Does presentation of novel data (for example posters/talks at conferences) decrease the chance of publishing in Nature ('the data is not novel anymore')?

Hi Martin. Presenting your results at conferences, in talks, in posters or via pre-prints does not compromise the possibility that your paper is considered for publication at Nature, as long as you do not publish a conference paper or proceedings off the back of it.

However, Nature reserves the right to decline publications if certain results have already received too much coverage in the press, and we would therefore advise you not to speak to the press or respond to their queries until publication if you wish to publish your work with Nature.
