Scientific Writing and Publishing Workshops in the UK and Ireland

From London and the South East, to Scotland, the North West, Wales and Ireland

Learn from Nature Research journal editors how to turn great science into a great manuscript.

Nature Masterclasses runs Scientific Writing and Publishing workshops across the UK and Ireland, helping researchers write and publish great scientific papers.

The workshops can be one-day or two-day, are hosted on-site at public and private institutions, and are tailored to every host institution with discipline-relevant content and exercises.

Every workshop is delivered by two journal editors from Nature Research who travel to the host institution. Researchers benefit from one-to-one interaction with the editors and receive editor feedback on their own abstracts.

Well delivered; logical structure; clear materials and exercises; activities which immediately impacted on the ability to write and present data more clearly. 

96% of workshop participants surveyed in 2018 agreed 'I will be able to apply what I have learnt to my work'. 

94% rated the workshops as 'good' or 'excellent'.
