LEGEND: Content 1

The methods in a short report are written as LEGENDS. Legends sit under your graphs and figures but above your tables. The information in a legend should tell the reader how you obtained the data in the figure/table by answering the following questions:

  1. What were the conditions or circumstances under which the data was obtained, e.g. the concentrations, pH, temperature etc. during the reaction?
  2. How was the experiment performed?

Legends provide enough information to allow the reader to repeat the experiment in their lab and with their equipment.
