Since its launch in 1869, Nature has seen its mission as two-fold: facilitating the prompt communication of the most important scientific developments to the relevant research communities, while at the same time fostering a greater appreciation of these great works of science among the wider public. Although the publishing landscape for scientific research is currently undergoing a period of rapid change, these core principles remain largely unchanged. In this talk, Dr. Frederico Levi, senior editor at Nature Physics, will explain how Nature editors — in particular those based at Nature Physics — apply these principles in practice. He will explain how the editors determine which few of the many excellent research submissions that are received make it through to publication, and how a Nature journal is run. He will also discuss more generally – publishing and scientific communication, exploring career opportunities and how to best communicate research result. The talk will be followed by a question and answer session.
