This referencing style is used in some arts and humanities subjects. It allows readers to see immediately the source of information or to get a glimpse of a discussion point on the same page as the text. The citation in the text makes the link to the footnote with a number, usually in superscript. Sources are first shown in footnotes at the bottom of the page, in the order in which they occur throughout the essay or article, or, less often, as endnotes at the end. All sources, and other sources read but not cited, are collected together in a full bibliography at the end.
