Below is an example of a publication quality plot I've made. It looks a 
bit messy in plain text of this email but works out just fine if you copy 
and paste (separately) each of these 4 cells back into Mathematica.

r[pH_, O2_, Fe2_] :=
  7.9 10^-6 (O2 1.26 10^-3) Fe2 +
   25 3.16 10^-10 10^pH (O2 1.26 10^-3) Fe2 +
   7.9 10^6 2.51 10^-21 10^(2 pH) (O2 1.26 10^-3) Fe2

ticks[start_, stop_, division_] :=
  Table[{i, i, {0, 0.02}, {Thickness[0.005]}}, {i, start, stop,
    division}]

homogeneousiron =
  Plot[Log[10, r[pH, 0.2, Fe2]/Fe2 (24 60 60)/1], {pH, 1, 7},
   PlotStyle -> {Thickness[0.005]},
   PlotRange -> {{0.95, 7.05}, {-5.25, 2}},
   BaseStyle -> {FontFamily -> "TimesNewRoman", FontSize -> 12},
   Axes -> False, FrameLabel -> {"pH", "log \!\(\*
StyleBox[\"Rate\",\nFontSlant->\"Italic\"]\) \
(\!\(\*SuperscriptBox[\"day\",
RowBox[{\"-\", \"1\"}]]\))"}, Frame -> True,
   FrameTicks -> {ticks[1, 7, 1], ticks[-5, 1, 1], {}, {}},
   ImageSize -> 72 5, AspectRatio -> .67,
   FrameStyle -> Thickness[0.005],
   Epilog -> {Text[
      "25C\n\!\(\*SubscriptBox[\"P\", SubscriptBox[\"O\", \"2\"]]\) = \
0.2 atm\n\!\(\*
StyleBox[\"Rate\",\nFontSlant->\"Italic\"]\) = -\!\(\*FractionBox[
RowBox[{\"dlog\", \"[\",
RowBox[{\"Fe\",
RowBox[{\"(\", \"II\", \")\"}]}], \"]\"}], \"dt\"]\)", {1.25,
       1.5}, {-1, 1}]}]
