I am making a French science baccalaureate project and I am using the pgfplots package to create graphs from experimentation datas. The only problem is that there's a little blank space between the y axis and the y axis legend I want to be reduced. Illustration :

MWE :

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{axis}[reverse legend, legend pos=outer north east,xlabel=Temp\'erature (K),
    ylabel=R\'esistivit\'e ($\Omega\ldotp m$)]
\addplot table [mark=diamond,x=T(Kelvin), y=p(omm)]{mydata1.csv};
\end{axis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

The mydata1.csv table :

  • could you add some sample data from you filecontents? – Rico Jan 2 '16 at 20:45
  • Without mydata1.csv it may be difficult to reproduce your problem. BTW: $\mathrm{YBA_{2}Cu_{3}O_{7-\delta}}$ looks better than your (math)italic version. – Przemysław Scherwentke Jan 2 '16 at 20:45

    Set \pgfplotsset{compat=1.12} or newer. Recent versions of PGFplots use a different (better) placement method. – Jake Jan 2 '16 at 20:51

You can use the options ylabel near ticks and xlabel near ticks this moves the label closer to the axis

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{axis}[reverse legend,%
             legend pos=outer north east,%
             xlabel=Temp\'erature (K),%
             ylabel=R\'esistivit\'e ($\Omega\ldotp m$),%
             ylabel near ticks]
\addplot{1};
\end{axis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

I inserted a simple linear line since the data seams not to be necessary here.

Edit: As @Jake pointed out \pgfplotsset{compat=1.12} also does the trick. So I would suggest you use this solution and do it without ylabel near ticks

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\usepackage{tikz}

\pgfplotsset{compat=1.12}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{axis}[reverse legend,%
             legend pos=outer north east,%
             xlabel=Temp\'erature (K),%
             ylabel=R\'esistivit\'e ($\Omega\ldotp m$)]
\addplot{1};
\end{axis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}
  • Now working!!!! – PMC1234 Jan 2 '16 at 21:07
