There are two types of material you can insert into your assignment: figures and tables.
A figure is a photo, image, map, graph, or chart.
A table is a table of information.
For a visual example of each, see the figure and table to the right.
The word figure should be abbreviated to Fig. Each figure should be assigned a figure number, starting with number 1 for the first figure used in the assignment. E.g., Fig. 1.
Images may not have a set title. If this is the case give a description of the image where you would normally put the title.
If you are searching for images on Google, after your search, click the Images tab > Tools > Usage Rights > Labeled for Reuse
Reproducing happens when you copy or recreate a photo, image, chart, graph, or table that is not your original creation.
If you refer to information from the photo, image, chart, graph, or table but do not reproduce it in your paper, create a citation both in-text and on your Works Cited list.
If the information is part of another format, for example a book, magazine article or website, cite the work it came from. For example if information came from a table in an article in National Geographic magazine, you would cite the entire magazine article.
Fig. X. Description of the figure from: citation for source figure was found in.
The caption for a figure begins with a description of the figure, then the complete Works Cited list citation for the source the figure was found in. For example, if it was found on a website, cite the website. If it was in a magazine article, cite the magazine article.
Label your figures starting at 1.
Information about the figure (the caption) is placed directly below the image in your assignment.
