Hello every one! And welcome to the las tutorial of this InDesign scientific poster tutorial series. In the last few tutorials we created this first draft of our poster which you can see here. If you like you can click on this one to watch the previous video. Other wise we get started with todays tutorial. We are still missing some features in InDesign which we didn't discuss in the previous tutorials so in todays tutorial I will go over some stages of the poster till the finished product using those screenshots over here and I'm going to take especially a look at character styles, we're going to take a look at text formatting, basic layout how to use align functions in InDesign. And then we also going to discuss a very important step, exporting your poster to get it out for print. Also we will take a look at the process, so which design ideas and which things change along the way when I created those posters. So let's get started right away. Over here you see the second version of the poster and you see we have a lot of text in there now. So let's go into InDesign and we're going to discuss some text functionality's. We have here now some sample text and the first thing you can see is that a lot of the words are underlined. This is because of the spelling correction. To change that we can edit our "basic text", this is the Paragraph Style for the text over here. And under advanced character formats you can set the language to German, Because at the moment this is in German, the poster. We click on OK. All right, if we take a closer look at our text now it's always a good idea to have some bullet points instead of a big chunk of text. So you can archive this by selecting the text or the paragraphs you want to have n bullet points. And on the paragraph styles you can click on this symbol over here. It might also help to go on *Type* -> *Show Hidden Characters*. This way you can identify what is a paragraph. Also sometimes the text can look batter if it's justified. Like this. If you should justify your text or not is often quite a debate so it's really up to you and your poster what you think looks better. Sometimes if you have latin names or want to emphasise certain words, so the key points you might want to make things bold or italic. to do this I would recommend to define character styles. You can do this by clicking on this panel here and then go on New Character Style. Let's call this one "Bold". And then we go on edit bold. And in here on basic character format we will set the font style to bold. We do the same thing for italic. In this case we can emphasise the word "Gewässer" by clicking on this one. Or for example "Abbildung 3" we click on bold to have this bold as well. Let's quickly make the one for italic. So in this case one point you might have bold for example, would be our goals ("Ziele"). Like this. Also if we take a look at the hyphenation you see we have here a lot of hyphenations going on at the moment. You can change this, if we go on our basic text, we go on edit again. You can go on our hyphenation panel, were we really can tweak the settings if we want to have very long words hyphenated or not and also the easiest thing is to go with this leaver here. So we can say we ant better spacing, if we have the text justified or we want to have fewer hyphens, which how ever can sometimes lead to our letters get a little bis squished together. So you just can play around with this as well. If you would like to have a more detailed description of the paragraphs styles we created you find those in the tutorial before. OK. I also wanted to point out that we did change some things layout and contend wise. So if we take a look at those two posters we have the first one on the left, and the second version we just looked at on the right. On the right side we removed the abstract. Some times you don't really need an abstract for posters, or some people are saying you don't need an abstract at all. And instead of an abstract we included a material and method section which briefly explains the methods we used in the three separate projects which are explained in the columns you see there, the three columns. Also you see we included some boxes to hold the pictures for each of the projects. And if we take now a look at the version three of this poster, you see now we have all of those pictures included and I briefly show how you make those boxes in InDesign and how you import your pictures. We are using rectangular boxes like this one here and in this case they are just filled with a white color like this. And we don'T want to have any borders. You can then go ahead and just rescale them if you want to on the corners or also you can set the width and height of the box over here. However we have just copied this box for the other one as well. Now we can go ahead and just import our pictures, in this case we have a jpg and then an illustrator file which we just drag and drop into InDesign. In here I can just click and drag and I will get those pictures in the right proportions. With this pictures over here we're just going to set round corners like this. And we position it roughly were it should be on the poster. Something like this. We can keep the background at the moment as a reference to do the layout later on. You also see we have a picture of the first person on the poser. So if you have some people who need to provide pictures or information make sure you contact them way ahead of the conference so you have time, or they have time to send you all the information and you can incorporate those things into the poster. This is the next version of the poster, and you can see we have included a little QR code down below. This is the basic link to our website, GeneStream. De And you can make those with simple QR code generators. I will put a link in the YouTube