Glossary of Terms

Key Term, Role & Acronym Definitions and Synonyms

Overview

This glossary is a compilation of the business terminology relevant to the KFS system. It also includes any technical terminology that users of the system must understand and some general research administration terminology.

Warning! Disclaimer: The maintainers of this archive are not necessarily the authors or maintainers of the individual term or acronym definitions appearing in this glossary. To correct or contribute to this document, send an e-mail to kfsglossary@kuali.org. Contributions of others may be copyright of those individuals. You may copy and distribute this document in any form provided you acknowledge this source. Exclusion of a term does not necessarily mean it is not acceptable.

Purpose

The purpose of the KFS Glossary is to foster common understanding of terminology between the users and developers of the system. Terms are listed alphabetically by term, acronym or abbreviation, not by meaning.

Note: Context-sensitive, functional field descriptions can be found interspersed throughout the KFS Online Help and User Documentation set. Refer to the appropriate topic by screen, page or tab name for the corresponding field to locate the field definition table in that section.
