Visual Abstracts

The Journal of Headache and Pain strongly encourages authors to submit a visual abstract.

A visual abstract is a figure that clearly and succinctly conveys the main message of your research (paper). The goal of a visual abstract is to attract readers' attention to the article and encourage them to read the whole paper, but also promote interdisciplinary scholarship and help readers quickly identify which papers are most relevant to their research interests. This will appear underneath to the Abstract on the website. See an example here below.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: The visual abstract image should be 920x300 pixels and a maximum of 150KB, and should be submitted alongside your contribution as a supplementary file in a JPG, PNG, or SVG electronic format. Please name the file "Visual Abstract".

KEEP IT SIMPLE: Emphasize the new findings, highlight one process or make one point clear, use text sparingly and simple labels. Be also aware that effective use of color can enhance the graphical abstract both aesthetically and by directing the reader's attention to focal points of interest.
