Tables and Figures

Guidelines for submitting artwork, figures and other graphics

If you submit appropriate color figures, these figures will appear in color on the online version of the JOMELA. If a charge applies you will be duly contacted by the Journal.

Tables should be provided (double line-spaced) on separate sheets and their position indicated by note or markers in the appropriate position in the main text. Further to this, all tables must have short descriptions below the tables.

Illustrations

All line diagrams and photographs should be labeled as ‘Figures’ (1, 2, 3 etc) in the manuscript, thus numbered sequentially and consecutively. Line diagrams should be presented as complete, and hence in a form suitable for immediate reproduction, at times when the Journal can not reproduce these. However, should authors require that the Journal reproduce these Figures, the journal may charge a fee for each item.

Submitted illustrations should be of an adequate resolution, that is, at least 300 DPI. Illustrations should be supplied as TIFF, EPS, or JPG files at this high resolution. Similarly, photographs should be submitted as high quality.

Authors must include relevant descriptive captions on a separate sheet, for each illustrative item.

Rendering

All documents must be provided in either Ms Word or any similar editable document type.

Grammar and Punctuation

Authors must do their best to correct all grammar, typography, and punctuation. The GLOCAL editors will ensure that all text is edited following submission. However, uneditable texts will be returned to authors for revision and subsequent resubmission. Some editing will be provided, so as to increase the readability of the text.

Titles, Keywords, Abstracts

The title, keywords, and abstract should significantly assist readers to locate the article through search engines. Please consider effective wording and selections so to strengthen these items.
