So, you've discovered something extraordinary and you want to consider publishing in a Nature journal. But which one should you choose? Indeed, why has Nature spawned so many new titles? What is Nature Communications, and what is it trying to do that other Nature journal don't do already? And what is Open Access? In this talk I'll try to answer these and any other questions you have about getting published in a Nature journal, mainly Nature Communications. I'll also cover: why are we here and what are we looking for in China?
