So you want to write an ANR Publication . . .

Question

How do I submit photographs for an ANR publication?

Answer

We prefer digital files but will scan slides if necessary. Submit each digital photo in a separate file (not in a Word or Powerpoint file). When naming the files, include the figure number and a key word describing the photo in the name.

RAW format is best, TIFF and EPS are acceptable. JPEG files over 3 mb are acceptable for print; files under 3 mb are good enough only for online publications. JPEG files under 1 mb are usually not acceptable even for online publications.

Make sure each photo has a callout in the text of your publication, as in “(fig.1).” Also make sure that you have obtained permission to publish photos that require permission.

Along with the photos, submit a Word document that contains the captions for all photos. Each photo must have a caption; the caption should contain the figure number, the name of the photographer or source credit, and the digital filename. A thumbnail of the photo is very helpful.

You can send digital photo files to us on a CD or DVD, or, if you have only a few files, compress them into one file and put them on the CS FileVault for Ann Senuta (aesenuta@ucdavis.edu) (see the FileVault page at http://ucanr.org/filevault/).

Please note that we will not begin work on your publication until all photos and required permissions have been received.
