Good research can only be impactful if the message gets across. Tables and graphs are essential for scientific communication, but those we see rarely meet their full design potential. To date, progress in data visualization has not resulted in specific guidance for biomedical science.

Therefore, Maarten Boers (Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at Amsterdam UMC, VU and rheumatologist at Reade, Center for Rheumatology and Rehabilitation, Amsterdam) has written the book ‘Data Visualization for Biomedical Scientists - Creating Tables and Graphs That Work’.

This book uses a hands-on, stepwise approach to make scientific tables and graphs that work. From design principles and basic forms to complex matrix graphs, high-impact publications and presentations.