description below to the one I used. I would recommend to use one which has a SVG output format so this means that your QR code is vector based, you can edit it in illustrator and then you can put an Illustrator file onto your poster in InDesign. In this version of the poster you see, if you compare those side by side hat the color has changed a little bit. And this has something to do with transparency settings inside of InDesign. If you don't know how to solve this problem this can drive you a little bit crazy because all your colors look a little bit num and dull. And if you change this to RGB it will look a lot better. And especially if you send your poster around, on a computer, as a PDF for people to look at it looks a lot better with the settings I'm going to show you now in InDesign. If the transparency settings are already set to RGB every thing will be fine but it'S always a good idea to check. In this case this is on CMYK and you can change those things in *Edit* -> *Transparency Blendspace* and you set this to RGB. And now take a look at the blue background and you will see a change. You see the color is now a little bit brighter and not so dull as before. Now you can see we have changed a lot of small details in the poster for example we have included some logos, we have included additional figures also we have included pictures of our partners, of their logos and so on. ANd you can see there are some comments on the poster, so I already got some feedback in for things that should change with text or some figures. And if you want to get some feedback, it's a good idea to send it around as a PDF or you could also print your poster in a bigger size maybe like this, two dina 4 pages. And then just take it to the lunch room of your department take some post-it's with you and some cookies and make a little note that says: Every one who has any idea how to improve this poster just write a note and stick it on the poster on the spot were you would change something and you can get a free cookie if you do so. So lot's of people will give you feedback this way if they spend some time in the lunch room and have a coffee. In this version of the poster you see the layout has changed a little bit, so things were shifted around and look more cleaner. So we go into InDesign and take a look at the align tool and also some other tricks that will help you to get a nice layout and everything aligned really well together. I will show you now some tips and tricks how to do a good layout. We have a lot of tools in InDesign which can help us. The first one are smart guides, so under *View* -> *Grids and Guides* you can activate those. Smart guides will help if you move things around, to make them stick to certain anchor points and also objects relative to the objects which you are moving. If we take a closer look at these pictures for example we have now moved this one, so this is totally out of place. And one really useful tool is the align tool. If you don't have this panel here, you will find this under *Windows* -> *Object and Layout* -> *Align*. If we now select all of those pictures, we press the shift key to do so we can then press on align objects, on this one "Align relative to top edge" and all of them are aligned. We also find here the distribute spacing function so if we select two objects, we select this blue box here and for example the picture which should be relative to the blue box and we say we want to have a spacing of for example 15 mm we can then click on this one here, and this moves the picture up a little bit. If we want to have those 15 mm for all of our pictures we again select those an press this button to set this pictures here also at the height. If we then wan't to have the text boxes also 15 mm away from the pictures here we can't really do this using those functions here, so there is a workaround. Let's zoom in. We can then create a empty box like this let's give this one a fancy color that we don't miss this one. And if we then take a look at the height we can set in here 15 mm. And as we have the snapping activated (the smart guides) we can easily align those things. And we move this up like this. Now we can take the box to the other columns as well. The last really useful thing are guides and you can just pull them out like this and you can align objects to those guide lines as well. You can also take those from the sides. To do this you need to have those rulers activated and you find those under view and here you can show and hide the rulers. Also you should be aware that those guides can be placed on different layers and you also can lock those if you want to. If you don't want to use those technique with those boxes for the pictures over here you also can use guides. With the guides you can do this trick with the spacing as well so you would be able to get the 15 mm distance from your pictures to your boxes right here. So using those guides and all the other features I showed you as well as the predefined columns we have it's a really easy task to get a nice layout within InDesign. This takes some practice and there are several ways of doing things just try out the different tools I showed you and select the ones which work best for you. Also let me quickly point out that we converted a lot of the text to bullet points as well to give this poster a better structure. While the layout was already finalised we still were working on this poster as you can see on the next version. And we changed some pictures and some text. However the layout did stay roughly the same. However we added some conclusions down here, you see the bar, the "Fazit". And this pushed down our partners and the QR codes quite a bit however I didn't want to do all the things again with the layout because it'S already quite tight with the space and not much space