Create Your Research Poster offers a practical and accessible introduction to the main principles of research poster design.

The need for such a book became clear to me as I was teaching research design and research methods courses, and students across the social sciences approached me often to seek guidance on how to create research posters to present their research for their dissertations and at conferences. Most of the guidance students received to prepare their research posters was very general and almost never included adequate information about the basic principals of good poster design.

At first, the idea for the book materialised as a series of workshops training undergraduate and post-graduate students at a number of universities, including University of Edinburgh and University of Utrecht, on how to combine research design and poster design to communicate their research visually. In June 2021, the book was published.
