ARTWORK AND ILLUSTRATIONS

Line Art

  • Black and white graphic with no shading
  • Do not use faint lines and/or lettering and check that all lines and lettering within the figures are legible at final size
  • All lines should be at least 0.1mm (0.3pt) wide.
  • Scanned line drawings and line drawings in bitmap format should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.

Halftone Art

  • Photographs, drawings, or paintings with fine shading, etc.
  • Halftones should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.

Color Art

  • Color art is free of charge for online publication.
  • In the print version, it will be shown in black and white, so make sure that the main information will still be visible. Many colors are not distinguishable from one another when converted to black and white. A simple way to check this is to make a xerographic copy to see if the necessary distinctions between the different colors are still apparent.
  • Do not refer to color in the captions, since the figures will be printed in black and white.
  • Color illustrations should be submitted as RGB (8 bits per channel).

Figure Lettering

  • To add lettering, it is best to use Arial (sans serif fonts).
  • Keep lettering consistently sized throughout your final-sized artwork, usually about 2–3 mm (8–12 pt).
  • Variance of type size within an illustration should be minimal, e.g., do not use 8-pt type on an axis and 20-pt type for the axis label.
  • Avoid effects such as shading, outline letters, etc.
  • Do not include titles or captions within your illustrations.

Figure Numbering

  • All figures are to be numbered using Arabic numerals. Example: Fig. 1Fig. 2,........
  • Figures should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order. Example: In Fig. 1, the values of ...
  • Figure parts should be denoted by lowercase letters (a, b, c, etc.). Example: Fig. 1: The motion of a parcel of air as it flows across (a) mountain (b) hill
  • If an appendix appears in your article and it contains one or more figures, continue the consecutive numbering of the main text. Do not number the appendix figures separately.

Figure Captions

  • Each figure should have a concise caption describing accurately what the figure depicts. Include the captions in the text file of the manuscript, not in the figure file.
  • Figure captions begin with the term Fig. in bold type, followed by the figure number, also in bold type.

Example : Fig. 5:

No punctuation is to be included after the number, nor is any punctuation to be placed at the end of the caption.

Identify previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference citation at the end of the figure caption.

Example: Fig. 1: The motion of a parcel of air as it flows across (a) mountain (b) hill [8]

Figure Placement and Size

  • Figures should placed in the text when submitted.
  • The figures should not be higher than 174 mm wide.

For editors and reviewers to accurately assess the work presented in your manuscript, you need to ensure the English language is of sufficient quality to be understood. If your manuscript is accepted it will be checked by our copyeditor for spelling and formal style before publication.
