Behind the Scenes at Nature Neuroscience
October 11, 2018 @ 16:00 - 17:00
Meet Nature Neuroscience Senior Editor Dr Leonie Welberg
Thursday 11 October – 4pm at the Large Lecture Theatre, Le Gros Clark Bldg
The Cortex Club is delighted to host Dr Leonie Welberg, senior editor at Nature Neuroscience. Please join us at the Large Lecture Theatre in the Le Gros Clark Building, Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, for an exciting opportunity to get a glimpse behind the scenes at Nature Neuroscience.
Dr Welberg also kindly offered to meet PhD students and postdocs individually to discuss the publishing industry and possible pathways that might lead to a career in publishing. If you would like to arrange a meeting for Friday 12 October, please contact Lukas Krone (lukas.krone -at- dpag.ox.ac.uk).
Publishing research papers is an integral part of the scientific endeavour, but getting published in high-profile journals can be challenging and the publication process may seem mysterious. In this presentation Dr Leonie Welberg, senior editor at Nature Neuroscience, will explain the editorial process at Nature Neuroscience, from manuscript submission, initial editorial evaluation and peer-review to the journal’s decision to publish (or not) a given manuscript. She will also discuss aspects of publishing in high-profile science journals more broadly, and touch upon hot topics such as reproducibility, peer review models, open access and preprints.
