FUNDAMENTALS OF SCIENCE WRITING : Tables and Figures

TMDU Library Seminar
- FUNDAMENTALS OF SCIENCE WRITING : Tables and Figures -
Science writing requires efficient visual presentation of complex information. Tables are often the ideal format to present a large amount of information, while figures help readers grasp complex relationships in data. Poorly presented or unnecessary tables and figures impede rather than facilitate communication. This talk will review principles, practices, and common errors in the visual presentation of information in science publishing.
*This seminar will be recorded, and the video will be available on the WebClass.
