Manuscript Preparation, Copyediting, and Proofreading

Q. I have to convert author-date references into notes and bibliography style for a publisher. The author has included a list of references at the end of each chapter, which I intend to retain. My problem is that every time I insert an endnote (in place of a text citation), I end up typing the details after the list of references, which looks kind of odd. Is that okay? Will the typesetter take care of it later? Please let me know.

A. The typesetters will do as they’re told. Ask your assigning editor whether you are responsible for making it clear or whether she will do that herself.
