Event Description


Access and workshops on nature masterclasses: scientific writing and publishing

Do you want to learn more about the publication process?

As a further element in the researcher development programme, Queens researchers now have access to the online Nature Masterclasses series, focusing on scientific writing and publishing.  The online programme aims to support researchers to get published in journals, supporting researchers during the writing process, to better understand the manuscript selection process and what happens to papers after submission. 

To give you a more detailed overview of the uses and benefits of these materials two workshops will be held each focusing on different elements of the Nature masterclass materials:

16th May: Planning and Writing a Paper: titles, abstracts, introductions and conclusions

14th June: Selecting a Journal and the Publication Process

Both sessions will run from 9.30 am - 12.30 pm, at STDU, 7 Lennoxvale and will be delivered by Dr Dan Soule.  We will also provide information on accessing the online materials.
