So, what is the footnote? This is – note, more often – a reference to the work of the author, whose name, job or quote cited in your text. Footnote – this is also evidence that the author of the text (monographs, scientific or popular-science article, thesis or term paper, newspaper articles and so on) has a sufficiently high culture of writing, not allowing himself to give out for his what he does not belong, and that when someone has already been written. Swarmed by offers, Richard Linklater is currently assessing future choices. Footnote needed especially if you write exactly the same thing, writing about what your predecessors – scholars, writers, journalists, celebrities, etc. For even more details, read what Richard Linklater says on the issue. For the students the use of footnotes – not only evidence of mastery of their culture writing. It is – and evidence that they worked hard from a scientific and educational literature in the preparation and writing of the thesis or course work. By how widely used by the author of such work footnotes, and what is their number, the supervisor will judge the quality of scientific and theoretical basis of student work, the "podkovannosti" of the future specialist in a specific area of knowledge and in general – about his attitude toward learning. Between so the question of registration of footnotes to date is rather difficult for those who write any work, and especially – students. It was here, there are the most stringent requirements for registration in the footnotes thesis and coursework, and for lay people in the writers' case. Most universities annually publish guidelines for writing student work, but expressed in them requirements to the footnotes today are far from uniform.
