The focus of this workshop is helping students plan and compose a research poster. We review the basic contents most posters include, with an emphasis on audience awareness. We cover some basic elements of design, and we discuss briefly how to properly prepare for a poster presentation. In classes where Power Point is available, students can participate by evaluating sample posters.

  • Howdy. My name is __________, and I work at the University Writing Center. We are available to all TAMU students to help with any writing project. You can find out more about us by asking me, or by visiting our Web site at writingcenter.tamu.edu. [If you have time, talk about the hours and locations of the UWC]
  • The topic today is research posters. I will be giving you tips on writing and designing a poster and then show you how to use PowerPoint to make one.PICTURE CITATION: http://postersession.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/plastic.jpg
  • Knowing how a poster is used will help with writing and design. Keep in mind that posters are usually displayed at meeting or conferences in a large exhibit area with many other posters and presenters.Attendees read them at will, so your poster needs to attract and keep their attention. During scheduled poster session times, presenters stand with the posters and explain them to interested attendees. They may also answer questions. Consider the posters you will be writing and if the uses differ from this general scenario. How might certain conditions affect the content or design of your poster?Some questions to consider are: Will you be standing in front of it and answering questions? Is it a field-specific conference (e.g., only engineering topics) or a more general conference (e.g., student research week), or “in between”? Picture Citations: ??
  • Understanding your audience is important for both writing and presenting, including posters. Know who your most likely audience will be before you write, and target that audience with your content, style, word choice, and visuals. In general, make sure you address needs of the expert and the non-expert. Some questions to consider are: What are the applications of research posters? How might this be acceptable for a non-expert? How would your topic appeal to either audience— i.e.what would interest each?Picture citation: ??
  • Using IMRad (Intro, Methods, Results, and Discussion) is a good way to organize most posters. Sometimes academic posters include a SHORT abstract, that tells what you did in a nutshell. Check the standards in your discipline and guidelines of your specific conference because some do not include an abstract. The abstract you wrote for a paper or conference proposal is probably too long for a poster—in a way, the poster IS an abstract or a brief presentation of your work.IMRaD will help you decide what to include.Introduction: What was the problem or purpose of the research? What is the necessary background, if any?Methods: How did I set up the way I would solve the problem? How did I do the research or set up the experiment? Results, and: What did I find out?Discussion: What does it mean? How can it be applied or why does it matter (think broadly too)?Also, if appropriate add References (works cited or consulted) and Acknowledgements (who helped you, funded you)Notice this poster does not have an abstract and uses the headings Purpose and Objective for Introduction. There is no heading for Findings. That’s fine—there is variation in format—you have to go with what works for you. This is just a rough guide.Picture: http://www.pharmacy.purdue.edu/features/2009-05-01.PosterSessions/
  • Short paragraphs will look better and are more readable. No one wants to face a huge block of text and read while standing. Be concise, but don’t leave out important details. (The next slide shows an example of concise.) Parallel lists help your poster read clearly and concisely;an example of a parallel list would be making sure each bullet starts with a verb.Picture citation: ??
  • (animated) This slide shows an example of a wordy paragraph revised into clear/concise list. Note that all of the important information is retained.
  • Sans-serif fonts like Calibri are preferred for Headings, while serif fonts like Times New Roman are preferred for body text. Avoid fancy and quirky fonts, e.g. Bauhaus 93, Brush Script, and Comic Sans. While they may be cool and fun, they are often distracting and hard to read.For most poster sizes, here are some good starting points for font size. But remember, these sizes may depend on the type of font you chose. Note that headings of the same level of importance should be the same size and font type (e.g., the topics of IMRaD).
  • Visuals are used to illustrate a complex concept or to show aspects of your research that may not be well-put in words. Posters should have visuals, but they need to follow certain guidelines. Make sure that the actually convey your message and act to make ideas less confusing. Don’t crowd text and visuals together (use margins and separate the visuals, possibly with borders). Just like in a paper, you should refer to your figure in your text. If the visual needs a citation (i.e., did you take it from a previously published article or from the web?), make sure you correctly cite it as with any other reference.Picture citation: (see poster in later slide)
  • Color can be important for many reasons. You want to grab attention, show connections, highlight important areas. You may even want to create a “mood” or a “theme” For example, what color might be used for a poster about breast cancer (pink)? Ecology (green)? Keep these things in mind when trying to show connections and catch the reader’s eye.However, color can be “dangerous” and work against you. Make sure the color and visuals are related to your purpose and message. Keep in mind that the color on your screen may not always be the color that prints.
