Figure duplication

Avatar for rewt

Hi everyone,

Quick question, can you duplicate the same figure multiple times in your thesis? I made an original flowchart that summaries a certain process and want to include in several sections. Should I modify them ever so slightly so they are unique individual figures or is it okay to simply duplicate?

P

If you are going through the flowchart in stages, it might look nice to redo the figure with the relevant part highlighted for emphasis with a box round it or in bold.
Failing that, duplicating is a good way of preventing your reader having to go back multiple pages.

Thanks for the advice pm133. I was looking through my collated chapters and saw several duplicated figures and panicked if that was allowed.

Yep it's allowed. I've seen it in textbooks too I think.

I have the same problems.
