Graphs, images, and tables

Texts published in the Obrana a strategie journal can include tables, pictures, charts, or other objects to facilitate the reader's orientation and understanding of the author's statements. However, using an extensive amount of pictures can make the orientation more difficult, therefore, such elements should be used only as necessary.


When inserting tables, it is necessary to take into account the legibility of the content after the reduction to the B5 size. Tables should be simple, black and white, complete with concise and numbered description:

Table 9: Total numbers of designated persons


Figures, graphs and other objects

Figures, graphs or other images and objects should be attached as separate, clearly identified files (specially for the publication of the online version of the journal). It should be clearly and unambiguously stated in the text or on an appropriate place which illustration is to be inserted. All illustrations should be prepared in order not to lose the legibility after the reduction to the B5 size and black and white print (you can verify the legibility of black and white print by printing the image on a black and white printer or in greyscale). The optimal size of an image or other object for the online version is 550 pixels in width, the height is not explicitly limited. It is always necessary to cite the source. If the description of the image, graph, etc. does not form a whole clause, period should not be used. If the label text includes full clauses, period should be used. Each figure should be marked with a number and possibly a description. An example of a graph:

Figure 8: Share of NATO, EU and WTO in individual years
