The ISSF glossary includes definitions for terms you’ll see on our site. We compiled the glossary from several publications and resources, which are listed in our glossary bibliography.

There are several ways you can use the glossary:

  • Scroll through the entire glossary list.
  • Search for a specific word or term.
  • View the glossary alphabetically by clicking a letter box in the bar. If a letter box is gray, no glossary terms exist for that letter.

Glossary comments or suggestions can be sent to us at [email protected].
