A scientific poster textually and visually presents scientific and statistical findings.
The audience of the poster is the scientific community, for example classmates, professors, and scientists at conferences.
Each poster should include an abstract, introduction, methods, results, and conclusion.
The style of a poster needs to be clear, precise, succinct, and visually appealing in order to draw attention of the audience.
Like any other written assignment, your poster must have unity, and like any other assignment, that means your poster must have a thesis. Every other element of your poster must stand in relationship to this thesis.
Remember, people read from left to right, and that is how they will approach your poster. Think of your poster as a story with the left side containing the introduction (statement of the problem), the middle section including the description of method and the data collected, and the right side containing your results and the conclusions you draw from them. This doesn’t mean that you are going to have a three column poster necessarily, but you should keep in mind the way people approach writing as you place the elements of your poster to facilitate natural eye flow.