left. So if we take a look with the next version you see that we just extended the space of the page a little bit. So I will show you this as well. And the idea here is, if you take the page or the poster you printed you can just print it on the same size but then you just make it a little bit smaller and you cut away the rest of the paper which isn't printed. So this way the poster will have the same size, it will still fit on a normal poster wall but is a little bit narrower, but no one will notice these few centimetres and you still keep your nice layout. So this is kind of an emergency solution, so let's see how we are doing this. If we take a look at this poster right now, you see that we have a lot of stuff down here, which is really on the edge of the poster because we added this little information down here and this pushed the layout of the rest down to the edge of the paper. You could now go ahead and change all the layout again and smash things more together but instead you can also just increase the size of the spread. So to do this you would go under *File* -> *Document Setup* and in here for example were just going to ad 10 more cm on the height of this document. We click on ok and you see it has added those things. This is a little bit to much, but just in principle you would now also go ahead and unlock all layers and now you can go ahead and select all of those things and then we move this up step by step so we have it in the centre. Something like this should be fine. And now we can reduce the size of the spread a little bit more that we don't have so much empty space right here. So maybe something like 5 cm less should work fine. Yes, even a little bit less, but you get the idea how to get the spread into the right size. So now the poster is finished and we can go into InDesign again and I show you how to print this. I should really recommend if you print any thing, make sure that you go to the printer or printing service ant your university and talk with them which settings they really want. Those settings I show you here are kind of some general setting which should work but the best idea is to really talk with the guys who will print your poster. We have here our final poster and now it's time to export this for print. You can go on *File* -> *Adobe PDF presets. * and select high quality print. We select a destination where we want to save our document. We click on Save. And in here you can set a lot of things. A really important thing is in the compression tab, you really want to make sure that the pictures have a high resolution. So 300 could be fine, you could also push this one to 600, but it shouldn't be less than 300. With the Bleed settings you don't need to play around so much. The color conversion kind of depends on what the people at your University are suggestion or the people who print your poster. If they don't really know which color profile to use or if they do ignore the color profile you can just leave it as it is. In advanced you can set that all the fonts will be embedded in the PDF as well. Security and Summary we don't need to do anything, so you can keep this basically as it is. So high quality print is the setting you want to choose. We click on export. And it takes some time, you see over here that it's working. And there we have our final PDF. You should take a good look at it again and see that everything looks fine all the pictures have a good resolution and so on. And then you can give this away to your printer. It might also be a good idea to make a print with your local laser printer at your department just to give you an idea what the colors might look like. THis however does not represent the actual colors of your poster. All right I hope you enjoyed this course and it was really helpful for you. If you were missing some information or have any questions make sure to post them in the comments below. I really hope you might give me some feedback and say what you like or didn't like about this course. Until next time see you bye bye! And have fun with your posters!.

Table 1 lists courses we were able to identifyamong the top-ranked MD (research), DNP, and PharmD programs that offered medical communicationsas a main focus and also those that mentioned discussion of advanced topics related to publicationpractices. Rankings are according to US News & WorldReport. The course names and their respective schoolsare provided in the Table. For more information on how “main focus”was defined and the limitations of this analysis, refer to our full poster. We identified a total of 65 possibly-relatedmedical communications courses among 27 MD, 17 DNP, and 13 PharmD programs. The 9 courses listed here were taken fromthe 38 courses we were able to categorize. 6 courses had a main focus on medical communications,whereas 8 courses specifically mentioned advanced topics related to publication practices, suchas journal publication decisions, journal and audience selection, authorship guidelines,writing challenges, critiquing one’s own and others’ writing, plagiarism, and professionalstandards. Unfortunately we did not find any mentionof publication practice guidelines and the courses did not seem to follow any standardformat. To learn about the rest of our analyses andour conclusions, watch our other videos and view our full poster.
