Texas Tech University students and faculty looking to get their research published in a scholarly journal will have a rare opportunity next week to learn what those journals are really looking for.
Nick Campbell, executive editor and executive vice president for global institutional partnerships at Nature Research, will speak on “How to Get Published in Nature” at 1:30 p.m. Thursday (Nov. 10) in the Formby Room of the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library. The lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
“I am delighted to have a chance to visit Texas Tech for the first time,” Campbell said. “I am really looking forward to learning more about their research program and future plans.”
Campbell joined what was then Nature Publishing Group in 2001 and has worked as an editor on Nature Reviews Genetics, executive editor of a suite of genetics journals and leader of publishing partnerships in the Asia-Pacific. As the managing editor of Nature, Campbell led a major digital and print re-launch. Most recently he was executive editor of Nature and director of Nature Research in China. Campbell’s first degree, doctorate and postdoctoral research were in genetics.
