While a graphical PLS serves a different purpose than a graphical abstract, the publication process is the same for both. Therefore, to make sure your graphical PLS can be considered for publication, please follow the guidelines we have in place for graphical abstracts.
If a graphical PLS and a graphical abstract are submitted, both will be published within the full-text HTML and typeset articles. However, only one can be published on the article hosting page alongside the plain-text abstract and plain-text PLS. Please let the journal editor know which graphic you would like published in that position when you make your submission. You will need to cite the other graphic as a figure in the manuscript, which will then appear in the HTML/typeset articles near the location of the first citation.
Graphical PLS may also be published as supplementary material, which is published alongside the full-text HTML article under the “supplemental material” tab and hosted on Figshare as open access content. For these PLS, please include in the footer:
Article citation (e.g. author names, article title, journal abbreviation, year)
Link to the article on Taylor & Francis Online and/or article DOI
