People should not be unfamiliar with strategy,
those who understand it will survive,
those who do not understand it will perish (Sun Tzu, Art of War).

Academic Ideas

Academics can change the world – if they stop talking only to their peers. According to Biswas and Kirchherr, most academic journals are read almost exclusively by their peers and read completely by no more than ten people. It is time for a change. Quality academic research and innovation are crucial. It is equally important to get ideas out into the world beyond academia. It could make a real difference in people’s lives.

Diagrams are graphic representations used to explain the relationships and connections between the parts it illustrates. Using graphs, diagrams and charts can help your reader to get a clearer picture of your research findings and how they compare with other data.
A short, animated diagram gives people a quick intro of what to expect. Use your diagram to tell a story. That's why graphics need a logical flow because it makes them easy to understand and for people to understand what you're trying to tell them. Even with fewer words your message will come across clearly.
