    Post otherwise

    Hi,

    I want to know if the word "otherwise" in the sentence below means "differently"? or conveys another definition?

    However, due to itís close similarity to IPC, and since we do not use IPC otherwise in this paper, we call our approach as IPC based technique.

    Thanks

    Sort of. Here it means "in any other capacity". Whatever it is they are talking about is similar to "IPC" and they are going to call it an "IPC-based technique" in this paper because won't cause confusion as "IPC" is not used anywhere else or to mean anything else in the paper.

    Note that there should not be an apostrophe in "its" at the beginning of the sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
