The goal of acronym is to help finding acronyms in a Word document so you can create a list of abbreviations for your manuscript submission.


You can install the development version of acronym from GitHub with:

# install.packages("remotes")



find_acronyms(path = system.file("zotero.docx", package = "acronym"), ref_manager = "zotero")
#> ✓ List of acronyms copied to clipboard. You can now just paste it into your Word document.
#>  [1] "CCC"      "CP"       "CP1/time" "CP2-hyp"  "CP3-hyp"  "CPexp"   
#>  [7] "CPlinear" "HR"       "LOOCV"    "Pmax"     "POpeak"   "TTE"     
#> [13] "V̇O2max"   "W’"

Copy it directly into your Word document!


The way it works

acronym is going to search only for acronyms in your manuscript that are between brackets. Please, note that this is still experimental, so ultimately you should double-check the list of abbreviations retrieved. Got any ideas and/or tips for improving the code?
