Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Figure Format

Please submit figures and images in any of the following formats:

  • TIFF (Tagged Image Format)

  • JPEG

  • PDF (Portable Document Format)

  • Postscript

  • EPS (Encapsulated Post Script)

GIF and PICT formats should not be used because their resolution is too low for adequate print quality.

Please submit figures only in grayscale or CMYK color. Figures not intended to be printed as color must contain only grayscale graphics. We cannot accept RGB files for color figures.

Please size the artwork according to the ratio at which you expect it to be reproduced for publication. Is there a standard? If so we should mention it here. (You may wish to use the printed journal column width as a guide.) Do not embed tables and figures in the text of the manuscript with your word processing software. Images from PowerPoint are not usually production quality, as their resolution is too low for print. Figures must meet the minimum resolution standards in the chart below to reproduce well in print.

Graphs and line illustrations (black and white) 600 dpi
Photographs/halftones (grayscale) 300 dpi minimum
Color illustrations in split CMYK 400 dpi
