JCF Reviewer Mentoring Program

The JCF Reviewer Mentorship Program provides a structured program on how to conduct and write an effective peer review on a wide range of paper types typically seen in scientific academic journals. The program first launched in 2022 with a pilot group of 13 mentees and seven mentors. 

This 9-month long program involves pairing mentees with mentors (skilled experienced reviewers) to conduct reviews on selected papers submitted to JCF in real-time. Coupled with these assignments are curated monthly didactic sessions to cover review conduct, statistics pearls, the importance of reviewing with the lens of Diversity Equity Inclusion and Belonging, among others on a virtual platform.

Graduates of the program receive a Certificate of Completion and a letter sent to their institutional leadership about their participation and completion of the program. Previous graduates have also been invited to lead editorials for publication in JCF.

The deadline to apply for the 2023 JCF Reviewer Mentorship program is now past and JCF is no longer accepting applications for this cohort group. Information on application deadlines for the 2024 cohort will be available in October 2023.
