Frequently Asked Questions

Figures and Artworks

How do you format images, such as photographs and micrographs?

For best results, send all the images you wish to include as separate files at the highest resolution available to you. We regret that we do not alter color balance, brightness, or contrast out of ethical concerns.

What file types do you accept for figure formatting?

We are currently able to process the following file types:

• Any standard graphic format, such as .tif, .jpg, .png, .bmp, or .gif
• .doc, .docx (Microsoft Word)
• .ppt, .pptx (Microsoft PowerPoint)
• .xls, .xlsx (Microsoft Excel)
• .opj (Origin)
• .ai, .ait (Adobe Illustrator)
• .psd, .pdd (Adobe Photoshop)
• .eps (various programs)

If you store your material in some other file type, contact our experts for the best way to convert your material to .eps or .pdf files for export.

Manuscript Formatting

Will you shorten my manuscript?

This service package does not cover word reduction or any content supplementation. We at LetPub offer those services as part of our editing package.

What should I do if my journal has a problem with the formatting?

Please contact us if there are any problems with your formatted manuscript. If a journal mentions formatting as a problem, please send us all comments from the journal and the file that you sent to the journal.

What is the difference between formatting and editing?

The primary responsibility of our manuscript formatting team is to ensure that your manuscript text is consistent with journal guidelines. This includes layout, font, spacing, formatting of headings, citations and references, title page check, confirmation of word count, number of images, and reference number limits and noting overages, and a check to ensure appropriate placement of tables and figures, and that all required sections are present. Our formatting team does not provide language editing (correction of grammar, or word choice).

My manuscript contains tables. Are they included in the manuscript formatting service?

If you want us to format your tables, please consider ordering our Figure Formatting service that can help you prepare and format tables.

Journal Recommedation

Do you guarantee acceptance by one of the journals you recommend?

Our Journal Recommendation report is designed to provide useful information about journals that may be a good fit for your paper based on the content of your work. Acceptance by a journal will be determined entirely by the journal’s editorial staff, not LetPub. The LetPub Journal Recommendation service is journal-independent and will not communicate directly with journal Editors about your manuscript. We are here to support you throughout the publication process but cannot guarantee journal acceptance.
