EASE member exclusive: Numbers in formation webinar

Tuesday, 14 September 2021

Autumn webinar series – starting 14 September 2021

Numbers in Formation: Reader-Friendly Organization of Numerical Data into Tables
Presented by Yateen Joshi, EASE Council member and Chair of Training Committee
Tuesday, 14 September 2021, 12pm (UK time)

Generating first-hand data from experiments or from surveys is at the heart of research. Having put in so much effort to get those data in the first place, some authors are reluctant to let go of even a scrap of data and some simply present the numbers – offload them, really – as collected. Editors, however, may need to trim some data or organize the numbers differently to help readers to get a quick overview of the table and to understand the implications of the data. The proposed session answers the following and other similar questions that mid-career editors often ask.
# How can I make tables more compact?
# Which is the correct alignment for numbers in a column?
# How do I indicate missing data?
# How do I choose between a chart or a graph and a table?
# Where do I place footnotes to a table, at the foot of the table or at the foot of the page on which the table appears?

Registration open to EASE members only
