Citation, Documentation of Sources

Q. I have read in your style guide that it is incorrect to have more than one footnote number attached to a piece of text (e.g., piece of text2, 3, 4) so that footnotes 2, 3, and 4 all contain one citation each. Instead should all three citations be included under one footnote number, and that footnote number be attached to the piece of text?

A. That’s right. You can put as many citations as you want into a single note. Use as many as it takes to cite all your sources for that piece of text.
