Writing articles Footnote example 2

References and footnotes

When you write an article and a reference is generally applicable, then it can be listed at the end of the article without using footnotes.

Alternatively, if a reference relates to a particular part of an article, a footnote can be used.[1]

Having the same reference appearing in both footnotes and references is clumsy. A better way is to list all references together and use short footnote references.[2]

The codes used for footnotes are described elsewhere.

Usually articles are several pages long and the footnotes are separated from the text. So:
  • To go from the article text to the appropriate footnote, click on the superscript footnote number.
  • To go from a footnote back to the appropriate place in the article, click on carat symbol at the beginning of the footnote.
(This article is too short to show the linking properly.)
