HOW TO FOOTNOTE IN YOUR RESEARCH PAPER Whenever an outside source is used in your final research paper, you must provide a footnote . Please footnote at the bottom of the page (MS Word: Insert – Reference – Footnote – Bottom of Page). The formatting of the cite should follow the examples provided. Footnotes should be single-spaced. Be sure to include the page number of the source from which the info came in each footnote. The first time you cite to a source, use the long citation. Additional cites to that reference may use the short citation. Cases – Long Cite [Case Name] , [Volume] [Reporter] [1st Page of Case], [Page #] ([Court] [Year]). - Example: U.S. v. Clary , 34 F.3d 709, 710 (8th Cir. 1994). - Reporters are the books in which the cases are found. If accessing a case on the internet, the volume and reporter are typically at the beginning of the case. - U.S. Supreme Court cases do not need the court identified. o Example: Ozawa v. U.S. , 260 U.S. 178, 180 (1922).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
