You must split your task into two parts.

First you must format your plots in the same way. There exists a lot of
commands for this purpose. The following seem important to me:

axes allows you to set teh size of a graph
axis defines the scaling of the graph
xTick, yTick sets the ticks for the axes
title, xlabel, ylabel are helpful for describing the graph

I recommend you to write a function or script to get a uniform layout.

The second step is the export to word. Even if MATLAB supports the
direct way using copy and paste, the results did not convince me. I
decided to export the plot in a file and import this in a word document.
It seems to have more effort, but the result is it worth to me.
