We are hosting a launch party for students, postdocs, faculty, and staff on the new resource available for the WPI community: the Nature Online Masterclass in Scientific Writing and Publishing. The online course is organized by editors from the prestigious research journal Nature and provides instruction on how to write a research manuscript or review geared towards leading research journals as well as how to select a journal and have the article published. The course can be taken at your own pace and is broken into modules by topic areas. The course is being offered to the WPI community for free through an institutional membership that was purchased by WPI for fall 2018 through summer 2019. The course is relevant for all students, postdocs, faculty, and research administrators. Registration for the online course must be completed prior to starting the course and registration must be done through an institutional IP address (a computer on campus or a computer connected to WPI through remote access/VPN).
To learn more about the Nature course and how to best navigate the course materials, we will be hosting a launch party for the course from 12-1 PM on Friday, October 5 in the Goats Head Restaurant. The event will feature a live webinar with Nature staff and a free lunch will be provided. Registration for the launch party is required so that we can order the right amount of food.
If you are unable to attend the launch party in person, but are still interested in viewing the webinar remotely, you may do so by registering to remotely view the live webinar.
