Notes and Footnotes

You and your supervisor should decide on the form and location of footnotes at an early stage in the writing of the thesis, following a style guide or style of a significant refereed journal in your field.

Notes and footnotes must be numbered consecutively throughout the thesis.

Three possible locations:

  • at the bottom of pages
  • at the end of chapters
  • at the end of the main body of the text immediately preceding the bibliography
