One of the first things to do is to use 'onefile = FALSE', 'horizontal =
FALSE' and paper = "special"'.

This is in the Details section of ?postscript, which provides guidance
on the creation of EPS files for inclusion in publications.

I would try that to see if that provides a more consistent formatting of
the plots.

You don't indicate what you are using to create the manuscript itself
(ie. Word, LaTeX,  or ?) to help us in considering other possibilities
(such as autorotation).

If the above does not help, please provide a reproducible example of the
plot code and what you are using for the manuscript.
