Tips for a good “Journal club” presentation
  • If the room will be dark, consider a dark blue background with pale pastel text.
    • Pale yellow and blue work well. White does not project well
    • If the room will be bright, a pale background with dark text works well
  • Overall, be careful with color. Use no more than 2 colors/slide for text and not many more for graphics.
    • Red should be reserved for creating emphasis as the eye is immediately drawn to red in a slide.
  • Always strive for large differences in contrast between text and background, otherwise the slide will be difficult to read
  • The “golden rule” is 5 lines with 5 words/line for text slides
    • Large blocks of text are to be avoided
