Title: Demystifying Nature
Abstract: The inner workings of high-profile journals can be mysterious. How do they decide what to publish, or even to send out to review? How is the process managed? What are the odds of getting published? Do they publish papers only in the interests of being controversial and getting press coverage? And who makes the decisions? Michael White — Nature’s editor for climate — discusses the overall journal processes and specific themes behind the climate science research published in Nature over the past 15 years.
