We encourage authors to consult The Elements of Style by Strunk & White prior to submitting their text.

Footnotes

Footnotes should be kept to a minimum. They should not be used for references, but for explanation and expansion of argument where appropriate. Footnotes reference numbers should appear as consecutive Arabic numerals and must be embedded in the text (so that any footnote additions or deletions will automatically change all the footnote changes throughout the paper). Footnotes should be placed after punctuation.

References
