Publishing chemistry and materials research in Nature: an editor’s perspective

Seminar | March 2 | 2-3 p.m. | Hildebrand Hall, Library room 100D

 Claire Hansell, Nature

 College of Chemistry

The time between manuscript submission and the binary outcomes of acceptance or rejection can often seem like a black box of intrigue, witchcraft, denial, confusion and much more. However, that is not the intended external face of peer review, and editors make judgements on what is best for any given manuscript every day based on just a few rational principles. Claire Hansell is a senior editor at Nature, previously at Nature Chemistry, and her talk will (hopefully) enlighten as to what goes on at an editor’s desk, with a specific focus on what editors at Nature are looking for in submissions.
