are very excited to kick off the GeroScience Peer Review Training Program! This
program will provide AGE trainee members the opportunity to review manuscripts
submitted for publication to our society journal, GeroScience. In this program,
AGE trainee members will pair with a peer review mentor that they select to
help guide them in drafting a high-quality manuscript review. The editors of
GeroScience along with the Chief Junior Reviewer
(Mitchell) will match trainee expertise with submitted manuscripts to GeroScience and reach out to trainees to solicit
a review. If the trainee agrees to perform the review, they will have two weeks
to work with their mentor to draft a rigorous, critical, and ethical review
that will then be sent back to the Chief Junior Reviewer. These reviews will be
compiled and sent to GeroScience editors and be used for publication decisions.
By providing trainees a pathway to review manuscripts for publication, the
editors of GeroScience have created an important and unique career development
opportunity. Thanks Zoltan and Bill!!!
