Is there a way to move all footnotes to the end of the document (after the thebibliography environment)?

  • And interesting counter-question here would be: why would you want to do that? I would like to suggest reading this in order to get a grip of what end- and footnotes are and when to prefer one over the other. Mar 20, 2017 at 14:33

You can use the endnotes package:




text\footnote{test footnote}




To add a horizontal rule below the "Notes" heading, you can redefine the \enoteheading command; for example, to obtain a rule of width equal to 0.5\textwidth you can add the following lines to the preamble (after loading endnotes):


Of course, feel free to change the vertical skips according to your needs.

  • Thanks Gonzalo, but how can I add a line below the "Notes"? May 16, 2012 at 22:42
  • @VahidDamanafshan a line of width rqual to the whole \textwidth or just undelining the word "Notes"? May 16, 2012 at 22:50
  • 0.5/textwidth please. May 16, 2012 at 22:56

    Do you know the difference between endnotes and pagenote (from the other answer)? Aug 1, 2013 at 22:03

The endnotes package hasn't been updated since 2003 (at this writing), and doesn't work well with the KOMA-Script classes. The enotez package is more reliable and easier to customize:




text\footnote{test footnote}

    Thank you for pointing out enotez, an excellent alternative to endnotes.

You may use the pagenote package:






Some text.\footnote{A footnote.}

\bibitem{A01} A bibitem.

  • pagenotes 2004-2009. endnotes 2002-2004, development resumed in 2018. enotez 2009-2022.
