JCF Reviewer Mentoring Program

The Journal of Cardiac Failure (JCF) is now accepting applications for their 2024 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 2024 Cohort will consist of 10 Mentees and 5 Mentors. 

The program will be nine months in length and will consist 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 papers to review, starting in August 2024, utilizing the information gained during the first month of the program (July 2024) and discussions with their mentors. 

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

Those who successfully fulfill the program will receive a certificate of completion from JCF, as well as the opportunity to write editorials for accepted papers they reviewed during the program.
