After a brief introduction to Springer Nature and Nature Research — the brand behind the Nature journals as well as a suite of services to scientists — Bart Verberck will provide an overview of the inner workings of a Nature Research journal, with Nature Physics as an example.  He will focus on the editorial process at a Nature Research journal, explain the roles of editors and discuss editorial criteria for publication.  Along the way, Bart Verberck will give some advice on how to present research.  He will reflect on the value Nature Physics aims to bring to the physics community, as well as on the ever evolving role of scientific publishers.
