Graphs are vital components for analyzing data in the experimental analysis of behavior using single subject research methods. This paper extends the previous literature on the construction of single subject graphs by providing instructions for using Microsoft[R] Power Point[TM] and Microsoft[R] PowerPoint for Mac[R], and describes improved reporting practices for visual presentation of single subject experimental data. Detailed instructions are provided for constructing line graphs for displaying single subject data, specialized graphs (i. e., semi-logarithmic, dual ordinate, and line and bar combination graphs), and electronically submitting graphs to journals for publication.
