Electronic illustrations must be in TIFF format. Do not embed images into other software programs (e.g., a word processing program). Note we do not accept Excel or PowerPoint files. Image files should be named appropriately, including the number of the figure (e.g., Figure1.tif, Figure2.eps, etc.). When using a digital camera to create your images, we recommend, if possible, that you set the camera to save in TIFF format (not JPEG), set the resolution to a minimum of 300 ppi (pixels per inch), and set the size of the image to 5 × 7 in (127 × 178 mm). The resolution of your electronic images is critical and is directly linked to how well they will appear when printed.
