I am writing a paper using the apa6 package. I have been asked to place all of the footnotes on a separate page after the reference list. This is indeed the style that sample manuscripts in the APA's Publication Manual (6th edition) follow. In the apa6 class, however, footnotes are placed at the bottom of the page by default rather than at the end of the manuscript. Is there a way to move all the footnotes to a separate page after the reference list? The apa class that is no longer maintained apparently placed all the footnotes on a separate page, and I'm wondering if I can do something similar with the apa6.

\documentclass[man, a4paper, 12pt]{apa6}
\title{Title}
\author{Author}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
Main body.\footnote{footnote}
\end{document}

Just use the endnotes package:

\documentclass[man, a4paper, 12pt]{apa6}

\usepackage{endnotes}

\usepackage{kantlipsum} % for mock text

\let\footnote\endnote

\title{Title}
\author{Author}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
Main body.\footnote{footnote}

X\footnote{Abc} \kant[1]

X\footnote{Abc} \kant[2]

X\footnote{Abc} \kant[3]

\clearpage
\theendnotes

\end{document}

If the footnotes should still resembles the traditional footnotes, but just on a separate page at the end of the document, you can capture each \footnote and replace it with a combination \footnotemark and delayed \footnotetext.

enter image description here

\documentclass[man]{apa6}
\usepackage[nopar]{lipsum}% Just for this example

\let\oldfootnote\footnote
\renewcommand{\footnote}[1]{%
  \footnotemark% Leave a footnote mark and ...
  \AtEndDocument{\footnotetext{#1}}% Store \footnotetext for end-of-document
}
\let\oldfootnotetext\footnotetext
\renewcommand{\footnotetext}{\stepcounter{footnote}\oldfootnotetext}
\AtEndDocument{%
  \clearpage% Clear the page
  \setcounter{footnote}{0}% Reset the footnote counter
}

\title{Title}
\author{Author}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\lipsum[1]\footnote{First footnote.}

\lipsum[2]\footnote{Second footnote.}

\lipsum[3]\footnote{Third footnote.}

\lipsum[4]\footnote{Fourth footnote.}

\lipsum[5]\footnote{Fifth footnote.}

\lipsum[6]\footnote{Sixth footnote.}

\lipsum[7]\footnote{Seventh footnote.}

\lipsum[8]\footnote{Eighth footnote.}

\lipsum[9]\footnote{Ninth footnote.}

\lipsum[10]\footnote{Tenth footnote.}

\end{document}
