Place your footnote marker after the relevant punctuation in your text e.g. at the end of a sentence. Sometimes it may help your reader if you place the footnote marker directly after the word or phrase to which it relates, which is fine, but as a general rule place your footnote after the punctuation.

If the word or phrase to which the footnote marker relates is in brackets, put the footnote marker before the closing bracket.

Use a superscript number to indicate your footnote. 6
