# ListLinePlot scientific notation in y axis

I am working with mathematica 9.0 and I want to make a plot importing data from a .dat file. My issue is that I don't know how to show y axis in scientific notation. My values run from 0 to approx 4000 in the y axis. Can anybody help me? thank you

fakedata = Transpose[{Range[500], RandomReal[4000, {500}]}];

• user25578, did you try something like AxesLabel -> {"axis x", "axis y"}? – kglr Sep 22 '14 at 14:17
