this is not intended as endorsing Nature group journals above any other, but since these journals are often seen as both desirable to submit to, as well as difficult to get published in, the talk will help give some insight into how to write and target such manuscripts. The talk may be particularly interesting to Ph.D. students, post docs and other junior researchers, but everyone is warmly welcome!

About the talk: Jo is a full-time Earth Science editor for the journal Nature Communications and will give a short talk about the journal’s editorial policies and where it fits in relation to the other Nature group journals. She will also describe how the publication process operates and offer advice on preparing manuscripts for submission and publication. Afterwards she will be happy to answer any questions regarding publishing with the journal, and if anyone would like to arrange a longer one-to-one chat with Jo, please just get in touch with me.

Description of the journal: Nature Communications is a multidisciplinary, online-only journal that publishes high-quality research from all areas of the natural sciences as part of the Nature Publishing Group. Previously the journal was hybrid, offering either open access or subscription publication routes, but has been fully open access since last October.
