JCF Graphic Standards Style Guide for Authors

The JCF Graphic Standards Style Guide provides general guidance to authors publishing with JCF on how best to present their figures and tables in their submissions. Consistent application by authors to these recommendations will allow for the best presentation of the authors’ work when published and in various distribution channels, such as social media posts and meeting presentations. 

The guide covers topics such as font types and sizes, color pallets, and best practices for graphs and tables. 

It is not required for figures and tables to meet the Style Guide standards upon initial submission. Authors will be asked to put their figures and tables into the appropriate format upon revision to the best of their abilities.
