Academic presentations can be uploaded in their original slide format. Presentations are usually represented as slide decks. Videos of presentations can be uploaded as media.
The endpoint of most research is a publication, be that a journal article (hopefully in Nature), a conference presentation or a lab meeting. The premise of Reproducible Research is that not only do we now present a summary of our findings, but we also make available the details, code and (where possible) the data that lead to those findings. Various tools exist to assist us in sharing our work and documenting our workflows. One extremely popular tool for this is R Markdown, which provides the ability to write, document and publish in a single workflow.
Here we present, postOTAGO an R package for creating posters with an Otago theme, that is readily transferable to other organisations.
