Nature Masterclasses offers highly targeted courses designed to enhance the skills and boost the confidence of early career researchers, with over 60,000 researchers globally having benefited from the platform to date. The world-class training is delivered by editors from across the Nature Portfolio of journals as well as experienced researchers, funders, and professionals via a subscription.
This latest move sees free access expanded so all training that was previously behind a paywall will now be available for researchers in registered institutions in lower-income countries.
Researchers can learn at their own pace, in their preferred format, as the online courses are delivered in bite-size lessons and practical tasks with over 45 hours of training available. Topics covered range from persuasive grant writing, scientific writing, and publishing, to data analysis, presentations, and more.
Eligible countries in APAC region include Cambodia, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam. For the full list, see here.
