Adding footnotes, endnotes or references

We follow the Australian Government's Style ManualExternal Link for footnotes, endnotes or references.

For example, add the number to the sentence in Superscript format where required:

Victoria Police can issue family violence safety notices to a perpetrator to offer immediate protection to a victim survivor and can apply to the Magistrates Court for a family violence intervention order. Victoria Police practice guidance is clear that such notices and orders "must be strictly enforced…and police must lay charges for any contravention".119 It acknowledges that "a lack of attention conveys to the [perpetrator] and the [victim survivor] that the order is not taken seriously" and could risk the family's safety.

At the end of your chapter or content page:

  1. add a Heading 2 titled 'Footnotes', 'Endnotes' or 'References'
