Author Mentor Program

The goal of the JAFSCD Author Mentor Program is to provide less experienced researchers or professionals with no-cost, short-term (1 to 2 hours) technical assistance in preparing a submission to JAFSCD. This might be a research paper or reflective essay (peer-reviewed) or a commentary, viewpoint, or a Voices of the Grassroots story (not peer-reviewed). The assistance may include:
  • General advice in focusing the topic
  • Modest editorial help—sentence clarity and logic
  • Assistance in submitting the draft to JAFSCD

The JAFSCD Author Mentor Program is intended to provide limited, general guidance on a manuscript, and not to perform in-depth and technical services such as would typically be provided by a paid consultant. Our mentors are volunteers who provide guidance based on their knowledge and experience, and we provide no warranty, expressly stated or implied, regarding the usefulness of this guidance to you and your project. In addition, we cannot guarantee that a suitable mentor will be available to assist you.
