    Publishing in Nature: Making an Impact


    I will discuss what the challenges and opportunities of publishing in high impact journals. I will outline Nature’s approach to manuscript assessment and peer review and give some hints and tips on how researchers can best approach these publishing processes to maximise their chances of publication. I’ll also discuss how researchers can engage with science publications more broadly to elevate their profile. Finally I’ll offer a perspective on important emerging issues in science publishing and how publishers are approaching these issues.
