2022 Summer Scholars Posters
Research posters created based on the 2022 Summer Scholars Program will be shown here in August 2022.
Instructions for Making Posters
- We recommend creating a folder on your computer for your poster to keep notes, text, and images you will need to create your poster.
- It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with copyright laws and to obtain permission from a publisher to use any copyrighted images in your poster.
- The layout is basically a large slide produced in PowerPoint (PPT) from which your poster will be printed.
- The text file is the written content of your poster which is usually created in Word.
- Image files should be PNGs or JPEGs (JPGs). JPGs do no hold transparency, so if you're using a company logo, ask for a PNG or ask a member of the LSU Vet Med Communications Team (email@example.com) to convert the image file for you.
- Graphic files consist of charts, graphs, diagrams and tables. They can be created using programs such as Excel, SigmaPlot, or DeltaGraph.
- Dimensions of the poster 42" wide x 36" high.
- Each poster must include a QR code so that people can view the poster online. You can get the QR code from Ginger Guttner (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Britta Leise (email@example.com).
- Don't be too wordy; let the images and graphics "tell the story."
- Each poster should have the abstract title, an introduction, hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions.
- Avoid downloading graphic art or photographs off web sites as they are usually low resolution images and will not reproduce well on your poster and may be subject to copyright laws.
- Image resolution should be at least 200 dpi and preferably 300 dpi.
- If you need assistance with images or graphic elements for your poster, please contact a member of the LSU Vet Med Communications Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Once you have completed and proofread your poster carefully, you will need to have it printed.
- Save the PowerPoint slide to a folder and zip or compress the folder.
- Upload the compressed or zipped file to the printer.
We have a poster template in PowerPoint that you can use.
