  3. Figure preparation
    • Always save figures when the window is resized to smaller size so that the fonts are big enough in the resulting figure.
    • Also check the fonts in the figures of your paper.
    • Adjust the margins of the figure in par(), mar for example so that there won't be too much white space.
    • If you have plotted a figure using color, ask yourself whether you can do it without resorting to color.
