Preparation of Figures

Upon submission of an article, authors are supposed to include all figures and tables in the WORD file of the manuscript. Figures and tables should not be submitted in separate files. All figures should be cited in the paper in a consecutive order. In addition to submitting figures within your final manuscript, figures should be submitted individually, separate from the manuscript upon request of the Editor or the peer-reviewers (especially concerning pictures of whole gels or microscope imaging data).

Preparation of Tables

Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Every table must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading. Vertical rules should not be used.


Corrected proofs must be returned to the publisher within 2-3 days of receipt. The publisher will do everything possible to ensure prompt publication. It will therefore be appreciated if the manuscripts and figures conform from the outset to the style of the journal.
