From the Publisher
This book is…
For the busy scientist
A no-nonsense guide packed with actionable advice for creating data visualizations and scientific illustrations.
For research papers
Self-explanatory data visualizations and crisp scientific illustrations get research papers noticed and cited.
For academic presentations
Convincing presentation slides and visual poster designs aid in delivering memorable scientific presentations.
For research proposals
Visualization of scientific ideas helps scientists like you write research proposals that get funded.
Part I: Eight data visualization progressions
Data visualization allows you to understand the research results yourself and then be able to convincingly communicate them to others – but only if it’s done right. In the first part of the book, you will learn eight bulletproof progressions for turning research data into charts that tell a story.
Part II: Designing scientific graphics
Graphics are often more efficient than words when explaining research methods and displaying scientific concepts. In the second part of the book you will see both good and bad examples of graphics and learn eleven visual features for creating convincing graphics.

Data visualization tools
Use the right tools for the right job. I provide a comparison of different data visualization apps and useful online resources via a complementary website.
Scientific graphic design tools
Charcoal is certainly one way to create scientific illustrations, but there are other tools available. A list of the best tools for creating graphics is included at the accompanying online resource.
The author – Martins Zaumanis
I am obsessed with finding ways to communicate science visually but I don’t expect you to become crazy about it. Quite the opposite: I developed a lean and efficient approach for you to create clear data charts and convincing scientific illustrations. No artistic talent needed.
