Scholarly dissemination: visual abstracts

By Teri Hartman

Visual abstracts are summaries in a graphical form that engage your readers by highlighting key findings or arguments of your research article. Visual abstracts make it easy to communicate and amplify your research on journal sites, social media, and DigitalCommons

Primers on visual abstracts:  

Examples of published visual abstracts include those in Chest  and Journal of Graduate Medical Education. Journals and publishers offer templates and instruction on creating visual abstracts, such as Medical Education at Wiley 

You can see how other researchers are using Twitter to share their research using visual abstracts. Search for #visualabstract – note that you don’t have to have a Twitter account to see these results. 

Consider creating a visual abstract to attract more attention to your next research article.
