Inside Nature-branded journals

February 28, 2019 - 10:00am
Luke Fleet
Senior Editor and Physics Team Lead, Nature

Nature has been serving scientists and scientific communities since 1869 through publication of significant advances and by providing a forum for the reporting and discussion of news and issues concerning science. Nature-branded journals continue to strive to publish and communicate the most striking developments in science to broad audiences, and we are keen to strengthen the representation of applied sciences and engineering. This presentation will give insight into the policies and processes of the Nature-branded journals, as well into their engagement with science and engineering communities.


Dr. Luke Fleet is a Senior Editor & Team Leader at Nature. Following a PhD on semiconductor spintronics from the University of York and in collaboration with the RIEC at Tohoku University, he undertook postdoctoral research in organic electronics at Imperial College London and the London Centre for Nanotechnology. Luke joined Nature Research in 2013 as an editor at Nature Communications, before moving to Nature Physics in 2014, and then to Nature in 2017. In his role, Luke is responsible for selecting the research papers that are published in Nature across a range of fields, including applied physics & electronics. He also assists the Chief Editor in devising and delivering the goals for the physics team.
