The title isn't great, sorry, I couldn't really come up with anything better :D Here's a bit of context:
I'm working on my thesis and am currently writing down the historical evolution of a certain subject, and I got to a point where I wrote something like this:
[...], underlining the importance of Foo in order to achieve Bar.
Directly after that sentence, I want to express that the importance of Foo has been acknowledged many times after the writing I am referring to in the quoted sentence. I was thinking of something like this:
The importance of Foo has been henceforth acknowledged in many sources [...]
So my questions are:
- Is it even possible to use "henceforth" in this manner, and if so
- Is it still commonly used, especially in a scientific environment, or does it just sound terribly outdated
