Style Sheet for Notes and References for Ṛtambharā
Simplicity, beauty, freedom and complete information are the hallmarks of a good documentation in noting and referencing. Keeping all these aspects intact the Ṛtambharā adopts simple Endnote format with a little customization for the better look and use. Authors can use Endnote option of the Microsoft Word or any Word Processing Software for providing Notes and References in a single sequence using the number format of 1, 2, 3,… instead of the format of i, ii, iii,… . The notes and matters of reference are supposed to be kept (as these automatically appear) after the end of the main text (and acknowledgement) under a marked heading NOTES AND REFERENCES.
The Endnote system is easy. It avoids repetition as well as annoyance of intext referencing, and conserves space, while at the same time it provides liberty to the author and all necessary information to the reader.
The author may have additional or related or illuminating information or clarification or remark on any point, but could not provide there in the main text/theme as it would digress from the main theme or the flow of discussion. The same can be mentioned as note. It can be inserted as one EndNote Item in the same sequence of references.
