Designing Science Presentations,
Edition 2 A Visual Guide to Figures, Papers, Slides, Posters, and More
By Matt Carter

Publication Date: 04 Dec 2020

Designing Science Presentations: A Visual Guide to Figures, Papers, Slides, Posters, and More, Second Edition, guides scientists of any discipline in the design of compelling science communication. Most scientists never receive formal training in the design, delivery and evaluation of scientific communication, yet these skills are essential for publishing in high-quality journals, soliciting funding, attracting lab personnel, and advancing a career. This clear, readable volume fills that gap, providing visually intensive guidance at every step—from the construction of original figures to the presentation and delivery of those figures in papers, slideshows, posters and websites.

The book provides pragmatic advice on the preparation and delivery of exceptional scientific presentations and demonstrates hundreds of visually striking presentation techniques.