  • As with the other factors we’ve discussed, your poster’s layout should be easy to follow. Having text reading from left-to-right within 3-4 vertical columns is common, especially in scientific fields. The IMRaD format lends well to this type of layout. Note the difference in column number between these two posters, as well as their differences in demarcating the separate columns and sections. Picture citation: From Author (LNB)
  • Posters without vertical rows are workable, but they are not really common. Notice how wordy this one is. While this may not be good for a scientific research project, it may bebetter for text-heavy fields like the humanities. Even though there are no columns, note that this poster still has text blocked, creating specific sections.Picture citation: ??
  • Not many people use this layout, as the intuitive nature may depend on the audience/individual. Picture citation: ??
  • So, based on what we have discussed, let’s go through a couple of example research posters. Keep in mind that when critiquing, think about BOTH the negative and positive aspects. Also keep in mind that some aspects of posters may simply be stylistic-preference. However, also think about what is expected in YOUR field and for the particular event where you are presenting.Picture citation: ??
  • Positive: Good balance and use of white space. All parts (Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion) are included. The sections are concise; the graphs are labeled well.Negative: Although all parts are including, the sections are not well-labeled (Intro etc.)
  • The color is a bit overwhelming, but it does get attention. The font and photos are reminiscent of the Victorian era. Uses “I”—OK for humanities. The arrows may be a bit confusing to some people through. Good and clear research question—does not follow IMRD because it is not the same kind of study. Instead, the writer helps us follow her logic as she investigates the topic. Use of colored texthighlights the main points, while the use of boxes organizes her ideas.
  • Positive:Uses titles, headings, color, and white space well. Clear, easy to read, and descriptive title. Good collection of graphs and charts. Lots of detail must have been appreciated by the audience. Negative: gradient of color is a bit distracting, and the black text on green and green text on white backgrounds are sometimes hard to read. What is the purpose of using green, versus another color (i.e., the connection is lost)? Finally, this poster seems to be a little busy, especially with the visuals.Award Winning PosterFrom TAMU Student Research Week, 2010, created at the UWCThere is a copy of this for you to bring to the workshop so people can see the size, etc.Picture citation: ??
  • You should have 2 main versions of your poster presentation. 1) A short version, intended to give the main ideas of your research, likely given to a non-expert. Answer questions such as why the research was needed, the main way you went about the research, what you found, and why that’s significant. 2) a longer version would have answer those same questions but should be a bit more detailed. For example, an expert may want to know how you collected and analyzed your data (e.g., what statistics, if any, did you use?). An expert may also want to know more about how you addressed limitations in the study, and what the next steps in this research will/should be. Try to anticipate questions that you may get and come up with answers to address them. Picture citation: ??
  • Don’t be scared to encourage the audience to talk to you– introduce yourself and invite them to ask questions. Doing so will show confidence and command of your research. When you present, incorporate the visuals in your poster– you can point to the poster directly. Just make sure you don’t stand in front of the poster as to block the visuals/text you are referring to. At the end, it’s nice to have a brief summary, this way your presentation doesn’t end abruptly.Picture citation: ??
  • Here are some resources that may be able to help you. The Kansas University Med Center has a number of tips for presenting.NCSU has good poster examples with positive and negative attributesThere are a number of poster templates available online, including on TAMU. You can also download official A&M logos. Also, check your department’s website– there may be templates available (e.g. Health and Science Center NEXT SLIDE)
  • Various departments at A&M also have poster templates available for download. For example, this one is from the Health and Science Center. Check with your department to see if there are any available for you.
  • The Writing Center offers help with group writing assignments at any stage in the process. It’s most helpful if all members of the group can come in and meet together with a consultant.

Broth was drained from plastic bags through a punched hole Improvement of legume varieties is necessary to overcome challenges of new diseases and achieve higher yields. Most legumes are consumed as cooked seeds; consumer preferences for legume products should be incorporated earlier in the breeding process. Methods to rapidly determine these attributes are needed in order to quantify consumer preferences. The Mattson cooker, which uses weighted plungers, is used to measure one cooking quality attribute, cooking time. The goal of the proposed research was to develop an effective, low-cost method to analyze the cooking quality attributes of legumes. About 25 samples were evaluated during an 8 hr period. Samples were rated for aroma intensity, the number of split seed coats and cotyledons, turbidity of the broth, cooked doneness, and hardness. 3.
