You may have noticed that Behind the Paper posts now have journal name badges! 

To add your journal name, simply click on the appropriate badge when you write a post. You will see all the journal name badges on the right hand side, underneath the channels. You can see some examples, below.

Click on the badge to add the journal name to the top of the post, and on the community homepage, as shown below.

Even better, if you click on the journal name badge, it will take you to all content related to that journal. For example, you can see all content for Nature Astronomy by clicking on the badge at the top of this post, or here.

Make sure you only add one journal name badge; a second badge will be added automatically showing whether you are a Contributor or Editor (or work for Nature Research). This cannot be changed as it shows whether you are one of our Nature Research Editors or a Contributor from the research community. 

If you don't see your journal name, let us know by commenting on this post, or emailing us at

I trained as a virologist, starting with an undergraduate degree in virology from the University of Warwick, UK. My PhD, in influenza virus genetics and immunoevasion, was from Public Health England and the University of Reading, UK, with Maria Zambon and Wendy Barclay. My research interests then moved to smallpox vaccines, viral ion channels and cell adhesion, while a postdoc at Imperial College London with Geoffrey Smith, FRS. I then joined open-access publisher BioMed Central in 2011 as an editor and then associate publisher and was Head of Communities & Engagement at Springer Nature from 2016, running the Nature Research Communities and other online engagement activities for researchers. I joined Nature Medicine in 2021, with responsibility for news and opinion content, and am based in the London office.
