Visual Abstracts

SOARD has a dedicated team of Editors who create Visual Abstracts for select accepted papers to use for promotional purposes across our webpages and on social media.

Authors are encouraged to provide a preliminary draft Visual Abstract with their submission by selecting "Visual Abstract" when uploading files. If submitting a preliminary Visual Abstract for the Editors’ consideration, please use the abstract template provided. Authors who upload Visual Abstracts in file types that cannot be edited may be asked by Editors to resubmit if their paper is selected.

Please note: SOARD will not publish Visual Abstracts as part of the published paper. The Visual Abstracts’ intent is to encourage browsing from external sites such as Twitter and other social media.
