Data visualisation: Tips to improve interpretability and accessibility by Dr Tracey Weissgerber
21 March @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm GMT
About the speaker
Tracey Weissgerber is a meta-researcher at the BIH QUEST Center for Responsible Research (Berlin Institute of Health at Charité). Her research focuses on improving data visualization, statistical reporting, open methods, and other factors that affect transparency and reproducibility. Her teams’ work on bar graphs of continuous data has led to policy changes in many journals that encourage authors to replace bar graphs with more informative graphics. Dr Weissgerber’s team also designs automated screening tools to help authors to improve their papers.
