Infographics Service

A Powerful Tool for Increasing Engagement and the Impact Potential of your Research

Looking to boost the reach and impact of your research? Infographics, also known as graphical abstracts, are becoming increasingly popular in academic research, and with good reason. By presenting data or ideas in a visual medium, infographics allow researchers to demonstrate complex information in a way that can be quickly and easily understood by your target audience. They are also a powerful tool for research promotion, making your work more memorable, more engaging, more likely to be shared among other academics or on social media, and more likely to stand out and have an impact on your field of study. 


At Charlesworth Author Services, we are experts in helping you to get the visibility that your research and hard work deserves. By using our infographic service, you can greatly improve your chances of getting your work noticed. Place an order for a high-quality academic infographic today if you would like to benefit from the increased recognition that comes with effective and engaging graphics. Alternatively, our Video Abstract service could be exactly what you need to ensure your work reaches its full potential and fully engages your target audience.

If ordering our Premium infographic service, you will be sent a synopsis to review before we produce a PDF of your 2D infographic. Please make sure that any specific instructions are included before we produce your graphic to avoid the need for revisions. We won’t produce your infographic until you are happy with the synopsis. 


For the Essential infographic service, we replicate your rough sketch, so it is important that this is very clear and free from errors to avoid the need for revisions at additional cost.  

Revisions can be made to any graphic that we produce for you, but they will be chargeable. We do, however, take every measure to ensure that revisions will not be needed, or that any necessary revisions are minor.


With our Premium infographic service, we work closely with you to capture your full requirements at the synopsis stage so we can avoid the need for revisions. We will not proceed with creating your infographic until you are 100% happy with the synopsis.


With our Essential infographic service, we create a line-drawing from your sketch. If you are confident in the content of your sketch the likelihood that revisions will be required is minimised.


With both our Essential and Premium infographic services, revisions are charged based on a scale depending on the depth of revision required. Revisions are categorized into minor, medium and major revisions. Minor revisions are typically a colour change, text replacement, or small image replacement. For some major revisions, you may be charged full price if we have to create a new graphic from scratch. We will advise you what category your revision will fall into before commencing any work. 


Revisions are charged according to the scale below: 


Essential Infographic Service:


Minor Revisions - you pay $75.00


Medium Revisions - you pay $150.00


Major Revisions - you pay $300 as we need to create a new graphic


 


Premium Infographic Service: 


Minor Revisions - you pay $150


Medium Revisions - you pay $300


Major Revision - priced seperately 

This depends on the type of revision you require, but typically, revisions are completed in 48 - 72 working hours.

Tracking the conversations about your work within your research community is important as it allows you to understand the broader reach of your research. Equally, funders increasingly want to see evidence of broader research dissemination. By assigning a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to your graphic, altmetrics can be used to give you an idea of the impact your research is having. 

Explaining complex information in text can sometimes be challenging and figures and tables are commonly used to make an article more readable. One key difference between the use of figures and infographics is that figures are contained within the article and are used to display results within the article. There can be multiple figures within one article. 


Infographics are also used to help readers quickly understand the main research theme, but their visual content is usually wider than that displayed in a single figure. A good infographic can quickly convey the key 'take-home' message of your research, including methodology and results. It will help the reader quickly decide if they want to read your article. Additionally, infographics can be used pre-publication as part of funding applications and post-publication as part of disseminating your research in an accessible format.
