JCF Reviewer Mentoring Program

The Journal of Cardiac Failure (JCF) is accepting applications for their pilot reviewer mentorship program. This program is geared toward early career members in all clinician areas as well as international locations. A major requirement is to be interested in learning more about peer review publishing and how to review papers for academic journals. JCF would like for those interested in being a Mentee OR Mentor to apply.  The pilot will initially consist of 10 Mentees and 5 Mentors. 


The program will be six months in length and will consistent of several meetings, both as a group and one on one (i.e., mentor – mentee), as well as hands-on experience reviewing papers, with guidance and feedback from mentors. JCF Leadership will also participate in some of the group meetings to discuss the process of peer-review publishing and answer general questions. 

Mentees will be assigned at least one paper a month to review, starting in February 2022, utilizing the information gained during the first month of the program (January 2022) and discussions with their mentors. (Mentees will not be assigned more than two papers in one month.)

Mentors will be expected to meet with their mentees at least two times a month (via Zoom) and provide effective guidance and feedback on mentee assigned reviews. 

For people who successfully fulfill the program, they will receive a certificate of completion from JCF, as well as the possibility of being invited to join the Editorial Board Member group of reviewers for JCF.
