For each page of a document, does the numbering of the footnotes start again at #1 or can it continue? For example: on page 1 of the document, I have footnotes 1 – 6. On page 2 of the document, do I start with footnote #7 or start all over at #1?
The numbering must be continuous. Hence, page 2 would include footnote #7. This being said, some authors start over the numbering whenever a new chapter begins.
Footnotes 1 – 6
Footnotes 1 – 13
Keep in mind that Ibid., Idem., loc.cit. and op.cit. terminologies cannot refer to footnotes that were included to previous chapters (if you decide to use a per chapter numbering method). On the other hand, you could decide to use continuous numbering from the start to the end of your document (that’s what I usually do). The ultimate decision is yours; both methods are acceptable.
