I'm using LaTeX and like to create an acknowledgement section using the report class such that is looks like the abstract and comes after it.

I went with:

\begin{abstract}
 This is cool paper about vuvuzelas.
\end{abstract}

\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Acknowledgements}
\begin{abstract}
 Thanks Mum!
\end{abstract}

This way both look similar and good.

    Good answer. Better to make a new environment, though :-) Jul 31, 2010 at 0:47

    @WillRobertson How can one make such a new environment?

    @Mathuser Something like \newenvironment{acknowledgements} {\renewcommand\abstractname{Acknowledgements}\begin{abstract}} {\end{abstract}} Feb 3, 2018 at 11:04
  • This answer also puts them in the table of contents. tex.stackexchange.com/a/25799/78560 Jun 14, 2021 at 5:28

\section*{Acknowledgements}
Thanks Mum.

  • I was about to suggest that earlier then got called away from my computer. Some people (not I) would say that you should instead use \section*{Acknowledgments}. Jul 30, 2010 at 17:13

    I bet the same people would also spell it "mom" instead. Jul 31, 2010 at 0:47

    I'd print it on aluminum foil.
