Our Table Formatting service produces properly formatted tables that adhere to your target journal's guidelines.

How to get the best results from our figure services

Learn more about Figure Formatting

Provide editable files for tables, graphs, or diagrams

Please provide all figures in the original file type they were created in (such as .xlsx or .pptx) or in an editable/vector format (such as .eps or .pdf). You may need to export data from your analysis software rather than saving as an image.

Provide the highest-resolution images available

Original image files may be in .tif, .jpg, or .png format. These files should never be embedded in Word or PowerPoint documents, as that will reduce their quality.

Let us know your target journal

Our experts will use your target journal’s specific guidelines to format your figures to their exact requirements.

Consider the size restrictions of your chosen journal

It is best to plan for your illustration to fit onto one page of a print journal. If you include too many elements in a single illustration, your order may be delayed while we ask you to decide how to divide it into two or more illustrations.

Please only upload figures or tables that require formatting

Please upload only the figures you would like our team to format. For example, if you include ten figures and two tables but only order formatting for three items, your order may be delayed while we clarify which items you wish to have formatted. You may also leave a note on your order to let us know which figures and/or tables to format.

Three AJE partners

“My editor was fantastic. Since I am an international student, I needed help with wordiness, verb use and awkward sentences. Without changing my idea, the editor suggested correction and indicated where revision was necessary. He also offered better use of words suitable to academic papers. Very recommended.”

"I am very pleased with AJE's English editing service. I have used this service in all my publications, and I am excited to use it again. I can say that AJE's work is critical because the review identifies errors that are not obvious to those who have English as a second language. The team is accessible throughout the review process, has a high level of technicality and professionalism, so I acknowledge AJE's merit for significantly improving the quality of my manuscripts. I highly recommend their services"
