I usually prefer some sort of formal notes. But I don't care as long as all
the necessary information is there and accessible. In reading a paper,
footnotes are easier to follow as you read the text, however most publishers
want endnotes to ease the typesetting process. I'd say that if you're using
endnotes, start them on a separate page so that the reviewer can take them
out of the paper and set them alongside the text as he/she reads.
I usually use endnotes. If I have info other than bibliographical/citation
that needs a note, I usualkly go ahead and include it with the other
endnotes, sometimes in italic to make them easier to see.
