Abstract

A large number of papers have appeared recently assessing the effects of using tables and graphs in scientific publications. In this brief communication we assess some of the methodological difficulties that have arisen in this context. These difficulties encompass issues of data availability, suitability of indicators, nature and purpose of tables and graphs, and the role of supplementary information.
