The editors and publishers of Nature seek the opinion of scientists at a series of focus groups this October. The focus groups will be held in San Francisco, Washington DC, Glasgow, Manchester, Oxford, Geneva and Munich. Nature is seeking 20 people in each city. You need not be a regular reader of the journal, or to have published in it.
To be eligible, you must be aged between 25 and 65 and work in the sciences: in academia, a commercial company, NGO, governmental organization or other setting. We are seeking both working scientists and decision-makers within companies/organizations rooted in science.
Participants will receive a token £75/$150 and refreshments in return for three hours of your time.
To register your interest, please complete this online form as soon as you read this post – and before 4 October.
There are additional selection criteria for these focus groups. Regretfully, we can only reply to those chosen to take part.
