Footnotes Or Endnotes?

Recommended Posts

For me it depends entirely upon the publication. Is this for a book, a club magazine, an article in a commercial publication, a historical society or organization. Is it on line or in print. Also what has been done before. Is it a technical article or historical ?  Makes no sense to me to switch formats etc if one has already been in use and the readers are used to reading it that way. To me footnotes are best if kept fairly brief, perhaps to clarify or give a little clearer definition of what is being conveyed. Endnotes may be longer to perhaps note exactly where the information was found if it is not in the text of the article.
