We want to continue our Summer Writing Exercise by delving into figures! You can help your readers better appreciate your work by making your figures easy to understand.
- Read Ten Simple Rules to Better Figures. Alternatively, seek out some other guide to data visualization or scientific visualization. Several are available for rental or online through CSU libraries.
- Read a paper in your field. For my lab, a few suggestions are listed below.
- Identify 1 - 3 sub-figures (not the whole figure) that you want to tackle.
- Put together no more than 4 slides on how you suggest the figure and/or legend could be improved. Make mention of the advice you read that helped you come to these suggestions. Try to keep your presentation succinct so everyone can have a turn.
Thursday, July 19, 3:00pm - 4:30pm
