The Dryden Publications Manual
Guidelines for Submittng Text and Research Report Art (RAA)
The preferred software for the report text is Microsoft Word for the Macintosh or Microsoft Word 6.0 for the PC. ASCII text is also acceptable.
Generally, figures in formal reports are printed in black and white. Color figures may be used only if data cannot be presented clearly and concisely in black and white. (For questions concerning the use of color contact Camilla McArthur at x2041.) Figures should be submitted electronically and on paper.
Currently, Graphics supports the following software and formats for figures:
*Note: figures form these programs shold be saved as PICT files
Most figures created with other software or in other formats can be accommodated. Contact Steve Lighthill x3940 with questions about electronic figures.
Photographs Electronically scanned photographs may be submitted. They should be saved as grayscale EPS files with a halftone screen of 85 lpi. (Please include the EC (photo)# in the file name.)
Figures From Another DFRC Report
Figures from another DFRC report can be used, please make sure you have the RRA# from the bottom right of the figure so the original electronic version can be retrieved from the archives.
Figure Specifications Authors may submit reports with art they have created to the Technical Publications Office. Certain categories of papers may allow the use of author generated art without going through the Graphics office provided they meet the minimum standards addressed below. (For clarification of paper categories contact Camilla McArthur at x2041.) These specifications are for the final figures and after any size reduction.
Maximum figure sizes for a double column paper are as follows: Samples are shown in fig. 1 and 2.
For a paper with a single column format, the maximum figure size is 8 1/4 in. long by 6 7/8 in. wide. (Typically, papers are double column.)
Transfer of Electronic Files
UNIX Research Report Art
XPLOT and QuickPlot files can be transferred to Macintosh diskette using the following procedure.
On opening, the plot shows as an 'X' in the area where the plot is positioned. You can reposition but not edit the plot; the plot is printed on a print command.
