Title: Abstract Writing and Poster Making Skills Seminar


1
Abstract Writing and Poster Making Skills Seminar
  • July 11, 2016
  • Content by Dr. Stephanie J. Wetzel

2
Abstract
  • Abstracts are expected to report the basic
    informational content of the poster
  • Abstracts are written in passive voice,
    past-tense
  • 150 word limit, not including title and authors

3
Abstract Content
  • The abstract must summarize the technical content
    of the poster and furnish sufficient information
    to allow the reader to judge whether he or she
    should consult the poster for all of the details
  • The abstract must be self-contained and
    understandable apart from and without reference
    to the poster

4
Abstract Content (cont)
  • It can be assumed that the reader is
    knowledgeable in the field, but special
    terminology, abbreviations, and jargon should be
    defined
  • The abstract can include a brief statement of why
    the work was done, but it should not include
    background or other introductory material
  • The abstract should answer any questions posed by
    the title

5
The First Sentence
  • The first sentence is critical.
  • It is usually a brief information statement of
    the major results reported in the poster
  • It does not include a restatement of the title.
    It may contain specific data. For example, a
    general statement that an important measurement
    was made is insufficient include the results
  • Facts contained in the first sentence are not
    repeated later

6
The Remaining Text
  • The text that follows the first sentence may
    consist of supporting statements, methodology,
    test results, activities of the users for
    chemical compounds studied, indications of the
    number and types of chemical compounds included,
    limits of accuracy and reliability, and
    additional results and conclusions

7
The Remaining Text (cont)
  • This information is described concisely but
    informatively to the degree necessary for
    understanding. Only enough data are given to
    support the results and conclusions
  • Interpretation must be differentiated from fact.
    Predictions and plans for future work are
    omitted. Negative results and unsuccessful
    experiments are reported in a general, summarized
    form

8
Poster
  • A poster should be self-explanatory the main
    points should be communicated without the
    presenters explanation
  • Prepare an oral presentation of no more than 5
    minutes to walk interested parties through your
    poster
  • Allow people to peruse your poster for a minute
    before offering to lead them through it

9
Poster Layout
  • Arrange the poster panels or printout for logical
    flow from top left to lower right
  • Text, figures and photographs should be readable
    from a distance of 3-4 feet
  • Use a font such as Arial or Helvetica in a
    minimum size of 24 pt. (1/4 inch high)
  • Poster Area is limited to 44x44
