Acknowledgment Section

“Acknowledgments” is the blanket term used to cover the information that follows the body of the article and precedes the references. The Acknowledgment section is considered to be a continuation of the text, so that abbreviations expanded in the text may stand without expansion here. If a footnote that would normally appear on the first page of the article (eg, the affiliation footnote) is too long to be placed on the first page, it may be placed here immediately after the acceptance date and, if applicable, the online-publication-ahead-of-print information; if the journal does not publish acceptance dates, the affiliation footnote that did not fit on the first page would be placed first in the Acknowledgment section. (Note: See also 2.3, Footnotes to Title Page, where some additional types of acknowledgment footnotes are discussed. Placement of these may vary among journals.) Examples of various parts of the Acknowledgment section follow, in the order used by JAMA and the Archives Journals. (See also 5.2, Legal and Ethical Considerations, Acknowledgments, Box.)
