9780123859693: Designing Science Presentations: A Visual Guide to Figures, Papers, Slides, Posters, and More

Clear, polished, and stimulating presentations are as important to the scientific profession as they are to business, yet most scientists never receive formal training in the creation, delivery, and evaluation of such material. Compelling science communication is essential for PIs who must publish in high-quality journals, solicit funding, attract lab personnel, and impress colleagues. Likewise, students and post-docs must effectively communicate scientific ideas in order to publish, receive fellowships, network, and advance their careers. In spite of these facts, the scientific publishing market lacks an adequately visual guide to the production of effective presentations. "Designing Science Presentations" fills that gap and provides visually intensive guidance at every step - from the construction of original figures to the presentation and delivery of those figures in papers, slideshows, posters, and websites. This book provides pragmatic advice on the preparation and delivery of exceptional scientific presentations; demonstrates hundreds of visually striking presentation techniques, giving readers inspiration for creating their own; and is structured so that readers do not need to read from cover to cover to find an answer to a particular question. Clear heading for each section indicates its message, with graphic illustrations to highlight it. 1-2 summary paragraphs that complement the visual images and clearly discuss the main point. Numerous examples of high-quality figures, page layouts, slides, posters, and web pages to help stimulate readers' ideas for their own presentations. Numerous "before and after" examples so the reader can clearly see the contrast between poor and outstanding presentations.

Review:

"Each chapter begins with an introduction to the material and contains a succinctly done and well-illustrated main body, followed by a listing of dos and don'ts for the type of material covered. The text is recommended for the novice presenter as well as the seasoned instructor looking for ways to improve delivery and, perhaps, student (or cohort) evaluations."--IEEE Pulse, July/August 2014 "This volume guides researchers and graduate students in the creation of compelling science communication.This clear, readable volume.provides visually intensive guidance at every step-from the construction of original figures to the presentation and delivery of those figures in papers, slideshows, posters, and websites."--Anticancer Research 34, 2014
