Mr. Karl Ziemelis (Chief Physical Sciences Editor, Nature)
"Inside Nature"
Since its launch in 1869, Nature has seen its mission as two-fold: facilitating the prompt communication of the most important scientific developments to the relevant research communities, while at the same time fostering a greater appreciation of these great works of science amongst the wider public. Although the publishing landscape for scientific research is currently undergoing a period of unprecedented change, these core principles remain largely unchanged. In this talk, I will endeavour to shed light on how Nature editors apply these principles in practice, and so determine which few of the many excellent research submissions that we receive make it through to publication.
