Many researchers are more familiar with the appendix than with the annex.
Like the annex, the appendix is a supplement or attachment to a research paper but is not part of the body of the paper.
Whatever be your field or specialization, if you are doing and appropriately documenting serious research, you must make strong, informed use of the annex and understand how it differs from the appendix.
See an example of how annexes are used, and let us know your questions and personal experiences in comments. For more information on other sections of a research paper, you can check the structure of a research paper.
Keep the author guidelines in mind for specifics on citing appendices in your main text.
Appendix pages are consecutively numbered following your main text (i.e., if your text ends on page 35, your appendix will begin with page 36).
Some style guides, such as the American Psychiatric Association, place appendices after tables and figures.
Others might ask you to include appendices before or after your references. Have you used appendices as supplements to your research paper? Please let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
What do math geniuses, scientific visionaries, economic gurus, legal scholars, leaders in government, business mavens, and the most brilliant minds in academia all have in common?
No matter how skilled and informed they are in their fields, they all have to struggle with the technical requirements of the research paper or research report.
