I saw recently an article where footnotes were placed inside the text, after the paragraph in which they were referred to. So here it would be like this(1):
(1) Here's the footnote.
And here's the next paragraph of the text.
I must admit it was a novelty for me, but also a sort of eureka moment. I'd like to ask you two things:
1. What is this type of footnotes called?
2. What are your opinions on this solution (in particular, in a scientific text)?
