How to Make an Academic Poster
2
What is an academic poster?
  • A lot of academic conferences and meetings
    include poster presentations. They are visually
    attractive and help summarize complex information
    which is hard to understand just by listening.

3
  • An academic research poster involves a short text
    with graphs, pictures, tables, charts, and other
    visual items. Usually, the speaker presents
    information by the poster display and encourages
    the audience to the discussion.

4
Why create an academic poster?
  • With a poster, you can sum up your research into
    a succinct, eye-catching, and aesthetically
    attractive format. If you are not sure how to
    make an academic poster, read the following tips
    and be successful.

5
  • The best academic posters usually have
  • a concise and short title which grabs audiences
    attention
  • clear and easy-to-understand text
  • it contains bullets, numbering, bright headlines

6
  • charts and tables are colorful and with proper
    fonts
  • everyone can easily read information from 10 feet
    away
  • the layout is clean and properly colored
  • an academic poster contains your name and
    institutional affiliation.

7
Where should you start?
  • Ask yourself the following questions
  • What are the most considerable/appealing/surprisin
    g results from my research?
  • How can I present these findings visually? What
    charts or tables can I use to back up my
    arguments during the oral presentation?
  • What information should I say that will go with
    my poster?

8
Tools
  • There are plenty of computers programs which can
    help you with creating an academic poster
    PowerPoint, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop,
    OpenOffice. Choose the most comfortable and make
    the very best poster.

9
Design
  • One of the main rules is you shouldnt include
    too many pictures, charts, etc. which can
    distract from the content. Besides, the text must
    be brief and up to the point claim one key idea
    rather than the whole sentence.

10
Colors
  • Make sure the text on slides can be easily read
    (choose proper colors in the background such as
    black and white, blue and yellow, etc.). Start
    with goals and objectives, proceed with methods,
    findings, and sum up with conclusions and
    references.

11
  • Ask as many people as possible to give you
    feedback on your academic poster. Find out
    whether it was easy for them to read from slides.
    Change formatting, if necessary.

12
  • Start making a poster in advance. You should have
    enough time for revisions. Check these academic
    posters examples to get an inspiration.

13
Headings
  • Make all headings bold and bright to catch the
    audiences attention. Dont make titles too long
    and wordy. It will definitely bore the reader who
    probably wont even read such a lengthy heading.
    So, make it up to the point and catchy.

14
Introduction
  • Start with the main aims of your projects, its
    objectives, and short background information.
    Explain why your work is unique and differentiate
    from many others in your field of study.

15
Body of your poster
  • Each section should include maximum 100 words.
    Too much lengthy poster wont make an impression
    on the readers. So, make it logical and concise.

16
Methods
  • This section should contain information about
    target sample, statistical techniques, how long
    did your research last, how you measured outcome,
    etc.

17
Findings
  • This section is about data analysis what youve
    got and whether you can prove or refute the
    hypothesis youve stated at the beginning.

18
Tables and figures
  • It is a great idea to include in your poster
    pictures, charts, tables to make it visually more
    attractive. Make them colorful and easy to
    understand. These figures can both add new
    information or graphically present what youve
    already stated in your poster.

19
  • Before printing your poster, make sure all colors
    are proper. Printed version usually differs from
    the one on the computer screen. So, check colors
    in advance where youre planning to print your
    piece. More information you can find in this
    Google book.
