Consider including a Table in your next paper.
They can be very useful.
For example, they can compactly summarise previous work (experimental and/or theoretical) relevant to your paper.
To me Tables highlight an important aspect of science that I think is increasingly devalued or ignored: comparison. Everyone whats to talk about their own results but is less inclined to critically compare their results to earlier work and put it in that context.
It may be painful to admit it but the Table may actually be more useful to the community than the main results in your paper.
I believe Jim Brooks once told me that this was an extremely valuable lesson he learnt from his thesis advisor Russell Donnelly.
To make this concrete I include below a Table from one of my papers with Jaime Merino.
