Colloquium: How to publish (and write) an impactful paper in Nature Astronomy

In a rapidly inflating scientific literature, making your paper stand above the noise is more important and trickier than ever. To do so, you need good science, good writing and a high-quality journal to help you achieve the widest possible dissemination of your work.

Nature Astronomy, launched in January 2017, is a research journal published by Springer Nature. Sitting alongside our sister journal Nature, we publish high impact research in the fields of astronomy, astrophysics and planetary science.

In this talk, I will cover the motivation and scope of the journal, and the types of manuscripts we publish. I will demystify the editorial process and what we look for in papers (and shoot down some urban myths about what it takes to be published in a Nature journal in the process).

I will also cover common pitfalls of writing and submitting papers and I will share hints and tips on how to maximize the impact of your paper, from writing an engaging but informative title and a properly contextualized but concise abstract, to structuring your paper in a way that your results are communicated clearly and succinctly.

Proud to have worked with an international team of astronomers to create the most sensitive images of the Universe ever taken at low radio frequencies✨. The use of #LOFAR reveals images of Milky Way like galaxies in the most distant parts of the Universe https://bit.ly/3cRUWKE
