Visualize your Data
You know the feeling, you are writing a paper or and article and you have data you need to incorporate in order to substantiate your argument and analysis but how to operationalize and visualize this data? To answer that question New Economist presents a quite remarkable source; see also the original hat tip. The diagram from visual-literacy.org is made as a template of the periodic table from the natural sciences and features just about any conceivable visualization of data you can imagine. This is really a necessary bookmark for any academic and should prove much useful when you are occasionally low on creativity.
