Figures: All figures and tables must be submitted on separate pages with only one item per page and, if ever possible as electronic files (Windows, PC). The name of the author together with the figure number must be written on the reverse side of each figure page. For every figure short and precise legends (headline/footnote) have to be included. The top of a figure must be indicated. Figures and tables should have a line weight and lettering suitable for reduction to the type area of 16,5 x 22,5 cm or less.

Fast Track publication (Pre-Print-Publication)
Since 2010 manuscripts that are ready to be printed (e.g. accepted by the editors, composed and the proofs checked by the authors) are made available online prior to publication. Title and abstracts as well as authors names will be accessible by all visitors of the NJB online version. Full text will be available for online journal subscribers. Papers will have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) assigned and may be cited. This new service will give the opportunity to have articles available well in advance of their actual printed publication date.
A special Fast Track Articles table of contents will be accessible on the journals online website (Ingenta). As soon as an article is published in print, it will be automatically removed from the Fast Track TOC.
