Academic Posters

‌‌‌Producing an Academic Poster can be a great way of presenting research in a concise and powerful manner. Posters are used widely within the academic community by scholars representing disciplines from across Medicine and Science, the Arts, Languages and Humanities. Most often they are used to present research findings at conferences and conventions.

The best Academic Posters are those which can effectively summarise the important aspects of a given research topic, are easy to read and understand, and are visually appealing. You want your poster to stand out and to leave the reader with more than a cursory knowledge of your research topic, the research methods you employed and your research findings.

Creating an effective Academic Poster can be tricky business. The examples attached below demonstrate how to go about designing your poster.

On this page we have compiled a variety documents, web page links and past examples intended to provide support and guidance in the production of a successful Academic Poster, regardless of the academic discipline.
