Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer

About the Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer

The Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer enables authors to include MATLAB figures with their articles. These figures contain experimental data, numerical results, visualizations through models, or other kinds of visual research output based on data.

The Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer provides authors and readers with many benefits. It:

  • Enables authors to include MATLAB figures with their articles
  • Enables readers to view a figure at maximum accuracy at all levels of zoom and from all viewpoints
  • Enables readers to download the data for validation or re-use, if they have MATLAB installed

The Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer makes use of MATLAB, a software program developed by The MathWorks, Inc.

Unfortunately, due to technical issues, MATLAB Viewers are currently not displaying in with articles on ScienceDirect. MATLAB figures can still be accepted and will be stored with articles to display as soon as the Viewer is back in operation.

Preparing

The Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer makes use of files in the FIG format. To create a FIG file for the Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer, you will need the MATLAB software, which is made by The MathWorks, Inc.

The Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer puts some limitations on FIG files. For example, it does not support GUI elements such as buttons that require user input. For more information about creating FIG files with MATLAB, please visit the MathWorks website.

Please note: this application incorporates software elements provided by The MathWorks, Inc., which Elsevier does not own. If you have any questions about these elements, please contact The MathWorks, Inc directly at 3 Apple Hill Drive, Natick, MA 01760-2098, UNITED STATES.

Previewing

The Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer puts some limitations to FIG files, so it’s essential to verify how your files will display online using the online validation tool (beta version).

Submitting

Please submit your file along with your manuscript. In the editorial system, in the dropdown menu, please indicate that this is a file for the Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer.

In your manuscript, you can indicate where you want the material to appear in the article, for example, by writing ‘File1.fig here’.


Reviewer Instructions

Reviewers will find CSV files associated with Interactive Plots in the supplementary material submitted with the manuscript. Reviewers can use the online validation tool (beta version) to inspect Interactive MATLAB Figure Viewer files during the review process.

  • EES: the files can be downloaded via links on the final pages of the reviewer PDF
  • EVISE: the files can be downloaded directly from the system
