In 2011, the Nature Masterclasses team ran our first workshop for researchers. It was held in Serock, Poland, to a group of 50 researchers who were interested in learning more about how to craft a scientific manuscript for a high quality publication. Our aim now, as it was then, is to help institutions and laboratories support their researchers to communicate their research clearly and effectively.

Nature Masterclasses now exists in three formats:

  • Face-to-face workshops
  • An online course
  • Webinars

Face-to-face workshops

Delivered by Nature journal editors, these one- to three-day workshops are a great opportunity for researchers to learn about the scientific publishing process directly from the experts, ask questions and have their own work reviewed by Nature journal editors.

Find out more about our workshops.


Our online course in scientific writing and publishing has designed for busy researchers. Delivered as a series of short videos from Nature journal editors, combined with activities to test their understanding, the course touches upon all aspects of the writing and publishing process.

Find out more about our online training.


Our 90-minute webinars cover scientific writing and publishing topics, tailored to the institution taking part. The webinars are led by Nature journal editors and allow a larger group of researchers (up to 100) to learn from and interact with the editors.
