Illustrations/images etc.

When including a figure or a table from another source in your work, it is important to include appropriate citations.

1. Figures are illustrations/images such as graphs, charts, diagrams, maps, drawings, photographs etc.

2. Tables are data presented in rows and columns.

Each figure, graph and table should have:

- A number according to the order in which it appears (e.g. Chart 1, Chart 2, Figure 1, Figure 2, Table 1, Table 2)

- A meaningful title so your reader understands straightaway what the data is about. Titles should be located above tables but below figures and charts
