It is our pleasure to announce this year´s Nature Masterclass!

The Masterclass on Scientific Writing will be a two-day interactive workshop where you get the unique opportunity of direct feedback from editors in Nature journals.

This course is postponed. We are working on finding new dates.

This year we aim the masterclass at IBA supervisors (postdocs, researchers, junior group leaders and associate professors) together with a PhD student.

Supervisors: send in applications for you and one phd-student here: link

Date/Time: August 18th-19th

Place: TBA, Oslo

Topics include:

  • What makes a great paper?
  • Interactive module on designing clear and informative figures and tables
  • The golden rules of writing and structuring the text in your paper
  • + many more

Please bring along a printed version of an abstract of a recent or unpublished manuscript (supervisors) and an abstract for a manuscript in preparation or conference abstract (PhD students).

All will have their abstracts reviewed by Nature editors.

The stay will include a guided tour in the botanical garden in Oslo and a networking dinner on the Tuesday evening.

Course expenses, travel and one night in hotel will be covered by IBA.

Participant spots: 24 (12 supervisors and 12 PhD students). This might be downscaled if there are rules preventing certain group sizes. We are closely following the covid-19 outbreak and will let you know if the course has to be postponed or digitalized.

Please don’t book your travel until you get confirmation from us. We hope we are able to meet in person, but a final decision will be made 6 weeks prior to the course at latest.
