Same Day Poster Printing in Cole Valley:
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 Now, I can't showyou this poster because this stillhas a whole bunch of unpublished stuff on it.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 be discussing which program to use to make scientific posters. You don't have much choice here, but I see frequently people screwing this up. Let's go over potential programs that people are frequently using. First we have normal powerpoint, you can also get this fro free if you use Open office, LibreOffice or StarOffice. and then we have three Adobe programs. We have Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign. So which program should you use? Well actually powerpoint is not that bad most people are already familiar with powerpoint. And if you create a big spread in the beginning you can align all your objects on the spread and it's quite simple to use. So if you don't have much time for your poster and you want to have still a decent poster it's totally fine to use powerpoint. However as powerpoint is not supporting any vector graphics you should make sure that all your pictures are really big and have a heigh resolution (dpi). If people are interested I will also make a tutorial and show you how to use powerpoint to make your poster. Then we have the other three programs from Adobe. Let's talk about the obvious bad choice here this is of cause photoshop. As the name says it's fro photos and we want to make a poster. And the problem with photoshop is that it is pixel based so you would need to put out the actual poster for print in a very big resolution to get it to print nicely. Also photoshop doesn't support text very well. So for a movie poster photoshop is very nice but for a scientific poster with quite some text and some lines and figures and so on photoshop should never be considered for making a poster. Then we are left with InDesign and illustrator. And quite often people use Illustrator. And to be honest, that is not a very bad choice however we have some specific problems with illustrator. First wen don't have spelling correction. And then also some text features with text kerning, so the spacing between letters and things like that so the really fine detailed things are not very well implemented into illustrator. Also if you want to use boxes with rounded corners as it is used on posters quite often Illustrator has some problems if you resize the boxes. So if you pay attention when looking at some posters you can really tell if people made those with illustrator and just dragged the boxes to resize them and there where screwing up the corners. So why should you use InDesign then? Well InDesign works pretty much like powerpoint. You have a big spread where you can place things on. Also InDesign is very well made for text because it's made basically for print media like magazines and newspapers. And the really nice thing about InDesign is that it does integrate very well with illustrator and photoshop as well. So inDesign it self gives you the very nice text function and very nice boxes that look very well on posters. Also very nice features to align your elements on the poster it self. Because it's a layout program for print, that's exactly what we need. And the big trick with InDesign is that you can take your illustrator file, so lets say we have made a figure or flowchart. Vector based of cause so it prints nicely. We put it into InDesign and then it actually gets linked so now we have a complex figure in InDesign it self that we would normally make with illustrator, which we actually did. And if we now want to change something in this figure, we can just open the *. Ai document in illustrator and make our changes and this will be updated in InDesign automatically. The same thing goes for pictures that we make with photoshop. This way our main document is not very cluttered and it's still very very easy to work with. If you would do the same thing in illustrator we would get the problem that we would have all of our graphics in one document and this can get very messed up with different layers and so on, so we don't want to do that. So I highly recommend using InDesign and if you don't have much time and you are more familiar with powerpoint there is also nothing wrong with using powerpoint. Sure you can till use illustrator but I think inDesign has some key advantages above illustrator and pleas never try to use photoshop to make a complete poster. So it's very simple; InDesign for the layout, illustrator as the name is telling you only for illustrations and photoshop only for photos. If you keep those things in mid (almost) nothing can go wrong with your poster.
