Doug Welch in email on May 2nd suggested that some things that need to be improved in plots to make them publication quality are:

- More blank space around the periphery (5%?)
- Every tick on the y-axis is labelled and there are way too many of them. A typical plot in a journal would have 5-8 labelled values, at most.
- The font sizes for the title, and axis labels should be selectable
- An ability to centre the 0.0 phase on either an input epoch of maximum or minimum light (or the result of a fit) would also be ideal.
- The x-axis is much better, although being able to display only half the number of labelled ticks would be better, I think.

    There is of course another approach that can be taken here. Instead of trying to make VStar's JFreeChart plots suitable for publication, export to or integration with tools like R, gnuplot etc could be added to make this possible.
