Poster Templates

Here are two templates: 48" x 36" and 56" x 30". They corelate with the elements of a reserach paper:

  • Introduction
  • Aim (could be re-done as Abstract)
  • Method
  • Results
  • Conclusions
  • Acknowledgements and Permissions

They are each missing the Discussion section in favor of a section about printing which is for your information only. Some of that information is also contained in the Printing tab of this libguide.

However, you can use creative license to create a poster which communicates the elements of any other kind of paper or project.
