    "in the following"

    While writing some academic articles, I often have to present what is going to be described later on.

    Usually I use expressions such as "in the following sections" "later on" etc.

    My professor always stick to "in the following" used as an adverb without any more specification. Is this proper English or not?

    Best regards
    Matteo

    It's fine. I like "below." It's more concise.