What is this thing? This is a scientific poster. They spelled my name wrong. You know how in middleschool and high school, sometimes you would doa project and then you'd have to make a poster about it? And you would gointo Microsoft Word, and you would make3D text to put up at the top as yourtitle, and then you'd have different sectionsabout the introduction, and the conclusions, andthe middle, and the body, and all the stuff that you did? Well, I remember thinking,why am I doing this? It was fun. Like, I kind of liked it. But I rememberthinking, you know, adults don't make postersat their real jobs. Science adults do. Scientific posters areactually a really common way of getting yourresearch out there at places like conferences. You make a poster,and you set it up, and you often standnext to it and talk to the people who come upto see your poster about it. So it's sort of avisual thing that you can point to show them yourdata while you're trying to talk about your project. And it's a reallygreat way for you to both get yourinformation out there, often before it'sfully published, and also to getfeedback on your project while you're still doing it. Most posters areglossy paper, you know, giant, printed out sheet. But some posters arenow made of fabric. And so this is really niceif, like me, you're traveling, and we need to bring yourposter and put in your suitcase, and then you justwant to iron it when you're there, rather thanhaving to carry a giant poster tube. You can also wear itas a science cape. Very "in" this fall. Now, I can't showyou this poster because this stillhas a whole bunch of unpublished stuff on it. And honestly, this one does too. But I've already presentedit on the internet, and you could gowatch that here. I've presented this posterat a conference last fall. And it's not the greatestposter in the world. But I want to use it todemonstrate some science poster stuff. So it's really got allthose same basic pieces you would think about if youwere making one for. school. You know, you get a title. And then there's anabstract or introduction. And then I give a whole bunchof background information. I talk about the methodsthat I used to do my project. Then I talked about theresults to do the project. And then at the end, I'vegot conclusions and stuff. Is this working for you? This is real helpful, I know. But what I hope youcan see is that there are lots of pictures. OK, this is avisual way of trying to get across my methods,and my results, and my data. I try to make my postersvisual because posters are unique in that they haveto play this dual role where sometimes they haveto stand on their own if you're not thereby the poster. Often at a conference,you'll hang up your poster one morning, and it'll staythere for a couple days. And people can sortof walk around. So the poster needs tobe able to demonstrate a lot of the thingsthat a paper would. It really needs to be ableto tell the story on its own. But also, there areoften poster sessions where you are standing with it,where you are using the poster to help you tell your story. So you don't wantit to just be text, because you want to be ableto talk about those things and to really usethem and utilize them. So, what have we learned? Scientists make posters. Posters are both visual aidsand storytellers on their own. And they can be kindof big and unwieldy. I have to give threeposters this fall. One, I presented atmy department retreat a couple weeks ago. One, I'm presenting at theAmerican Society of Human Genetics up in Vancouver. And then one, I'm presentingat the American Heart Association in New Orleans. And that's really one of thenice things about a poster, is that my projectisn't at a stage where I'm going to give a gianttalk at any one of these three things. But still, a poster allowsme to present my project to the community there atall three of these events, and get feedback. So I already gotsome great feedback at the genetics retreat. And I'm hoping to getfeedback from people way outside of my departmentat these two conferences I'm going to. So, posters allowlots of scientists to present a lot ofscience all at once, and get great feedbackfrom lots of cool people. And poster sessionsoften have great snacks. So if you want a lotof people to give you feedback on your poster, setup right by the cookie stand. That's where you got to be. Go forth and makescience posters. Hey, hey, we've got to talk. So, you might have noticedthat my posting schedule has been a little erratic lately. Things have been kind of crazy. But I have a couplereally cool, really great video projects lined upthat I'm working on in October, November, and December. I'm super excited about them. I think you guys are going tobe super excited about them. And the best way foryou to help me right now is to share yourfavorite video of mine with your social networks, andyour peeps, and your friends. Get people excited. And get people here before thesebig projects come to light. I hate asking forthis kind of stuff. I am never one ofthose YouTubers who is like, "comment,like, and subscribe. " Something about thatfeels super weird to me. But it really doesmake a huge difference when you guys share my videosand spread them around. So if you want tohelp me out, if you want to make it alittle easier for me to keep making these videosin the next few months while I have a bunch of coolprojects that I think you guys are going to love comingup, take my favorite video and share it with somebody. That's all I ask. Put it on Twitter. Put it on Facebook. Send it in an email to your mom. Whatever you're going todo, it really helps a lot. And I appreciate itso, so much whenever I see you guyssharing my videos. Because just the fact thatyou like it enough to share it means a lot to me. So, yeah. I'm excited. I think you're goingto be excited to.
