comment Where should index and glossary appear in a report?
In my specific case, issues are a bit more elaborate. There's no department-level accepted writing style, so my adviser's opinion might be different from that of thesis committee. Hence, I am not only supposed to be accountable for my scientific participation; but also the typesetting and formatting of the thesis. This is why I am looking for a justifiable answer. For better or worse, the common practice for scientific writing style in Farsi (which I am supposed to present my thesis in) is to adopt and adapt style guides of English.

comment Where should index and glossary appear in a report?
I am asking about the Correct answer, or at least the better way to do this. My advisor insists that glossary and index should come as appendices, which I think isn't right.

@Kris, I am the original poster. This is just what I have perceived from other papers, yet I don't have any reference that have stated this. Even IEEE BibTeX style only enumerates possible fields but not required ones.

comment Return to section context after a subsection
In my case subsections are several paragraphs long and using either indentation or bullets will make the output a bit ugly by putting a blank area at the left side of the page.

BibTeX itself has some required fields. For a journal article these fields are author, title, journal, year; but almost everyone includes volume, number/month and pages.
