Will You Be A Mentor?
Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society, is seeking professional researchers to guide students through the process of publishing research.
Those who volunteer will be mentor-reviewers for pre-collegiate students who submit research manuscripts to Sigma Xi's new journal, Chronicle of The New Researcher.
CTNR is an online, open-access journal exclusively for pre-collegiate students to publish their research results.
The time and effort of mentor-reviewers will make a difference in the careers of these students. Mentor-reviewers will help them understand how to use experimental methods, document findings, write in a way that is appropriate for scientific publication, and use feedback.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor-reviewer, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Membership in Sigma Xi is not required.
Chronicle of The New Researcher is supported with generous funds from DIRECTV.
