Summary:

Your researchers have an increasing focus and responsibility to contribute towards solving the world’s most pressing challenges. Some research fields are huge, so how do your students know what is the most important and relevant content to their disciplines? How can experienced researchers follow key trends and discoveries? Reviews journals are a unique resource and teaching tool provided by libraries and used by students and faculty members alike to help accelerate learning, and make original research more accessible.

Join us for this 1-hour webinar with Jill Adie, Senior Publishing Manager, and Mina Razzak, Editorial Director of Nature Reviews at Nature Research, to hear about how these journals play an increasing role in collaborative approaches across scientific publishing as well as discussing developments and ‘real-life’ impact. This webinar will include a lively Q&A for librarians, editors and researchers.
