Poster Presentations

We invite poster presentations for an exhibition and competition at the EASE 2021 conference. Posters may address any aspects of science editing and publishing, but preference will be given to topics on the theme of the conference: “Promoting sustainability and diversity in research: the role of editors

Authors will be invited to present their poster (approx. 5 minutes) before the final judging. There will be prizes in two categories, medical and non-medical, and the winners will be featured in the EASE journal following the event.

Abstracts for posters must be submitted between 1 December 2020 and 1 March 2021. Interested parties should submit a title and 250-word, structured abstract by this deadline. Successful applicants will be notified by 1 April 2021.

All submissions should be sent by email to the EASE Secretariat Mary Hodgson (secretary@ease.org.uk)

Poster Production Guidelines

Size:
Posters should be 1.20cm x 0.90cm, approximately A0 size.

Layout:
The poster should be easily readable from a distance of about 2 metres. A carefully considered layout attracts interest, and facilitates for the reader to understand the author’s findings and their significance. Do not crowd your poster – consider less can be more.

Heading:
The character size for the poster title shall be at least 25 mm, and for the authors’ names and affiliations at least 15 mm. Mixed upper and lower case is recommended to facilitate readability. The presenting author shall be mentioned first.

Structure:
There should be a Background to put your activity into a context, Methods explaining what you did, the Results you obtained and your Interpretation/conclusion of the findings.

Figures and Tables:  
All figures and tables shall be clearly legible from at least 2 m, and each figure shall have a short, self-explanatory legend. Character size in figure legends and tables shall be at least 7 mm. Clarity is much enhanced by careful design and labelling of the figures, and can be further improved by clear colour-coding.

We will make your abstract and poster available online after the conference, so please notify us if you are not willing for this to happen.
