Refer to this document for including Footnotes in your work.
In your paper, every time you summarise, paraphrase or quote from a source you need to provide an in-text citation. The in-text citation consists of the family name of the author/s, the year of publication and sometimes a page number. Page numbers must be included in the in-text citation when quoting directly.
