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.

Same Day Poster Printing in Fisherman’s Wharf:
Figure 2 displays exposure to the possibly-relatedmedical communications courses we were able to identify among the top-ranked MD (research),DNP, and PharmD programs. Rankings are according to US News & WorldReport. Each panel provides a breakdown of requiredand elective courses as well as the courses that had a main focus on medical communications,courses that contained a related component, and courses that did not provide sufficientinformation to make a determination. For more information on how these categorieswere 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. Among MD courses, 11 out of 30 possibly-relatedmedical communications courses were required in their respective programs; however, only1 course, an elective, had medical communications as a main focus. Among DNP courses, 14 out of 17 possibly-relatedmedical communications courses were required; however, only 1 of the required courses hadmedical communications as a main focus. All 3 elective courses had medical communicationsas a main focus. Among PharmD courses, 3 out of 18 possibly-relatedmedical communications courses were required for PharmD students; however only 1 course,an elective, had medical communications as a main focus. Across all 3 degree types, the MD programswe analyzed offered more possibly-related medical communications courses. The DNP programs offered more required coursesthan electives, whereas the MD and PharmD programs favored elective exposure to medicalcommunications. To learn about the rest of our analyses andour conclusions, watch our other videos and view our full poster.
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.
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.
