    I have a question regarding a expression that is very often present in footnotes.
    When we are informed to see other chapters, books, etc. about a subject, which is the correct expression: see also or also see ?
    e.g.: See also Parker, John. The theory and ....
    Also see Parker, John. The theory and ....
    Thank you in advance!

    "See also..." is correct, as is "You can also see" and "Also, see..." but not "Also see...".

    If your referring to in-text citations, ''See also'' is correct; e.g., The author argued that overconsumption will lead to negative far-reaching consequences (Smith, 2008; see also, Denver, 2009).

    Thank you very much for your answers!
    It is more clear for me now.
