Guidelines for reporting raman spectral data?

    I have some raman data that I would like to prepare for inclusion in a report (and possibly publication in archival journal). The author guidelines for journals have not proven helpful in answering whether it is acceptable to perform data manipulations such as background subtraction. It has been my experience that this should never be done for diffraction data, but in this case the fluorescent emission from the sample obscures the otherwise well-defined peaks when put into figure format.

    Any tips or guidelines would be greatly appreciated!
