New York University poster guide
Colin Purrington - Here you will find poster layout ideas
These two sites contain excellent advice on creating research posters. I highly recommend you check out these sites - but in the meantime here is some of their most valuable suggestions -
- Important information should be readable from about 10 feet away
- Title is short and draws interest
- Text is clear and to the point - use simple fonts for body text
- Use of bullets, numbering, and headlines make it easy to read
- Use graphics and photos - but also have plenty of white space for the eye to rest
- Use fonts consistently - limit yourself to one font for body text, and one or two for headlines
- Be sure to organize your text blocks and headlines in a logical order. You may want a second party to look at your poster for you.
Citing your work
Gale Database will create your citations for you. However, for your other sources, I suggest Citefast.com. Import the citations it creates into Word. If you import them into Google.Docs, you will have to create your own hanging indents.
