Authors are to embed any graphics, charts, images, and non-text elements into the initial manuscript for peer reviewers to see. However, upon acceptance of the manuscript for editing and design, all graphics must be submitted in their native file format and must be uploaded to the FastTrack system under the submission ID of the manuscript.

Submit photos and graphics as separate, high resolution electronic files in .gif, .jpeg, .eps, .tif, .ai, or .png formats. Graphic and photographic files should have a resolution of 300 dpi or greater. The image size should be as large, or larger, than it is expected to be in the designed document. Graphics should be in the colors desired in the final document: if images are to be black and white, provide them as such. Color photos, graphics, tables, charts, etc., must be CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) format.

Do not add text such as captions, names of people, etc., to image files. Please provide captions in a separate Word document.
