Description

Graphs and charts are important components of any research paper. They not only help you present complex information in a visual way, allowing readers to easily process your findings, but also boost your readership and drive impact. However, poorly crafted tables and figures can confuse readers and reduce the effectiveness of your research.

This well-structured program does a deep dive into presenting scientific data through graphs and charts in your manuscript. Beginning with a detailed explanation on the key differences between a graph and a chart, this course helps you navigate the different types of visuals, explains the anatomy of a graph/chart, and explains when to use such graphical representation. You also get step-by-step instructions on how to design effective, visually appealing graphs and charts on your own using available computer spreadsheets and presentation software.
