Description of Practice Perspective: Acronymically Speaking: Exploring the Links Between Agencies, Individuals, and Materials in Practice

Although the subjects of this month's practice features vary, the articles have at least one thing in common. They all contain acronyms. In an age when we work to convey messages efficiently, is rare to find a professional journal article that does not include several acronyms; in fact, some writing is so densely populated with them that the reader may wonder if the author is using a foreign language. In the Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB), familiar acronyms such as TVI, COMS, VRT, APH, and AER are recognized by most readers. Even so, JVIB Senior Editor Rebecca Burrichter makes them transparent by writing out the full meaning of each acronym the first time it occurs in an article. In spite of this effort, a first glance at a new article in JVIB and in any professional journal can seem a bit like peering into a bowl of alphabet soup.
