Step 1:

When adding or editing a citation, scroll down on the citation form to the "Annotation" box.

Step 2:

Type your annotation. 

Important note: The annotation is auto-saved as you type if you are editing an existing citation. Since the annotation does not auto-save when you are creating a new citation, you may want to create the citation first and then edit it to add your annotation, if you are planning to spend more time writing a long annotation. To view or revert to earlier saved versions of an annotation, click the Manage versions toggle at the lower-right corner of the "Annotation" field.

Step 3:

Click Save to save both your citation and its annotation.
