Type table legends as double-spaced paragraphs at the top of each table. Figure Legends: Group figure legends together on the page(s) preceding the figures; one paragraph per figure. Explain all panels in each figure (A), (B), ... Symbols used in the figure (e.g., circles, squares, ...) must be explained on the figure itself (i.e., not in the figure legend). No special symbols are allowed in the figure legend. Figures: Do not put figure legends on the figures. Put only "Fig. #." on the figure. Number figures with Arabic numerals in the order of their citation in the text. If panels of a figure are labeled (A, B, ...) use the same case when referring to these panels in the text (A, B, ..., not a, b,...). If a figure consists of multiple panels, put all panels on one page and repeat axes titles on each panel only if they are different. Put scale bars on the figure, NOT in the figure legend. Use the Times New Roman font for all text and numerals on figures. Font sizes size should be from 9 to 11 points. If mathematical or Greek symbols are not available in Times New Roman, use the Symbol font. Page layout: See page layout diagram . Submit figures at the intended print size. The L&scientific manuscript editing serviceO column width is 8.9 cm (3.5 in) and full page width is 18.4 cm (7.25 in). The maximum size for a figure is 18.4 x 23.2 cm (7.25 x 9.125 in). Make figures as simple as possible. For example, avoid grid lines and boxes around symbol definitions.

Maps must include latitude and longitude, an indication of compass direction, and a thin line as a border. All markings must be legible. Color figures: See detailed instructions . Web Appendices: L&O has never published appendices in the journal itself. But in 2003 (Volume 45, Issue 1) we began publishing electronic appendices. These are reviewed as rigorously as the paper they support and are copyrighted by ASLO. Their purpose is to make available material that cannot be printed (e.g., videos) or essential data such as a table that would take up too much space in the journal. The reviewers and the Associate Editor must agree that the material in a Web Appendix is essential to understanding the associated L&O paper; i.e., Web Appendices are not intended to be a way to archive raw data or to make an L&O article shorter. Since there are many people who still read the printed journal, we try to minimize the need to go the Web to obtain essential information. We therefore have a strict policy of not allowing Web Appendices to be used for materials such as simple graphs or short tables that could be printed in the journal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
