Q. Dear CMS staff: We are editing a multiauthor scientific book. One of the authors is dedicating his chapter to someone. Generally, a dedication is part of prelims and belongs to the entire book. I could not find any style for this kind of case. Could you please suggest how to set this line?
A. Certainly. You can set it as an unnumbered footnote on the first page of the chapter or at the beginning of the endnotes.
