I understand how to write the footnote page but, in my paper, where do I write the number? For example:
“Predictions about which students will do better academically or socially in which setting are highly fallible (6)”.
Does the (6) go after the period or before?
Thank you for your help.
The number must always be included before the period, never after, and must ideally appear at the end of your statement.
Here is an example :
“The international comparisons present the main statistical indicators of more than 230 countries and territories, grouped by theme: population and income, labour force and prices, gross domestic product, international trade and investments, education and communication, health”1.
