Role of a scientific editor at Nature Communications - Arshia Nazem

The webinar concerning the role of a scientific editor at Nature Communications was informative and interesting. Publishing an article in Nature certainly takes great effort and ground-breaking findings. Nature is an extremely informative high-quality journal due to its selectivity for findings and studies that can be applied broadly and that also contribute to new ideas and influence thinking in specific fields. I found it quite interesting that Nature Communications is an open access journal which facilitates highest levels of knowledge mobilization for anyone who is interested in science. This webinar helped me to better understand the process and timing of the editorial process. The spectrum of careers in academic publishing is quite overwhelming. Nevertheless, language abilities are one of the most important sills for people in publishing and editorial roles. It is a personal ambition of mine to publish a paper in Nature at some point in the future.