So this is a quick video to take you through some of the basics of scientific posters So, a few things to know about posters. They should be visually attractive. They are usually something you, or academics, would do at conferences. They are often up on the walls, or on boards around the room. People mill around and they pick out the ones they want to talk more about, so they need to be reasonably eye-catching. They should be concise. You will have a limited amount of space that you need to get something, which might be a whole study, on. So you need to think carefully about the most important information. They need to be clear. You need people to be able to see some detail from a fair way away, so they want to have a further look at it. Nevertheless, they need to be academic and formal. So they still need to follow some of the requirements that your other reports or essays also follow. In terms of them being written in good, clear English and grammatically correct. And also sometimes following some of the conventions of how you title and layout some of the information. So, this is an example of a decent layout. So you can see we've got the title clearly at the start. It follows a similar kind of pattern that your reports might do, so your lab reports. So we still have an abstract, there's an introduction, you might have a table or a materials and methods section. You've still got results and conclusions There's figures in there as well, and they are often the best way to get information across clearly and quickly, and make it look visually attractive. and you'll notice at the bottom that there are references. So, even though this is a poster, you still need those references. Still using Harvard APA referencing system, as well. So, a few things to think about type and colour. So, it's nice to have a colour background, but I would say that it needs to be a muted one. So not something that's too strong, but something where you still have a contrast between the typed word and the background. But that said, it is nicer than a white background, because it is more eye-catching and sometimes it is easier to read. Also, making sure you don't over-clutter your poster. So leave some clear space. Also, thinking in terms of making sure that things follow a kind of logical progression. So, if I briefly go back to this layout, people tend to read from left to right, and top to bottom. So that's why we've got the title at the top, then abstract, introduction, and then go to the other side to read the results and conclusion, so it follows a logical order. And you can see here, there is still clear space. Also use a sans serif font. It basically means use a clear font that doesn't have too many fancy bits on it. So, anything that looks like handwriting, or old fashioned type, can be quite difficult to read. So, sticking to something like Calibri, or Arial, or something like that. Obviously, making some things obvious. So, your big title, you might want to be 90pt. Section headings 32-36 pt, main body 22-28pt. So fairly big type, as well. Which also underlines why you need to be quite concise in what you are writing. Also, we'd recommend 1. 5 to double line spacing. So you are leaving a decent amount of space between the lines, which again makes it easier to read on a poster. A few little bits about labelling. You definitely want figures on a poster, you don't want it all to be written text. You need something eye-catching and interesting to look at. So you may have figures, graphs, photographs, tables of information. They all need to be labelled, as well. And they all need to do something, too. A figure legend, as it says here, will go at the foot of the image. But also, you have that figure legend in there, saying Figure 1, so you can refer to it in the text. So they should be in there for a reason, and they should be helping to illustrate something that you are actually saying. So you don't want little bits of clip art, or photographs, in there for the sake of it. They should be related to what you are saying. Same with something like a table. So if you have got a list of results to want to give, putting it in a table may be better. They need to be labelled at the top, as this one is, and everything needs a title, as this does as well. So, probably the best way of illustrating this is to show you a few things. So this, for example, is a example of a not very good poster. So you can see that the two pictures there, the two figures, don't have any title. They don't have any legend. So, I'm not convinced that the person who has put them in is actually going to speak about them in the text. The title isn't very clear because they've used some kind of weird word art, so if you were standing far away from it, you might be able to make out Gobi Desert, but maybe not the first couple of words. It's got quite a distracting border around it. It's got a very dark background, and then the actual text is on different colours which is a bit confusing and sometimes means the contrast isn't very good, particularly in the Methods section and the Results section, where the background is quite dark. Also, things aren't quite in order. So you've got the Abstract, but then you've got a figure in the way You've got the Introduction, but for some reason it's followed by the References. You've got the Methods and the Results, but the Methods are really big, and the Results are really small. And then you've got the Discussion and Conclusions kind of shoved towards the end. So it would be much better to have it in columns, justified with each other, so you can make out what section is doing what. That's in comparison to this one, which is much better. It isn't perfect, it could be more interesting, but it is a lot clearer. So, we've got a fairly muted background, a surround which isn't too distracting. The title is clear, it could maybe be a bit clearer, it could be a bit bolder. But you can see that everything is justified. We've got the Abstract, the Introduction and the Methods, so it follows a logical path. We've got some figures in the middle which are labelled and have titles. So we'll assume they are going to talk about it in the text. And then we've got Results, Discussion and Conclusions, and References at the end. So it follows a kind of logical path, you can follow it through from left to right and top to bottom. So, things to check about your posters. Is the format clear? Does it follow a logical path? Are your diagrams, figures and graphs reasonably clear? Are they titled? Can you see at least some detail on them from far away, so they are attractive? Is the text clear? Have you used a reasonably sized font, so is the main body at least 22pt? Have you left at least 1. 5 to double line spacing? And, you yourself, if you put that up on the wall and step away from it, is it eye-catching? Is it something that would make you think 'right, I want to go and read that further'. Further help, as well, if you want some help on technically how to do posters, if you go on the Skills for Learning website, and look at the Workshops tab, and look at Digital Skills, our Digital Skills Team do run sessions on how to do poster presentations in PowerPoint, and set them out. So that's a really useful thing to attend. And this is the information about our Skills for Learning Website. There's also another Guide on there with more detail, on Poster presentations and all sorts of other Scientific Writing as well, and also other ways you can find us including our Blog and Twitter.
