Overview

Displaying Your Findings is a comprehensive and accessible resource for creating effective visual materials. Nicol and Pexman have achieved two goals: to clarify APA style for visual presentation and to emphasize the "how to" aspects of presenting research findings. Each chapter is devoted to a different type of figure with examples of variations on each, featuring fictional studies and accompanying figures illustrating the study. Readers will learn everything they need to know about effective line graphs, drawings, scatter plots, photographs, and charts. In addition to providing guidelines and examples of common figures, the book also includes chapters on how to present conference posters and presentations. Every student, researcher, and presenter should have this book shelved next to the APA Publication Manual and Presenting Your Findings: A Practical Guide for Creating Tables. This definitive resource for creating figures will help ensure that every visual display of data is accurate and effective.
