Have an upcoming presentation for finals? Planning on presenting at an upcoming conference? Attend the Dibner Library’s Research Presentation Workshop to learn about the best practices and what you should avoid in order to create an engaging research presentation.
Learn how to create visually engaging research posters that effectively communicate your data. This workshop will teach you the basic components of a research poster as well as tips for how to best represent your data visually and how to find and cite images with Creative Commons licenses. We’ll also cover how to avoid common technical pitfalls when working with digital images and go over the requirements for printing your poster at Dibner Library.
There is increasing pressure from top journals and grant agencies to include supporting research data at time of publication, however the burden of storage and accessibility often falls to the researcher. This session will cover how you can use GitHub and the Open Science Framework to open up your research, as well as connect your publications with the corresponding data.
A literature review is an integral part of both scientific research and scientific writing. In this workshop, we will discuss the different types of literature reviews you might come across, as well as best practices to ensure your own literature reviews will be successful.
In this session we will provide an introduction to the range of Geographical Information System (GIS) platforms and resources supported by the GIS team within Data Services including ARCGIS, QGIS, and Carto.
