Embarrassing History Paper Advice

Postby Silverdream » Mon Dec 02, 2013 3:49 am

When you're putting footnotes in a paper, are you supposed to only cite a source once per every page it's listed on or do you have to cite it for every quote?

For example, say this is all from the same source:

Colette is asexual. He once said "I have no sexual attraction to males or females whatsoever." In 2007, he killed his sensei in a duel and married a Jewish lawyer.

His quote is on page 45 of Scientific American, and the information (that's not public knowledge) about him marrying a Jewish lawyer and killing his sensei are on pages 59 and 60. On this page of my paper would I cite it once as: Scientific American no. 1 issue 10 1994: pages 45-60 or would I cite it multiple times, once for the quote and once for the unknown information?

What convention are you using, as I would think that would affect the answer to your question. I would assume MLA, since this is a history paper.

Repeat references is why Chicago Jesus invented ibid. In this case: Ibid., pp. 59-60.
