What you learn
The most effective type of display to present your research data
Key visual formats commonly used by researchers to present data
How to pick the right format to complement the information in your paper
How to create and format tables that highlight your findings and drive impact
Research often involves large amounts of numerical or statistical data, and scientific graphs and tables are a great tool to represent this in a compact, easy-to-understand way. By providing large amounts of information in a short time span, these visual elements are effective to grab the reader’s attention, making it an important part of any research study. However, condensing large amounts of information is not easy; in fact, not everyone gets it right!
This well-structured program equips you with the skills to present your scientific data effectively. It will help you understand the differences between three main visual formats – tables, charts, and diagrams – so that you can choose the format that is best suited for your data. The course also includes detailed tips on creating tables as well as formatting them and making them attractive and impactful. Toward the end of the program, you will know how to condense and frame large amounts of information in a compact, visually appealing manner that showcases your findings and makes your work more readable.
