Reflecting on #RSCPoster 2021


#RSCPoster is a global Twitter Poster Conference, held entirely online over the course of 24 hours. The event brings together the global chemistry community to network with colleagues across the world and at every career stage, share their research and engage in scientific debate.

The 2021 #RSCPoster Twitter Conference was held on 2 March, and brought together 5,500 attendees with almost 900 presenters from 62 countries sharing their science to a potential audience of over 41 million.


Yi-Tao Long, Chemcial ScienceChemical Science Associate Editor Yi-Tao Long was subject chair for #RSCAnalytical – we caught up with him to get his thoughts on the event and some advice for next year.

“This is the first time I joined this #RSCPoster event and found it really impressive. It is a very good opportunity for early career researchers and graduate students to present their work” noted Yi-Tao.

“As an Associate Editor, I think the presentation and storyline are so important for a scientific paper. Of course, science is the most important, but being interesting and appealing to a broad community is also vital” explains Yi-Tao. This advice holds true for #RSCPoster too. Yi-Tao advises, “be clear and readable when presenting the work, this makes it easier for others to be interested, especially researchers in other fields.”

This year’s #RSCAnalytical prize winner, @kellybrown_94, is a great example of this point, as Yi-Tao mentions, “this poster caught my eye at first glance”.

This year we also saw the introduction of #RSCPosterPitch – short videos from our poster presenters bringing their research to life in creative ways. The entries in this new category were impressive, check out the winning #RSCPosterPitch from @alanqf22 for inspiration!
