Title Workshop: Nature Masterclasses Webinars by SPRINGER NATURE
 
 Nature Masterclasses is a paper writing workshop led by editors from Nature Research, a division of Springer Nature.
  In addition to lectures on writing papers, each participant will have an 8-minute individual session where they can discuss their paper abstract with a Nature editor on a one-on-one basis.
  This workshop will be held in a small group of 30 participants, targeting researchers who have already written or published several papers and are planning to submit papers to high impact journals. For this reason, instead of accepting applications on a first-come, first-served basis, the Planning Section has set up certain requirements for participation.
