1. The choice of colors for lines and objects should exclude the possibility of information loss when printed in black and white. It is recommended to print out color illustrations using a black and white printer in order to check whether colors are visible and distinguishable. References to colors in figure captions should be avoided;


2. Colored lines on graphs and charts should be marked with letters, symbols, or numbers, or different types of lines should be used for every color;


3. Colored regions in the illustrations should be marked with different symbols rather than with similar symbols of different colors;


4. If adjacent colored regions are of similar color tones, color separation should be supported by a thin line to mark the boundary between these regions;


5. When there are many colored regions with similar color tones in the figure, they should be additionally marked with symbols or hatching;


6. It is preferable to make all inscriptions either black or white depending on the background.
