Scientific Writing and Publishing Workshops: Australia

From Brisbane, Sydney and Canberra to Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth

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

Nature Masterclasses runs Scientific Writing and Publishing workshops across Australia, helping researchers and institutions improve the quality of their publications.

Every workshop is delivered by two Nature Research journal editors, offering one-to-one editor interaction - including feedback on participants' real abstracts.

The one-day and two-day workshops are hosted on-site at universities and research institutes, and are tailored to each institution, with editors and content matched to the subject area of the participants. 

It was very informative, very comprehensive and very clear. I feel much more confident now about how to prepare and present my work in publications. 


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'.
