If you would like to become a Publons community volunteer mentor and mentor students in the Publons Academy you can express your interest and give us some details about your field on this "become a mentor page". You can also let us know how many students you'd like to mentor simultaneously. You have to tick to agree to share your email with your assigned mentees for ease of communication.


You have to have a Publons profile and at least a few verified reviews on your profile before we'll consider you as a mentor for a student or early career researcher in the Publons Academy. We prefer mentors to be editing for journals or be on editorial boards, but this is not a requirement. 


We try and match a student asking for help with getting a Publons community mentor by field, so the more detailed and complete your profile is the easier it is to match a student to you. Some students have already done quite a bit of peer review, so we try and find someone who is more senior or a more experienced reviewer. After each successful mentorship you'll receive a certificate updated with the number of students you've mentored.
