Preparing Figures for Journal Articles (end)


Submission of Figures

During the production process, the figures follow a different path from the text and tables. To move your manuscript through a complex process efficiently and to assist quality control, we ask that you submit your figures according to the guidelines below. Most importantly, however, do not embed the figures in the text of your manuscript.

Submitting Electronic Files for Figures

Electronic figures should be submitted in two ways.

  • Each figure should be submitted as a separate file, named clearly (for example fig1.tiff, fig 2a.tiff, fig 2b.eps, etc.) and in an appropriate file format (EPS, TIFF, PDF, PS). These files are due with your final manuscript.
  • Word file containing the figure captions, notes, and source information should be prepared and submitted with the text and tables of your manuscript.
