1. How do you use footnotes in an essay?

The use of footnotes is to be determined by your Department’s guiding reference principle. It is commonplace for students to come across essays with footnotes. The following are some of the reasons why citations are important in writings: When you cite other sources, it is a pointer to the fact that you have adequately done your research.

2. Where do you put the cursor when writing footnotes?

The cursor should be placed after any punctuation. The number linking to the footnote should appear outside the sentence, not inside of it. If you do not know where to find the menu to insert footnotes in your word processing program, go to the help menu and research it before starting to footnote your paper.

3. Do footnotes start at the beginning of each page?

Use sequential numbers for footnotes throughout your paper. Footnote numbers count up from “1” throughout your paper – they do not start over at the beginning of each page. Each footnote has its own number, even if it is citing the same source as a previous footnote.
