Information for authors

In the Nature Research press office, we promote research and other content published in our journals. Most of our team are based in London, although we also have press officers in New York and Shanghai, and additional support in Japan, Germany and Dubai. More information about our team is available here and you can contact us on

We aim to keep authors and their press offices up to date with information regarding their paper, including the publication date and embargo details. If you are an author of a manuscript that has been accepted for publication, we suggest that you contact your press office as soon as you are notified of the acceptance of your paper, as they may be able to help you promote your paper and manage any media enquiries. Please do let them know, however, that the paper remains under embargo until the time of publication. 

We also recommend that authors and their press offices consult the Nature Research embargo policy, and further information can be found in the FAQs below.
