Product Description An EasyGuide to Research Presentations is an invaluable tool for helping readers learn the ropes of presenting original research and experience the thrill of becoming part of a strong scientific community. With coverage from poster presentations and symposia to oral and video presentations, this handbook offers a concise, easy-to-read guide on professionally presenting research in virtually all formats. Drawing from their own experiences as researchers, authors Janie H. Wilson and Beth M. Schwartz use a conversational style to address such topics as how to connect with an audience, presentation pitfalls, publishing and sharing results, and more. Review "Presentations can be overwhelming to students . . . the tone [of this book] may help to relieve some anxiety . . . This text is excellent for both novice and more experienced students. It will be a very useful manual for students who are required to prepare a poster presentation for course fulfillment [and] also for students who present research at regional and national meetings." -- Angela M. Sikorski "This is a major component to my course―oral and poster presentations―and something my department is looking to enhance within our majors." -- Christopher Klein "I like the comprehensive approach to presentations . . . from personal prep beforehand, to creation, to following up afterward." -- Anthony D. Hermann This guide helps students to understand better the publishing process and to realize that publishing is an outlet that they, too, can strive to accomplish and that it is not a privilege reserved only for advanced researchers. Upon completion of this guide, students will be better equipped with the skills to share their own research, from the classroom to a conference to a professional journal. -- Renee Boburka, East Stroudsburg University, USA About the Author Janie Wilson received her PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina in 1994.
