Mentorship and Networking: Benefit from the expertise of seasoned top reviewers and current Editorial Board members who will guide you throughout the training process. Our experienced reviewers and Editors will provide constructive feedback and support as you develop your reviewing skills. Gain the opportunity to develop a new relationship with a more senior ASBMR member in your area of research.
Certificate of Completion: Receive a certificate upon successfully completing the Reviewer Training Track, recognizing your commitment to these professional development skills and credit for your invaluable work as a future peer reviewer.
Duration: The training track will run annually from January to December, starting January 2024, with a 12-month program combining one-on-one mentorship with an Editorial Board member or experienced reviewer (virtually as needed), case studies in challenging reviews, feedback from the Editors-in-Chief and journal Editors, and reviewer development webinars.
Availability: The Journal Reviewer Training Track requires a commitment of time and effort. We anticipate that members of the training track should be available to review four (4) JBMR®/JBMR® Plus papers in the first year, spending approximately 8-10 hours per paper. Reviews will need to be completed within ~ 10 days of agreement to review. Participants should also anticipate mentoring sessions for each paper with an Editorial Board member or experienced reviewer. In addition, we expect all the RTT members to complete a concurrent educational program of at least 3 hours over the year.
Eligibility: The training track is open to all ASBMR members who have completed at least 2 years of Master's, PhD, MD, or another terminal degree/equivalent education, and who have a keen interest in scholarly publishing and a desire to contribute as a reviewer. No previous peer review experience is required and individuals at all career levels are encouraged to apply for the training.
