Description

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and this is especially true when it comes to scientific research. In fact, illustrations are a great way to consolidate data and explain complex concepts in an attractive and easy-to-understand manner. However, translating these technical concepts into illustrations can be a tricky task for most authors.

This comprehensive program will introduce you to the different types of illustrations commonly used in science writing, along with clear and concise guidelines on when and how to create each type of illustration. You will also learn how and when to use photographs, renderings, line drawings, infographics, symbols, icons, maps, legends, collages, and diagrams in your research paper. Simplify your technical writing through well-planned visuals and expand your readership with this program that ensures you understand and apply the best practices to create attractive visuals for your research paper.
