Illustrations in Industrial Data are called Figures and Tables. The journal publishes figures (graphs, photos, maps, schemes, etc.). Only original figures (created by the author) of high quality and resolution shall be accepted. The term “table” includes charts, lists, catalogs, inventories, and schematics.

The International System of Units (SI) should be used.

The decimal point should be used. For ease of reading, numbers may be divided into groups of three figures, which will not be separated by points or commas. This division in groups does not apply to numbers of four figures representing a year. Tables and Figures must be supplied in their native formats, that is to say, in an editable format, rather than in an image file.


Quotation in the text should follow the author-date system of APA Style.
