I have searched around a lot but have not been able to find an answer. How do I put all the footnotes into a separate page in LaTeX/Lyx? I need to place them after the references page.

Also see the LyX module "Endnote" in Document Settings > Modules – scottkosty Nov 18 '12 at 12:43
Thanks for this. I end up using \let\footnote=\endnote for current paper, but I am sure LyX module will be useful in the future. – joon Nov 18 '12 at 16:30

You can use the endnotes package. endnotes uses \endnote instead of \footnote, and endnotes are printed with the \theendnotes command. Eventually one can use


To redefine footnotes as endnotes.


Endnotes are printed a section: The endnotes name (i.e., the title of the section is controlled by) \notesnames. It is possible to change it using or removing it:


The other related instruction is


that defines the instructions to treat endnotes as a starred section (i.e., \section*{\notesname}) and the heading marks.

Thanks a lot. That was what I was looking for. May I ask you if you know how to modify or hide "Notes" section header \theendnotes automatically generates? – joon Nov 18 '12 at 16:29
