  3. Visual strategies : a practical guide to graphics for scientists & engineers

    Frankel, Felice
    New Haven [Conn.] ; London : Yale University Press, ©2012.

    Explanatory graphics can clarify or strengthen an argument by guiding us through data or concepts. Exploratory graphics draw us into the research process, allowing us to discover patterns and relationships ourselves. This guide will help you create more effective graphics to support your work.Any scientist or engineer who communicates research results will immediately recognize this practical handbook as an indispensable tool. The guide sets out clear strategies and offers abundant examples to assist researchers-even those with no previous design training-with creating effective visual graphics for use in multiple contexts, including journal submissions, grant proposals, conference posters, or presentations. Visual communicator Felice Frankel and systems biologist Angela DePace, along with experts in various fields, demonstrate how small changes can vastly improve the success of a graphic image. They dissect individual graphics, show why some work while others don't, and suggest specific improvements. The book includes analyses of graphics that have appeared in such journals as Science, Nature, Annual Reviews, Cell, PNAS, and the New England Journal of Medicine, as well as an insightful personal conversation with designer Stefan Sagmeister and narratives by prominent researchers and animators.
