How to Use the Note System
Use a superscript to mark points which require documentation or clarification. They are typed or written numbers raised slightly above the level of the surrounding text. For example: 'the text from which I have derived my ideas.'1 The numbers run consecutively, from 1, through the whole assignment. The numbers are placed as close as possible to the point to which you are drawing attention, generally at the end of the relevant sentence and generally following any punctuation marks.
A series of notes corresponding with the numbers are placed either at the foot of the page or at the end of the assignment. Whether you use footnotes or endnotes depends on the nature of your assignment. Whether you are preparing your assignment on a word processor or handwriting, you will find either method easy to use, but footnotes are often handier from the reader's viewpoint.
There are a number of circumstances when it is appropriate to use notes:
Your most frequent note references are likely to be to books, primary texts and secondary sources, and serial articles.
