Hello all

Would you list references on a poster about a research study that is for a non-academic audience? Opinion or informed advice welcome.

Cheers
Tudor

I would but I would place the reference as small footnotes, rather than citing within text.

All the posters I've done have been for mixed audiences, and I've been advised to leave off things like references and footnotes, and just focus on making a good poster with a mix of images and text to get the message across.

I squeezed two on... sort of wished I hadn't lol as it looks a bit tatty (simply because you can tell I forgot and then added them). But then again, it adds to the overall tattiness of it : D
Cheers all!

Is there an alternative of having references on a handout for anyone with an interest in reading further?

Probably a good idea. I just didn't have time as I needed to print the thing.
