The 'visual presentation of data' includes information such as: tables, figures, graphs, clinical imaging, photographs, illustrations, and maps.
In Chapter 4 of the AMA Manual, you will find information on:
- How to format tables, figures, line graphs, survival plots, scatterplots, bar graphs, pie charts, diagrams, etc., with examples!
Tables/Figures/Graphs, etc., from other sources:
- It is best practice to contact the creator or copyright holder of any table, figure, graph, photograph, illustration, etc., for permission to use it before you incorporate it into your work. Even after obtaining permission, you must still properly cite the source.
- This is especially true once you leave University. You may end up presenting at a conference, or publishing a research article, and any tables, graphs, figures, images, etc. you wish to use or reprint from other sources must be properly cited and permission MUST be sought from the copyright holder(s).
