Workshop Overview:
Graphical abstracts are increasingly embraced in the scientific community as a powerful tool for communicating research findings quickly and effectively. With the rise of digital publishing and the growing emphasis on visual communication, graphical abstracts offer researchers a way to visually summarise their work in a concise and engaging manner. They provide readers with a snapshot of the key findings and main points of a study, making it easier to grasp the significance of the research at a glance.

In this workshop, we will explore the elements that make a graphical abstract ‘good’, including effective design principles and strategies for conveying complex ideas visually. We will also discuss how to tailor graphical abstracts to different audiences and publication formats, ensuring that your research is communicated clearly and effectively.

Please mark your calendars! Whether you are attending in person at the University of Sydney or remotely from one of the other university locations, this workshop promises to enhance your skills in creating impactful graphical abstracts.
