Sunrise Seminar: Nature Masterclasses: Supporting Researcher Development

Monday, May 29
7:00 AM - 8:55 AM
Room: 611

Publication is really important to a researcher because it is the way that you get to tell the world what you have done and what you think it means. But getting published in a top-tier journal can be competitive. The number of researchers has been growing steadily by 4%–5% per year, yet the average acceptance rate at scientific journals is only around 50%. It is therefore vital that researchers understand how to write effectively and how the publishing process works. However in a 2014 survey of postdocs, 59% said they do not have well-developed writing skills, 54% received only informal training from thesis mentors, and 12% received no training at all. With the aim of providing researchers with a professional training solution, Nature Research has developed Nature Masterclasses, a training service devoted to scientific publishing and delivered by Nature journal editors. As a medical librarian, this session will teach you how Nature Masterclasses enable you to support your researchers with scientific writing and publishing training.
