Each table should be numbered and cited in sequence using Arabic numerals (i.e. Table 1, 2, 3 etc.). Tables should have a title (above the table) summarizing the entire table. Legends may be detailed but must be concise. Tables should always be cited in the manuscript text in consecutive numerical order.
Large datasets or tables too wide for a portrait page can be uploaded separately as additional files. Tabular data provided as additional files can be uploaded as an Excel spreadsheet (.xlsx/xls).
Smaller tables considered to be integral to the manuscript can be pasted into the end of the document text file. These will be typeset and displayed in the final published form of the article. Such tables should be formatted using the 'Table object' in a word processing program to ensure that columns of data are kept aligned when the file is sent electronically for review. This will not always be the case if columns are generated by simply using tabs to separate text. Columns and rows of data should be made visibly distinct by ensuring that the borders of each cell display as black lines. Color and shading may be used and table sections may be highlighted to identify headers/sub headers.
