Journals are essential to allow researchers to share their novel study and insights with the research community. Therefore, developing and maintaining an effective journal is crucial to support these goals. However, many researchers do not receive training on how to develop their journal to ensure it is adding value to the field and is highly visible to authors and readers. This 1-day workshop reviews best practices and practical strategies to help editors achieve these goals. Nature Masterclasses workshops are available in-person and virtually.
