  • Get involved with peer review

    16 September 2019

    As a publisher, we know that the best way to maintain the quality of our journals is to ensure that all articles undergo rigorous peer review. As a membership charity, we also know that Early Career Microbiologists (ECMs) are the future of the Society and of our journals. In 2018 we decided to launch a new journal, Access Microbiology, under an innovative editorial model which put ECMs into decision-making roles as Editor Mentees. The model has succeeded beyond our expectations, proving the energy, skill and enthusiasm of our ECM Editor Mentees. This week we are excited to launch a complementary new initiative to help other ECMs develop their peer review skills: Reviewer Mentees.
