Documenting Sources

You should always acknowledge the work of other writers to allow readers to judge the quality of the information based on the quality of the source, and to enable the reader to verify information. Some writers use parenthetical references to documentation sources; others include footnotes or endnotes.

Footnotes and Endnotes

Footnotes are short notes set at the bottom of the page. Endnotes are placed at the end of the report. Usually, both footnotes and endnotes are numbered, with a small number inserted at the end of the text with the corresponding footnote at the bottom of the page. Endnotes are listed at the end of the report.
