Tables and Figures


Tables and figures should follow immediately after first mention in the text or on the next
page. If they are placed on the next page ,continue the text to the bottom of the preceding
page do not leave a space (gap) on the page where the tables or figure was first
mentioned.
Figures must look professional. Hand lettering is not acceptable unless executed by a
professional draftsperson .Any diagram, growing graph chart, map, photograph, or other
type of illustration must be presented in research project as a figure.
Broadside Tables and Figures
In order to fit large tables or figures on a page, it is sometimes necessary to place them
broadside. The binding margin for such a table or figure must be inches and research
project must be written in English.

All other margins must be 1 inch. The top margin and page number location must be the
same as on a regular page.
Numbering of Tables and Figures:
Numbering of tables and figures should be consecutive throughout the entire research
project or within each chapter, including those in the appendix. if the tables and figures
are to be numbered consecutively within each chapter, the chapter number should appear
along with the table or figure number (e.g., 1.1,1.2 (for chapter 1) ; 2.1, 2.2 (for chapter
2) (see appendix D). the number and title of a table should be placed above the table.
tables and figures are numbered separately.
Computer Output:
Computer output, including pen plotting and screen plotting, is acceptable provided the
material is dark, clear, readable copy transferred to acceptable paper. if the material is
tabular ,room must be left at the top for the table number, caption, appropriate lines, and
columnar headings unless the entire table is to be printed by the computer printout
machine.
Supplementary:
Reference of Bibliography:
The style for references should follow the format given on next page. The style used must
be consistent throughout research project. There are many good sources that may be
consulted for certain fields or to solve special problems. Advisors and committee
members usually have excellent references to suggest.
Appendices:
Quality and format should be consistent with requirements for other parts of the research
project including margins and reproduction. Computer printout must conform to margins.
Reductions must be clear and readable. Appendices may be treated in a fashion parallel
to that of chapters .that is, the first page of an appendix would have a one inch top margin
and begin with a title e.g., Appendix I,
Appendix: Diagrams.
Alternatively, an appendix may be introduced with a cover page bearing only the title. the
content of the appendix then begins on the second page with the standard one-inch
margin.
