• Guided Open Access icon

    Nature Methods is taking part in Guided Open Access (OA), a pilot designed to make the process of publishing open access simpler, quicker, and more efficient. In Guided OA, an article is considered collaboratively at a group of associated journals, and authors are then guided through the process to find the best home for their work.

    Machine learning-based approaches are being increasingly applied in life sciences research. This series of articles proposes community reporting standards, intended to help improve the reproducibility and usability of machine learning-based analyses.

Nature Methods is a Transformative Journal; authors can publish using the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

Our Open Access option complies with funder and institutional requirements.
