Delivered by Nature Research journal editors

Every webinar is presented by two journal editors from Nature Research, giving researchers a real insight into the perspective of editors.

Researchers get the opportunity to hear directly from the editors and ask questions about the publishing process.

Example webinars:

"Think like an editor"

How readers, reviewers, and editors see your paper

"Publishing for first-timers"

A scenario-based introduction to the manuscript submission process

Tailored to each institution

The webinars can cater for researchers with mixed subject areas or be tailored by subject area — using editors and examples appropriate to the researchers.

Content can also be tailored to the researchers' experience level.

Every institution receives a post-webinar wrap-up report containing feedback from their researchers — collected via a questionnaire after the webinar.

Interactive and practical

Polls and Q&A sessions encourage researchers to feel engaged, and ask questions, and share their own experiences. This peer-to-peer learning can be particularly valuable for researchers who are off-campus and unable to attend in-person workshops.

Example agenda for "Think like an editor" webinars:

Part 1: See your paper from the perspective of readers, editors, and peer reviewers
