All tables must be numbered using roman numerals. Tables should always be cited in text in consecutive numeral order. For each table, please supply a table caption (title) explaining the components of the table. Identify any previously published material by giving the source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption. Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data) and included beneath the table body.

Artwork and Illustrations Guidelines
Supply all figures electronically. Name your figure files with “Fig” and the figure number, e.g., Fig1.eps.

Figure Lettering
To add lettering, it is best to use Arial. Keep lettering consistently sized throughout your final-sized artwork, usually about 8–10 pt.

Figure Numbering
All figures are to be numbered using roman numerals. Figures should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order. Figure parts should be denoted by lowercase letters (a, b, c, etc.). If an appendix appears in your article and it contains one or more figures, continue the consecutive numbering of the main text. Do not number the appendix figures, “A1, A2, A3, etc.” Figures in online appendices (Electronic Supplementary Material) should, however, be numbered separately.

Figure Captions
Each figure should have a concise caption describing accurately what the figure depicts. Include the captions in the text file of the manuscript, not in the figure file. Figure captions begin with the term Fig. in bold type, followed by the figure number, also in bold type. No punctuation is to be included after the number, nor is any punctuation to be placed at the end of the caption. Identify all elements found in the figure in the figure caption; and use boxes, circles, etc., as coordinate points in graphs. Identify previously published material by giving the source in the form of a reference citation at the end of the figure caption.

If you include figures that have already been published elsewhere you must obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format. Please be aware that some publishers do not grant electronic rights for free and that Chitkara University Publication will not be able to refund any costs that may have occurred to receive these permissions.
