The Challenge

Ensuring scientific articles reach readers and have a high impact is important to every researcher. But with the astronomical number of publications out there, it can be difficult and time consuming for readers to determine if the information contained in a paper is relevant to them. Therefore, journals are increasingly requesting the submission of a “graphical abstract” in addition to a traditional, written abstract.

But how do you develop a good “graphical” or “visual abstract”?

I need a visual abstract to allow readers to quickly understand the take-home messages of our paper.

The Solution

A “graphical abstract” or “visual abstract” is a concise pictorial summary of an article. Engaging visuals provide readers with an overview of the publication much faster than a traditional text abstract. They can convey the key findings of your research quickly and clearly. And they can be shared on a variety of platforms including journal websites, Twitter, and Linkedin. This makes your work easier to find and increases the likelihood it will be read, discussed, and cited.
