Tables and Figures 1. Place tables and figures after the paragraph where they’re described. 2. Cite the source of the table and figure information with a “source line” at the bottom of the table or figure. Source lines are introduced by the word Source(s), followed by a colon, author’s last name and year of publication, followed by a comma, and the page number, ended with a period. 3. But the full information about the source should be included into the corresponding entry in Bibliography. 4. Every table should have a number and (a short and descriptive) title flush left on the line above the table. 5. Every figure should have a number and a caption flush left on the line below the figure. 6. Number tables and figures separately in the order you mention them in the text. 7. In the text, identify tables and figures by number (“in figure 3”) rather than by location (“below”). 8. Table titles, and figure captions, which should be single-spaced. Use the title case capitalization.
