Table Number: Use Arabic numerals to number all tables that are within your text (i.e., not in the appendix) for example, Table 1, Table 2 and Table 3. Tables should be numbered in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. The table number appears above the table in bold font.
Figure Number: Use Arabic numerals to number all figures that are within your text (i.e., not in the appendix) for example, Figure 1, Figure 2 and Figure 3. Figures should be numbered in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. The figure number appears above the figure in bold font.
Figure Titles: The title should be concise, clear, and explanatory and appears one double-spaced line below the figure number in italic title case.
Image: The image portion of the figure is the chart, graph, photo, or other illustration.
Legend: If there is a legend or key, it should be positioned within the border of the figure and it should explain the symbols used in the image
Figure notes: There are three types of notes that can appear below the figure as needed to describe the contents of the figure that are not easily understood in the title or body (e.g., definitions of abbreviations, copyright information). Not all tables may require notes.
A general note qualifies, explains, or provides information relating to the table as a whole and ends with an explanation of any abbreviations, symbols, and the like.
A specific note refers to a particular column, row, or cell. It is indicated by superscripts lowercase letters (eg., a, b, c).
A probability note indicates how asterisks and other symbols are used in a table to indicate p values and thus the results of tests of statistical hypothesis testing.
