Footnotes and endnotes are explanatory notes or references. Footnotes are inserted and printed at the bottom of the page, and endnotes are printed at the end of the document. Type bibliographic text for footnotes or endnotes at the footnote or endnote pane.
By default, Word numbers footnotes with Arabic numbers and endnotes with lowercase Roman numerals.
If you move, copy, or delete a reference number in a document, all other footnotes or endnotes are automatically renumbered.
Delete a footnote or endnote by selecting the reference number and then pressing the Delete key.
Consider using in-text citations to acknowledge sources in a paper. Commonly used citation and reference styles include American Psychological Association (APA), Modern Language Association (MLA), and Chicago Manual of Style (CMS).
Use the Insert Citation button in the Citations & Bibliography group in the References tab to insert a citation. Specify source information at the Create Source dialog box.
Modify a source by clicking the References tab, clicking the Manage Sources button, clicking the source you want to modify in the Source Manager dialog box, clicking the Edit button, and then making any desired changes at the Edit Source dialog box.
To insert a new source, click the New button at the Source Manager dialog box and then insert the information in the required fields. To delete a source, click the source in the Current List section in the Source Manager dialog box and then click the Delete button.
After including citations in a report or paper, insert a bibliography or works cited page at the end of the document on a separate page. Insert a bibliography or works cited page with the Bibliography button in the Citations & Bibliography group in the References tab.
