Speaker: Kyle Legate (Nature Communications)

Submitting your research for publication by a journal can be a black box. What happens between the time you send your manuscript to a journal and you receive a decision on whether your work will be suitable? How do editors make their decisions, and how do they select their reviewers? What are your options if things don’t go your way? Dr Kyle Legate, Team Manager and Senior Editor at Nature Communications, will pull back the curtain and show you what happens behind the scenes at Nature family journals. Knowing about the process from the other side may help you to get the most out of your publishing experience.
