Footnotes can be used throughout the manuscript. They must be placed at the bottom of the page,
but within the body of the page - not within the footer. Footnotes must not extend into the 1"
bottom margin or disrupt the location of the page number. They can be single-spaced entirely or
single-spaced with a double-space between each entry.
- Font: Same style and size as the remainder of the manuscript.
Size may be reduced to as low as 8pt, but must be legible.
- Line Spacing: Single-spaced (However, you may double-space between each entry)
- Footnote numbers in the text (and in the actual footnote) should be styled as superscript - where the number appears
smaller, and toward the top of the word it's noting. (i.e.: Line of text1)
- All footnotes are numbered consecutively and typed in Arabic numerals using a consistent style.
Option A: Sequential (1, 2, 3,...)
Option B: Sequential by Chapter (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.2, 3.1,...)
