Section 10.6.1

General Structure

Each reference in the text is followed by a consecutive raised(superscript) number, which refers to a note placed on a separatesheet at the end of the text. (Turabian and some specific styles,however, prefer footnotes, which are placed at the bottom of eachpage.) For the note numbers in the text, use superscript numbers, which are easily generated byalmost all common word processing programs.

In contrast to all the other documentation systems mentioned, CMS style requires a separate endnote for each citation of a source. In addition, CMS style recommends that long documents also include an alphabetized bibliography, which contains the same information as the notes but ina different format.