Hello every one! Today we will continue working on our poster. And I would recommend if you have a department at your University to also take a look at posters that other people made. And especially take a look at the text sizes and pick a poster were you like the text size, and the spacing and the general layout. I would also recommend to take a ruler and actually measure the text size and also the distances between the objects. SO you can copy those exact sizes into InDesign. So now let's get started with the poster. For InDesign you need to figure out how big your poster should be. In this case we will make an A0 poster. You find the dimensions of the paper for example on wikipedia. I will have a link in the description below. Now let's go back to InDesign and in here we create a new document. This one should be of cause for print. In this case we don't need facing pages and one page is enough. The paper size should be A0 this is not in here, so we need to type in the values. Double check that those values are correct. Next we could set up the column but we will do this later. However the margins we can already set those up in here. Those will be the space between the actual poster and the space to the border of the paper. So in this case 25mm should be fine. If you are working with inches and things like that you can also write them in here and ad the uni inch. And InDesign will convert those automatically to your default unit. We can click on OK. And the first thing you want to do is to save this document. I always like to add a version one, version two and so on so I have always backups of the original files. We click on save. I have prepared as I have recommended in a video before a little draft. So we can import this in here. This is just a picture I took. Normally you don't need to import this but for you so you can follow along I will put it in here as well. So this is the basic layout of the poster. You see here I want to have a 3 column layout with the main projects. We also want to lock this layer and create a new one. And the poster itself if about the GeneStream project This will be a project were 4 PhD students will be working on to get their Dr degree. And I will be one of them. So the main goal of the poster is to introduce the project it self to show our project leader and also our project partners and give a little introduction. And then to introduce each project in quite some detail and also the person who is mainly working on this project. Then of cause we have a link to the website and acknowledgements. As we have a 3 column layout we should insert some lines in here. And we can do this under [Layout] -> [Margins and Columns. ] And in this case we would like to have 3 like this. And the gutter, so the spacing between those should be 2 cm. well, maybe 15 mm (spacing) is already enough. We can change those things later on. Click on OK. And here we have our basic layout. If you would have a more classical poster like this one here We actually would have a 5 column layout so those would be 2 columns and this one here 3 to give it a nice layout. In this case the materials and methods and the background should not take the main space of the poster this is more result oriented and for the discussion and conclusion. But in this case we will go with a 3 column layout. and we can start to insert a background. So we make sure that those are snapping nicely to the edges. In this case we have under [view] -> [grids and guides]. the smart guides activated, so this way everything snaps into place at certain ancerpoints. We can select this one here this is just a box. And we give in a nice color. Let's switch this one to RGB. And let's select maybe a nice blue. In this case this is for the border, so we switch it. So maybe something like this is fine for now. We can go to this layer and lock this one as well. And we put it for now into the background. Now we can add some text in here. So therefore we need a new layer. This will be our text layer, we put it on top. And we just start to drag out some text boxes. In this case this will be for the main headline. Then we will have a sub headline and also an area for the main authors. And also some contact information. Let's hide our draft for the moment and zoom in and write some text. For the headline I would recommend a text size of around 100-90 pt. And we change the font and we can make this bold. In this case I would increase the text size. This should be fine for now. At this point you don't need to vorry to much about this things. We can always change it later. Next we have this one here. In here you can add your authors. And you see now the font is changed again so to avoid this, we want a consistent fond across the whole poster. We should define a standard font in here. We click on the paragraph styles. Click on this one "NEW" and we name it "font". I'n this one we go on edit and go on basic character formats. And in here we set the font "myriad pro". Click on OK. And the headline, we can also create a new paragraph style for this one. Call this one headline. And if we go on edit we can make this one based on font. So it will always have the font that I set in the paragraph style "Font". For the authors and people to respond to maybe a text size of 50 pt is quite nice. Now I would think we should increase the size a little bit so all names do fit one here. Like this. And actually the Green on the Blue is not very nice to look at so let's change the color in here. We can double click on this and change the color for example to Red. Also you might want to change the names in here. So this will be our text Layer, and the rest is fine for now. Of cause we also want to define this one as a new paragraph style as well. Now we also need a sub headline. And for now this can be the same size. We will tweak those things later on. Let's arrange them how they would be on the final poster more or less. And over here there should be a small logo. So we put a box as a placeholder in here as well. And for figures and logos you should always use a separate layer, to keep everything organised. Like this. And if you want to move something to a new Layer, just drag an drop. Yes, this is unfortunately Green again. So we double click and change the color on this as well. We can also place a placeholder in here for a