The basic tenet of the HRS is that you cite your source within the body of the text. Correct?
So, for example, after quoting a line from a book, I would type exactly (Bloggs, Joe, "The Meaning of Life", p.81). Correct?
But, what if I reference this book another half a dozen times? Must I do the same thing (with different page numbers, where appropriate) or can I, say, generate footnotes for all subsequent references to this book?
The reason I ask is simply that, when one is restricted to a word count for an essay, as I am, the HRS eats into that word count.
Footnotes do not interfere with the main body of the text and, in my opinion, look far better on the page. But, the HRS seems to be what is required by many academic institutions.
