Using visual aids is usually not mandatory for scientific articles; however, incorporating non-text elements into a paper can be a challenge to make it more impactful and make it stand out from the rest. Moreover, depending on the topic, you may even find that visual aids are necessary to understand certain information.
WHAT I DO:
1. SCIENTIFIC ILLUSTRATION
Detailed and accurate illustrations, without overlooking the visual aesthetic quality, and suitable for both print and digital reproduction.
-Accurate renderings of scientific subjects.
-Computer graphics (charts, graphs and diagrams).
2. VIDEO ABSTRACT
An engaging short animated video that summarizes the major aspects of the entire paper:
– The overall purpose of the study.
– The basic design of the study.
– Major findings or trends found as a result of your analysis.
Visually engaging representations of a scientific work can reach thousands of online views and attract a much wider audience than a non-illustrated paper, that is particularly useful for researchers whose grant applications or funding proposals require them to show a high impact component. They are also more likely to be written about and shared digitally, helping to raise the visibility of any scientist’s work, attract more students a lab, boost career standing and improve chances of garnering funding.
