6. Footnotes

Footnotes to text/material should be written in a comprehenship note rather than in encyclopedic note, and should be indicated by numerical superscripts: 1, 2, 3, etc. 

Example for Comprehenship Notes:

It would appear a key implication of recent reflections upon teaching as activity and role that the occupational status of education and teaching – the question of whether it should be regarded as a profession, accupation, vocation or so fort – turns largely upon the extent and nature of its relationship to some sort of theoretical or principal inquiry. Moreover, given that theory-implicatedness seems a pivotal condition of genuine or full professional status, it would seem that those who seek to claim both that teaching should be regarded as a profession and that theoretical reflection is irrelevant to educational practice – as both pre- and in-service teachers training sometimes appear to do – are near to cutting off the branch upon which they wish to sit: it is for this reason that those approaches to teacher training that be part of the relevance of theoretical reflection to effective educational practice are invariably regarded to inhance profesionalism.
