Publishing your work in an influential journal begins with good research, but there is much more to it. This talk will demystify the editorial process at Nature Portfolio journals, including NatureNature ChemistryNature Communications, and Communications Chemistry. What takes a paper from new submission to an accepted article? We will discuss what the editors look for in a paper and how best to communicate your work to the editor and reviewers to ensure the point gets across. Every stage of the peer review process will be explained, from how editors select referees, to how we make decisions from a set of reports. You will also learn the keys to fashioning a convincing response letter and putting together a successful appeal.
