About the Book

This book focuses on the best possible communication strategies for anyone working with data. From students developing a research poster to faculty presenting data findings at a conference, it provides the guiding principles of presenting data in evidence-based ways so that audiences are more engaged and researchers are better understood. The book draws on findings from fields like vision science, cognitive psychology, communications, and graphic design and applies them to the everyday reporting and dissemination taking place in higher education. Principles related to graphics, color, placement, and typeface are illustrated through before-and-after cases submitted to and developed by the author, primarily using the standard software in Microsoft Office.
