That’s Magdalena Skipper. She’s the editor in chief of the journal Nature, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary. Nature is the flagship publication of the Nature family of journals. They’re technical publications with the exception of Scientific American, which is your friendly neighborhood magazine. Skipper was in New York recently and sat down with Scientific American acting editor in chief Curtis Brainard to talk about the history and future of Nature.
