Let the experts prepare your manuscript’s figures for publication.

They say ‘a picture is worth a thousand words.’ And the impact of your research is not limited to what you can express with words. Tables and figures such as graphs, photographs, illustrations, diagrams, and other visuals can play a significant role in effectively communicating your findings.

Our Approach

As you prepare your manuscript for submission to a scholarly journal, you will need to follow comprehensive guidelines for figures, making adjustments to the resolution, file type, size, colors, and font. You need to ensure that tables are formatted correctly according to journal specifications. You also want to be sure that your figures are as clear and legible as possible, and are properly prepared for publication.

Researchers who are experts in their fields are not necessarily experts with the software and design skills needed to perfect figures for publication. So ACS Authoring Services has developed Figure services designed especially for scientists who are preparing for this crucial step in the publication process. Our figure experts are published researchers who also are highly skilled in the creation of scientific figures. If you have existing tables or figure files that need to comply with journal guidelines, we can help!

Quality Guarantee

Our Figures service prepares your figures and tables to the exact specifications of the journal. 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 has 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 Services

Our Figures service generates publication-ready 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). The price for Figure services is a very simple $70 per figure, regardless of the number of panels, graphs, or images in each figure.
