which may contain:
  • The body of the standard (<body>), which contains the textual and graphical content of the standards document
  • Any back matter (<back>) such as annexes and reference lists
Components of an Adoption: An adoption (<adoption>) may contain several top-level components:
  • An <adoption-front> element, which contains document-level and adoption-level metadata, possibly with notes and prose sections;
  • An optional adopting back matter element (<back>) provided by the adopting organization, which contains annexes in the local language or additional requirements or notes (Note: Some adopting organizations place all their adoption material, including adoption-specific back matter, before the standard they are adopting; others place the adoption-specific back matter after the standard being adopted. The NISO STS model for <adoption> allows either location to be used, though not both at once.);
  • The contents of the <adoption> that contain or point to the standard being adopted. This may include one or more of the following: The <std-xref> element may be particularly useful when a standards organization does not possess the XML version of the standard they are adopting, but only, for example, the PDF version. The <std-xref> element can also be used in situations where the adopting organization does not have permission to distribute the standard being adopted.
  • An optional adopting back matter element (<back>) provided by the adopting organization, which contains annexes in the local language or additional requirements or notes. (Note: Some adopting organizations place all their adoption material, including adoption-specific back matter, before the standard they are adopting; others place the adoption-specific back matter after the standard being adopted. The NISO STS model for <adoption> allows either location to be used, though not both at once.)
