Monthly Archives: October 2014

The number of publications has been increasing each year, and in fact the number of manuscripts submitted increased by nearly 50% (1,079 vs. 690) from 1993-1998 (2). In spite of these statistics, many of these publications are not getting through peer review and eventually end up as manuscripts on bio-poster. The percentage of posters accepted was only 5% in 2013 (1). The quality of presentation of scientific posters at various scientific meetings is generally much lower than that of scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. Only 40% of the posters exhibited evidence of adequate scientific understanding and only 15% (1) even displayed a basic understanding of the material covered in their presentation (1). Scientific posters are also not a good way to gain practical experience. Most posters are often presented in very informal circumstances.

This article is for the aspiring plant scientists and other researchers, especially those who are involved in presenting scientific data at meetings. We will present some very useful tips and ideas on how to improve the quality of your poster presentation. These may seem like common sense to the seasoned scientist, but perhaps the poster is a first-time experience and these tips can be very beneficial.

1. The preparation of the poster is extremely important. The most important aspect of a poster is the topic. If the poster is completely off the wall, it may well be accepted. On the other hand, if there is too much “off-the-wall” material in the poster, it will probably be rejected. Think about the problem that you are addressing in the poster and keep it focused. Don’t introduce new subjects that can distract from the problem. Keep in mind that there may be as many as 60 people (2) on the committee, which means that each person must find this particular poster worthwhile to read. The more you can do to keep the committee members engaged and interested, the more likely they are to accept your poster.

2. The poster itself should be of a high quality. A poster is not a journal article. It should be a short paper that is written for an audience, in order to quickly communicate the information in the poster. It should be readable and understandable. For this reason, it is very easy to present the poster in a very informal manner, especially at an informal meeting, such as a graduate student meeting. The poster should include a clearly labeled title, a clear statement of the purpose of the poster, an abstract of the material to be covered in the poster, and a brief introduction to the poster that introduces the problem and the material covered. If possible, have a few of the figures from the poster prepared for presentation.

3. Be prepared for questions and discussion. Many posters are presented in informal circumstances. This means that some or all of the questions will come from the audience. It is difficult for an audience to make a critical assessment of the poster from the presenter's description. To facilitate this assessment, try to have the posters of several posters presented. It will be easier for the audience to assess the poster as a whole when they have the opportunity to compare the poster to others. Also, try to be prepared for the possibility that there may be more questions about a poster than you anticipated. If it happens, don't get discouraged. Just politely ask the speaker to give the rest of the presentation.

## 4.2 Poster Display

After the poster has been judged and all attendees have had the opportunity to have a second look at the poster, it is time to decide on the proper methods of presenting your poster. You will want to choose a method of presentation that will best highlight your poster. Remember that each person will be looking at your poster through a different filter. The first person will be looking at your poster to identify a problem in the field. The second person will be looking for the results of a research study that has been completed. The third person will be looking to determine the validity of a new method for solving a problem. These three different filters will all have a specific message and will have the ability to change the way that the audience will interpret your poster. For example, if you are trying to convince the audience that a new technology will be a better tool for solving a problem, you might choose to have a demonstration of the technology. If you want the audience to see the positive results of a research study that has been completed, you might choose to have a figure that shows that positive result. On the other hand, if you are trying to convince the audience that your own product is the best available, you might choose to have a figure that shows the performance of the competition's product in comparison with yours.

There are many ways to choose the best method for presenting your poster. Although you might have a clear idea about the information to present, you will want to use your creative abilities to design a poster that is both informative and visually appealing. Choose a method of presentation that will make your poster the most memorable.

## Planning the Layout

Plan your poster in three dimensions: length, width, and height. As a general rule, a 6" × 8" (15cm × 20cm) rectangular poster should be able to display approximately 12 lines of text and 2 to 4 figures.

The exact dimensions of a poster depend on several factors: the audience, the size of the poster, and the message. For example, an audience of 150 people is not going to have a problem with a poster that is 25" × 38" (63cm × 97cm). However, the message and presentation will need to change to accommodate the audience. If you are presenting to a group of scientists who have done research on the topic, you will want to have a poster that gives a high-level overview of their results. If your audience is a local community group, you might want to show the community some of the benefits that your company can provide.

### 1. Use a grid to help you visualize

One of the best ways to quickly create the dimensions of your poster is to use a grid. A grid helps you think about how you want your poster to look. Start with a square—that is, 8" × 8" (20cm × 20cm)—and make it into a rectangle by adding a diagonal. Using a grid to help you determine the best dimensions for your poster is an easy way to set your poster dimensions in a reasonable size. It will also give you the best perspective of the message you are trying to convey. Figure 9-1 shows how to do this.

# Illustrating with space

When you add a grid to a layout, your poster is actually much easier to read. A grid makes a poster easy to see and easier to read because it draws your eye to specific items and helps you visualize the message.

One of the great advantages of using a grid is that you can design the message of your poster without worrying about whether your title will be too big, too small, too left, too right, or too long.

Here are some things to consider when working with a grid:

* **Grid lines.** Choose a color that is easy to see on your background. As you build your poster, add the grid lines whenever you start a new element. You will have a grid to follow as you move. (For more information on working with grids, see Appendix A, "Using grids and grids tools.")

* **Grid areas.** Before you begin your design, identify the areas of your poster where you are going to add text, images, or other objects. This way, you won't make any design errors because you will have a set place for each element.

* **Sizing.
