Figures and Tables

  • All figures appearing in work must be numbered in the order that they appear in the text.
  • Each figure must have a caption fully explaining the content
  • Figure captions are presented as a paragraph starting with the figure number i.e. Fig. 1.
  • Figure captions appear below the figure
  • Each figure must be fully cited if taken from another work
  • all figures must be referred to in the body of the work
  • For Example:
Fig.1. Illustration of a discrete basis set G, computed for an ill-posed
thermal wave inverse problem @continuous kernel given in Section III B 1,
Eqs. ~65!–~66!#. The index i increments source depth x0 as per x05iDx,
with Dx54 mm, a medium of assumed diffusivity a, of 1.0 m
31027 m2/s and observation at x54 mm just inside the sample surface. J.F.Pover, Rev. Sci. Instrum. 73, 4057 (2002); doi: 10.1063/1.1517054
  • Material that is tabular in nature must appear in a numbered captioned table.
  • All tables appearing in work must be numbered in the order that they appear in the text.
  • Each table must have a caption fully explaining the content with the table number i.e. Table 1.
  • Each column must have a clear and concise heading
  • Tables are to be presented with a double horizontal line under the table caption, a single horizontal line under the column headings and double horizontal lines at the end of the table
  • All tables must be referred to in the body of the work
  • Each table must be fully cited if taken from another work

For Example:


TABLE I. The properties of common semiconductor materials. H in 6H-SiC denotes hexagonal, C in 3C denotes cubic. Z. Chen and V.G. Harris, J. Appl. Phys. 112, 081101 (2012); doi: 10.1063/1.4739219