little university logo. Let's increase the size again. And now we need to redefine the style. This way the changes are applied to this paragraph style. If we now take a look at our draft we see that we have kind of a figure in here and also we want to have a small abstract. So in this case we can hide it again. And we first going to create a new layer and this one will be for text boxes. And this one can stay Green. So now we're going to create a basic text box. This will be for the introduction. And you might want to give this one another color. For example a nice orange to make it more visible. We can change all of those things later on. And for now we don't have a border. The really nice thing about InDesign is that you can give boxes very nice corners. So in here we can for example set 15 mm and we change the corner style of the box to round. This way it does get round corners on each side. Let's take a look at this in preview. Maybe we can increase this to 20 mm also. But those are details you can always change later on. Next we want to have our placeholder. This will be the pyramid thing That we put in here, a picture like this. Of cause we should move this one to the figures layer. Actually let's change the color of this one to maybe a dark Blue, jup. Next we can copy this one here. And have some informations about the project coordinator. And we can give this one maybe a nice blue. That is a little bit darker than the background. Maybe like this. Of cause you should make sure it is in text boxes. On the side there will be more information about the project it self. So some ext saying that we have 4 PhD projects and that they will be explained below and that all projects are quite interconnected. Next we can place our projects. By the way I am copying those things by pressing [ALT] when I drop it. And we can just give this one a nice size. We need some space down here for later. But this should be fine for now. Below here we need another text box. This one will be for the project website. And then we need another box for acknowledgements and all the project partners. Let's also add some space for pictures. We go to the Figure / Logos layer. And in here we just drag out some boxes. So here I would take a picture of every person that is responsible. And also we want to have nice picture for each project. We should make sure that those have a good size, so the border between the picture it self and the side of this box should be 10 mm, so let's zoom in in here. And we make sure that this one is right aligned, so it has the right size. So this is the width. And we're going to copy this and subtract 20 mm So instead of a 5 we have here 3. Now this box has the right size. We can now centre it in the middle. This is done by smart guides. And here we will have our picture in the end. We can also copy this one. The only thing that is missing now is the main text and to enter those you could do two things you can select the type tool and clicking one of those frames, to convert ti to an object where you can type in. However we're not going to do this right now. Instead we're going to switch the layer to text. And in this case we will drag a new text box above this layer. Because if we type in here the rounded corners will screw up our text layout. So we create a new text box and have this one on top. We don't need to worry to much about the alignment at this point. However what I would do now is go on text frame options and in here put a spacing of 10 mm on each side. Like this. And in here we will have our abstract. So the headline for example should be maybe the same size for now as our main authors. And then the basic text should be around 30 pt. In this case we're going to create a new style and call this one "basic text". We can now copy this one for all our boxes. I will take now some time to do some fine tuning and to add some text. You can add pictures, by just selecting them and dragging them into InDesign. Just click and hold to give it the right size. We can also put pictures directly into empty boxes. Like this. If you want to resize or manipulate the fitting of the pictures you can do this with those things here. Resizing it self can be done by double clicking in here and now you see it's Yellow around and by holding the shift key you will make sure that you don't change the proportions of the picture. All right I will do some layout stuff and we see us back in a few minutes. I find it always difficult to get the colors right so a good trick is to go to google docs and in here you have very nice colors. And we're going to take a screen shot of this we press [cmd]+[Shift]+ and we can select just these colors here. And then drop them into InDesign. We can put them on the side and select a nice color using the eye dropper tool. So we have here a nicer blue. We can also add some layout guides, but we want to put those on a separate layer. Let's call this one guides. And now we can from here just drag them down like this. And we clock them. This way we can align our objects on the same height. Like this. You might want to change the distances from the headlines and the normal text, and we can do this over here. We can maybe set this one to 7 mmm. like this. Or maybe 5 mm is already enough. And we want to redefine this over here. All right, here the basic layout is done. And now it's time to push this first idea to the other people who are working on this poster and to get some feedback and also some more text in it. I have changed some things. I did set the roundness on these boxes to 15 mm. And I also added some paragraph styles, some new ones for the figure descriptions. This one has the text size 24 pt. I will keep worrying on this poster and I will show you further results in one of the next videos. So you can click here and watch that video. Bye bye.
