I always try to make life as easy as possible for my reviewers.
As a reader, I much prefer in-text name citations to numbered ones.
The citations are part of the flavor of the paper and, especially on enormous double spaced documents, it's hard to flip back and forth to look at them.
I don't think that attitude will be surprising to readers around here.
So what should I do when I submit a manuscript to a journal that asks for numbered citations?
In the past, I have just submitted it with numbers. But why should the reviewers suffer just because the journal has a silly policy? Especially when that policy is designed for readers of finished manuscripts, not reviewers?
Maybe submitting the document as it would appear in published form made sense back in the day. But now, with the click of a button, I can change formatting style.
That's why I decided to submit manuscripts with the name style citations, even for the journal with numbered cites in published manuscripts.
I also include the figures, in small forms, in-line. I have started getting papers to review that look like this, and I much prefer it as a reviewer.
