Nature Masterclasses

Nature Masterclasses provides online courses and webinars in scientific writing and publishing. The training is delivered by Nature Research journal editors and aims to help institutions and laboratories support their researchers with getting published.

Publication is important for developing the careers and academic reputations of researchers, for raising an institution’s profile, and for ensuring that scientists' ideas reach the people they need to reach. 

To support researchers with publication, Nature Research has developed Nature Masterclasses to offer training in scientific writing and publishing, delivered by Nature Research journal editors. The editors are uniquely positioned to provide insight into publishing to help researchers understand how to publish in top journals.

Coming soon: In September we are launching a new online course about collaboration in research. More information will follow.
