Oftentimes, researchers talk about a paper that's been published "in Nature" (typically to establish its notoriety). However, I would like to clarify exactly what this means.
Along with Nature, the Nature Publishing Group publishes a wide range of journals, including journals with the word "Nature" in the title, such as Nature Biotechnology, Nature Cell Biology, and so on. Other journals published by Nature Publishing Group do not include the word "Nature" in the title, such as Heredity, Molecular Systems Biology, and so on. (See the journal index.) With this in mind, it does not seem clear to me exactly what it means to have published "in Nature".
Question: When someone says they've published "in Nature", does this literally mean they have published in the journal entitled Nature?
