How To Create Tables In Research That Are Effective?

In this course, you will:

  • Look at three visual formats commonly used by researchers to present data—tables, charts, and diagrams
  • Understand how they help complement the information in your paper
  • Learn how to create and format a table that highlights the impact and main findings of your research

Why should you enroll?
Almost all research includes exhaustive data, but not all of this data is important. To make sure that you highlight your key findings, you need to present this data in a way that makes it easier for viewers to grasp it. A lengthy narration describing your data will be counterproductive. Instead, using visual formats such as tables and charts or diagrams will help you to not only condense large amounts of information in a compact manner, but it will also help you ensure that your readers— including the journal editor and peer reviewers—are able to focus on your main findings as well.

This course will help you understand the differences between three main visual formats—tables, charts, and diagrams—so that you can choose the format that is best suited for your data. The course also includes detailed tips on creating tables as well as formatting them and making them attractive and impactful.
