Our figure experts are published researchers who are highly skilled in the creation of scientific and academic figures. Whether you have existing figure files that need to comply with journal guidelines, or you want to create brand new illustrations, graphical abstracts, or short animations, we can help!
Price: US$70 per figure, regardless of the number of panels, graphs, or images it contains
Our Figure Formatting service generates high-quality figures from your files that conform to your chosen journal’s specifications. This includes changes to file type, resolution, color space, font, scale, line weights, and layout (to improve readability and professional appearance).
To use this service, simply assemble your figures in Microsoft PowerPoint or Word (copy-pasting in your Excel graphs) and upload this file along with the name of the journal that you are submitting your manuscript to. We take care of the rest! Of course, we also accept many other file formats
In addition to formatting your existing figures, we can also assist you by generating original illustrations based on sketches, re-drawing low-resolution diagrams and flowcharts to generate publication quality figures, or creating graphs from data tables. Our illustrators work directly with authors to help you turn your ideas and data into figures that will help you communicate your research to the world, be it in print, posters, or presentations.
We guarantee that the formatted figures and tables that you receive will meet the stated specifications of the journal that you selected. If the journal does have any issues with the preparation of your figures or tables, we will resolve those issues for free. In addition, if you are dissatisfied with any aspect of the appearance of your formatted figures, we will work with you until you are happy with the presentation of your data.
Our Illustration & Graphing Service provides you with original illustrations, graphs, and diagrams based on your ideas. This process is inherently iterative, and we guarantee to continue to adjust the illustration, graph, or diagram until you are happy with the presentation of your data or ideas.
Please contact us if there are any problems with your figure or table. If a journal mentions a problem with the formatting of your figures or tables, please include the files that you sent to the journal and all the comments from the journal.
We are currently able to process the following file types:
File types that are not on this list should be exported as .eps or .pdf files. If you use alternative software, we can also advise you on the best procedure to export figures in one of our recommended file types.
