The Journal of Psychosocial Oncology Research and Practice is proud to be working with IPOS to offer a mentorship programme for researchers in the early stages of their careers who are looking to hone their skills as peer reviewers. This scheme teams Early Career Researchers (ECRs) with seasoned reviewers and members of the journal’s Editorial Board to develop the ECR’s skill set to become valued participants in the peer review community.

To be considered as an applicant for this programme, you must:

  • Be a current member of IPOS for 2021, either as a Member-in-training (student) or a psycho-oncology professional who is within three years of his/her ultimate degree and is a practicing professional.
  • Be enrolled in, or have recently completed, a graduate-level program in an appropriate area of study (e.g. medicine, psychology, nursing/allied health, social work, epidemiology, public health; other fields may be approved based on rationale you provide)
  • Complete the basic peer-review training course offered by the Publisher

You will work with an assigned mentor (usually a current member of the JPORP Editorial Board) to do two co-reviews. Any queries related to this scheme can be directed to Prof Nick Hulbert-Williams, one of the Journal Associate Editors. ECRs who complete this training programme will be added to the list of approved reviewers for the journal, and will be provided with a certificate of completion.

If you are not currently registered as an IPOS Member-in-training (student) or an Early Career Psycho-Oncology Professional, please visit www.ipos-society.org/membership/ for membership information.

To apply to be part of the ECR Reviewer Training Programme, please download and fill in the application form, which can be found here, and email it to the journal Senior Publisher, Tarryn Greenberg. Spaces are limited and available on a first-come-first-serve basis, so there will likely be a wait before you are asked to participate in a review.
