Visual and video abstracts are an accompanying feature of a research article that promotes the highlights of the study. It enhances your text abstract to entice others to read your paper and does not replace or simply restate the text abstract. Though this guide provides some general guidance for creating visual and video abstracts, you should follow any specific requirements outlined by the publisher of your article.
Best Practices for Visual Abstracts
Use one slide or large graphic to summarize research
Distill key findings or conclusions into as few words, numbers and graphics as possible
Readable from top to bottom or left to right
Include a link to the paper, perhaps using the DOI
Include "FirstAuthor et al." if not listing all authors and the journal and year of publication
Include your institutional and/or publisher logo
Use a minimum 531X1328 pixel size with at least 300 dpi
