Since Nature Masterclasses launched in 2015, we have helped thousands of researchers learn how to turn great science into great papers – and now we have big plans for a relaunch of the website in May this year.

What’s going on?

  • The same high-quality Scientific Writing and Publishing and Focus on Peer Review courses.

  • Improved navigation – the Scientific Writing and Publishing course will be delivered in three parts, making content easy to find.

  • ‘Dip in’ design – bite-size lessons containing videos and interactive activities will make it easy to log in and learn in 10 minutes.

  • A new course launching in September – with more courses to follow in 2020 and beyond.

Our website address will remain the same so there’ll be no need to update browser bookmarks.

What happens next?

When the website relaunches in May, everyone registered with a Nature Masterclasses account will receive an email with instructions on how to log in to the new site. There will be no disruption to the website or your course access.

Course progress

Due to data transfer limitations, the record of what registered users have already completed in our courses cannot be migrated to the new website. So if you are part way through a course, why not check your course progress before May using the links below:

Alternatively, if your lab, department, or institution subscribes to Nature Masterclasses (giving you access to our Scientific Writing and Publishing course), you are welcome to contact us before 31 May and we will send you a record of your Scientific Writing and Publishing course progress.


If you have completed 80% or more of our courses, congratulations – you have unlocked a certificate. Follow the links below to download any certificates and don’t forget to do this before  the new site launches in early May.

We are looking forward to the new website arriving and hope you will like the improvements. For now, happy learning!
