Footnotes are a Wikipedia specific manner of including sources and should
not be confused with the general concept of footnotes. This how-to does not
cover the formatting of citations.

Footnotes are used most commonly to provide references (bibliographic
citations) to reliable sources in articles, explanatory information, and
source information for tables and other elements. The use of Footnotes is
not required by any policy or guideline, and other systems of inline

be used at the editors' discretion in accordance with the guideline on

have an inline citation to a reliable source. There is no requirement to
provide a citation for every sentence, because multiple sentences may be
supported by the same footnote. For advice on which material should be
cited, see the guidelines on when you must use inline citations, the good

bibliographic citations to reliable sources, see the guideline on citing
sources and examples of citation templates.
