Nature Masterclasses has been developed by Nature Research to provide professional development training for researchers. Nature Research is part of Springer Nature, a leading academic and educational publisher. Nature Research's flagship publication is Nature, a weekly multidisciplinary journal first published in 1869.
Nature Masterclasses began as a provider of scientific writing and publishing training — drawing on the expertise of journal editors at Nature Research. In 2016, we expanded our training to peer reviewers with the launch of our second online course, Focus on Peer Review. And 2019 sees the launch of our third course, Effective Collaboration in Research. To-date, over 50,000 researchers from over 180 countries have benefited from our training.
