Most academic publishers require endnotes as opposed to footnotes. They are not available in the Word for IPad and that is a significant deficit.
Thank you for your feedback. We’re pleased to announce that Word on iOS now supports both Footnotes and Endnotes.
John Harris commented
Endnotes are really important, now required by most publishers. Most academics and non-fiction writers are choosing or upgrading their writing app at the moment and the lack of an endnote is a serious deficiency.
I for one am going to have to find another way.
