11:50 Part II 'My path in research' by Dr. Christiana Varnava

Launched in January 2018, Nature Electronics is an online-only monthly journal publishing the best research from all areas of electronics, incorporating the work of scientists, engineers and researchers in industry. Nature Electronics publishes both fundamental and applied research across all areas of electronics, including optoelectronics, from the study of novel phenomena and devices, to the design, construction and wider application of electronic circuits. It also covers commercial and industrial aspects of electronics research. In Part I of this talk I will introduce the journal and try to answer any questions you have about getting published with Springer Nature. I'll also cover: what we look for in the papers that we consider for publication; the mechanics of how submissions are handled; how to decide if your paper could be for us; and what to do when you think we (or our referees) have got a decision wrong. In Part II of this talk I will give an outline of my career so far and how I came to be an editor with Springer Nature.
