Academic Posters

A guide to designing an academic poster

Types of Posters

Research poster

The content of a research poster generally follows the logic of a research paper:

  • Introduction: thesis/problem presented in a clear and concise way

  • Methods: describe them in two or three sentences

  • Results: graphs, tables, and/or charts summarizing the findings

  • Discussion: clear arguments based on your findings

  • Conclusion: summary and “what’s next” usually placed on the bottom right side of the poster

  • References: smaller fonts could be used – do not distract from the main content

Literature review poster

  • A literature review poster will also usually contain a table summarizing the articles/sources being reviewed.

  • This table will include references to the articles (in the format of in-text citations) and might include sample size, methods, interventions, outcomes, or other particulars depending on the subject.
