I would like to submit my manuscript in ecology, containing Figures. However, in Author guidelines, I found that I have to

Indicate per figure if it is a single, 1.5 or 2-column fitting image.

What are those measures? In another journals I found (http://www.pitt.edu/~mcs2/teaching/biocomp/tutorials/journal_req.html):

  • single column width (21 picas, 8.9 cm, 3.5 inches),
  • a 1.5-column width (30 picas, 12.7 cm, 5 inches)
  • a full two-column width (43 picas, 18.2 cm, 7.2 inches)

Are those measures the same for every journal? Does it also mean, that in my paper I can use only 3 types of figures' widths, nothing between e.g. width of 6 inches?

Thanks !

OK, I finally found it. It seems to vary by journal.

Here are ones related to publication of artwork (figures and plots) for Elsevier:
