Upcoming days, I'll be working on the design of a dissertation. A friend of mine is becoming a real doctor. In these collection of scientific articles, which, all together, form the body of the dissertation, lots & lots of abbrevations are used, in various kinds. For example:
protein S, protein A, type III, PS antigen, VTE, ATE, acronyms like 'DESCARTES'.
For me, it's all mambojambo, but I wanted to be clear and straightforward and set all these abbrevations in (spaced) small caps.
That's quite a tough job of typographic handwork but I think it's necessary, or at least the best solution.
Am I right with this?
